Sep 12-21 Kinbaku in SF / Folsom St. Week

July 1, 2014 at 6:00 am (general)

TL;DR: Holy Shit! Kazami Ranki and Saki Kamijoo are coming to San Francisco for Folsom. we’ll have classes, private instruction (with Saki or with Kazami,) a Big FUCKing Party, and demos at the fair. Kinbaku in SF will never be the same. Not in SF? Come out, we have room.

Japan is known for it’s wonderful outdoor festivals and street fairs, and so is San Francisco. From where I sit, San Francisco’s best street fair is the one on Folsom, and this year I am happy to be collaborating with RopeArtz in hosting some very special visitors from Japan for that Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Remember kids, FSF is a week earlier and a block further south than it has been in years past so be sure to check out the official website at http://www.folsomstreetfair.com/ to get the real scoop. Our guests –  Kazami Ranki and Saki Kamijoo will be at the fair,  putting on demos with  LA and San Diego’s finest Kinbaku artists at the SoCal Shibari booth.

Kazami Ranki will be leading a three day workshop on the three days before the fair, consisting of a beginners’ class Thursday September 18th and a Friday/Saturday (19th/20th) weekend intensive. More info on the classes soon! Although he is known as the Atrocious Nawashi, Kazami Ranki’s Kinbaku show truly highlights the nature and spirit of the woman in her tied element. He is also holding regular live shows around Japan  and has appeared in numerous DVDs. Kazami will also be available for a very limited number of private classes. These will book fast so contact me to make reservations at mike.west.studio@gmail.com .

If you are looking for information on Japanese artists of any stripe, it can help to search by their name in Romaji both in the Asian (Family Given) and Western (Given Family) style, and also in Japanese itself (go figure) so, to get you started, friend the kind man on https://www.facebook.com/ranki.kazami, go join his SF FB group https://www.facebook.com/events/290216394486323 at then take a gander at

Saki Kamijoo, owner of the tiny yet famous Vampire Squid Bar in Kobe, and one of Japan’s most accomplished mistresses herself, will also be in SF “for the duration,” generally showing SF how to party with her adorable sub Mayu. Saki is known for her fast rope, dynamic and beautiful performances, as well as her love of tequila (she has a serious chunk of my liver pickled in a bottle of Petron.) Saki will be here for a ad hoc performance at Bondage-a-Go-Go Wednesday, September 17th and private lessons the 13th, thru the 18th, also bookable thru me at mike.west.studio@gmail.com .

Saturday the 21st, after the class we will be having a very special very off the chain party. I’m calling it BLACK FUCK. I have put on some wild parties before, but SF has NEVER seen a party like this.
