A path to creativity in traditional rope bondage
… and what we can learn from artisans and martial arts

What does it mean to be creative in Kinbaku? How to innovate in a traditional art? When is a tie, a pattern, or a figure „new“? And is it important?

Dealing with „innovation“ and „creativity“ professionally and bringing the experience of 15 years training in traditional Japanese martial art, Alexander from @discoverkinbaku will discuss ideas how to navigate between tradition and innovation, between heritage and dogmatism.

We will touch the question what learning and training means in the Japanese traditions, and talk about concepts like SHU-HA-RI and UKEMI and how they could help us to make progress in our own Kinbaku.
Of course, there will be time for Q&A and discussion.
