A Weekend with Pedro & Gestalta
Want to spend a weekend with Pedro & Gestalta, learning from a man who has studied Kinbaku directly with Akechi Denki Sensei, and from a woman who is widely regarded as one of the world’s best rope models and now as a highly distinguished rope top in her own right? When it comes to Rope Artists in the western world, these two are individually right up there with the best of them, and combined are a force to be reckoned with!
The weekend’s schedule shall consist of:
Saturday Slot #1- Line Management exercises (Suspension with TK) (can be done for 3 lines, 4 lines or 5 lines)
Saturday Slot #2- S-Shape Strappado (Semi-suspension/Suspension with Strappado) Introduction to the S-Shape concept and playing with Strappado, can evolve to inversion suspension.
Saturday Slot #3 (after lunch)- Exploring the Hishi – floor/kneeling poses – using different arm/leg structures with the same main pattern “the diamond)
(Note: this exercise is design to be a bit lighter because it’s the first slot after lunch.)
Saturday Slot #4- Getting Twisty #1 (Suspension with TK) – introducing lower back twists through a conventional starting pose (Gyaku-Ebi to Inverted “S”)
Sunday – Slot #5- The Running Loop (Suspension with TK) – exercise to approach vertical to horizontal to vertical (opposite) poses

Sunday – Slot #7 (after lunch)- Exploring the Hishi – standing/one leg up – using different arm/leg structures with the same main pattern “the diamond)
(Note: this exercise is design to be a bit lighter because it’s the first slot after lunch and it’s the continuation of the one on Saturday.)
