### Who are they?
Soptik is a bondage teacher and event organizer. He created his first educational website with information on rope bondage in 2000. After ten years of self-education, he met Hajime Kinoko who became his first teacher of Japanese bondage. Afterwards, his tying was shaped by Osada Steve and 縄師 神凪 NawashiKanna; however, Kinoko Ryu is still his first choice for most of his rope partners. A year later, he started teaching regular bondage workshops and have kept this hobby till today. In the meantime, he met two other teachers who influenced me greatly. The first was Nicolas Yoroï who taught him movement, intimacy, and simplicity in ropes. The second and the most influential was Riccardo Wildties. He introduced Naka Ryu to Soptik.
In recent years teaching ropes has become almost his part-time job. He loves to teach topics he is passionate about, such as predicaments, sadistic, overpowering, and dynamic ways of tying, breath play, and many others.
Joan von Brook is a shibari addict since 2013. First as a rope-bottom, but almost immediately started also tying actively. She have attended many workshops on both sides of ropes. As a rigger, she is mostly influenced by Soptik and Yoroi Nicolas. As a bottom, she greatly benefits from her experience with challenging ties, especially in Naka ryu. Since 2014 you can meet her assisting on workshops organized and taught by Soptik. Her passion is sharing information about rope-bottoming. As a result she has been teaching several workshops on that topic both for floorwork and suspensions in Czech Republic and Netherlands. Recently she has started her own series of workshops for beginners and intermediates. Has various sports and dancing background, loves to look at body and mind as a inseperable unit.
