Ojipan and goodmosttimes

Ojipan and Goodmosttimes are the teaching team behind the current Devil Mask Society Cell classes. As switches, they specialize in addressing topics from both sides of a tie.

Ojipan

Ojipan has been involved in kink in one form or another for over a decade. He has rigorously been studying rope for five years. Andrew’s rope is heavily influenced by the work of Pedro, Nawashi Kanna, and Hajime Kinoko. He has instructed at Bondage Expo Dallas 2015 & 2016 and Ropecraft New Orleans.

goodmosttimes

goodmosttimes started her rope education, as a bottom, in early 2012. Happily part of the Devil Mask Society since its inception, she is now one of the driving forces behind many of their local events. She leads the SoCal chapter of Hitchin’ Bitches, moderates annual rope bottoming panels at her local dungeon, and helped produce Ropenspace LA, NARIX 2016, and Kinoko’s Los Angeles Cyber Rope performance. GMT has learned her switchy skills from an array of visiting international instructors. She’s also proud to have performed locally, at Folsom Street Fair, and at Ropecraft
NOLA. She thoroughly enjoyed teaching with Ojipan at Ropecraft NOLA and BED 2015 and 2016 as well as at weekend intensives across the US and Canada.

Historical Adaptation Lab

“It’s not about Shibari being great, it’s about individuality.“ Hajime Kinoko, 2011 – This lab is intended to inspire a creative approach to deconstruction and adaptation of ties in the hopes of encouraging more diversity and self-expression in rope bondage. We will focus on exercises in pattern adaptation from historical Japanese sources. Both presenters and attendees will participate in the experimentation with observation and critique. Sources will be provided.

Prerequisites: An understanding of various components of tying and an open mind for recontextualizing them into something new.
