Come join SMART Ties on Sunday August 4th.

2-Rope and Potentially 3-Rope too

Join us for an initial look or perhaps a refresher on the classic 2-rope gote. This go-to chest harness tie is often the first/basic version riggers learn and continue to use around the world. Some know it as a box tie, and some a TK (Takate Kote); its better referred to as “Gote Shibari” — which pretty much translates as “hands tied behind the back”.

We will delve into a modification or two of this tie and if time permits, move forward into the 3-rope variation.

Rope/Gear: 4x30' or more is ideal. Safety Shears/Cutting Tool

Class Type: Hands On, Tie Along

Class Setup: Mat/Ground Area (no hard point required)

Remember to bring:

- Your best single column tie (preferred not required)

- A good attitude

-Willingness to learn, share, and be a part of the community

-Rope, if you have some(we do have some to share)

-Comfy clothes(or not)

-Valid, state-issued identification

SMARTies meetings are open to anyone 19 and older and no membership is needed. We aim to be an fun, education-based group focused on teaching, sharing, and exploring the fascinating world of rope, open to ALL levels of experience.
