Barkas’ Kinbaku Dojo Vancouver provides progressive weekly training in modern Kinbaku technique and philosophy, taught by Barkas or one of their co-instructors. These trainings are designed to supplement and build on each other, to give a thorough, adaptable, and enjoyable understanding of kinbaku.

Each training is roughly divided in three parts. The first part is a warm up, to wake up the fingers and get to know the day’s mood. The second part is the detailed discussion and practice of one topic. The general topic follows a set rotation (see below), though exact technique depends on the needs of the participants on that day and as such is not pre-announced. The last part of the training is dedicated to free tying practice, with the instructor(s) available to answer questions and give feedback.

All levels training – every Thursday

  • Doors: Open at 6:30pm and close at 7pm. No late entry.
  • No pre-registration necessary.
  • Rope is available to borrow for the duration of the session.
  • Topics rotate, each week, as follows: 1st Thurs = technical ties / 2nd Thurs = communication / 3rd Thurs = floorwork / 4th Thurs = suspension / 5th Thurs = freeform ties.
  • Prerequisites: Beginners training has no prerequisites, and is aimed at those who are brand new to rope, or who want to review and practice the fundamentals. All levels training presumes that participants can tie a single column tie. Advanced training presumes that participants have an understanding of suspension mechanics. Participants are welcome to visit or audit trainings above their current tying level. More information here.
  • Cost: $20 per person. Punch cards available (see price list). It is recommended to come with a partner, as the information is directed at tying with another person. Auditing, trios, and switching welcome.
