In late 2015 Miss Gen was appointed as a Kazami-Ryu instructor by Kazami Ranki, and from 2016 Evil Girls HQ has taken it’s place as a Kazami-Ryu School, with regular classes of this Osaka style of rope.

The Kazami-Ryu curriculum has been carefully tiered in order to provide students with the safest, sanest path on their journey in rope. The classes are offered at four different levels, with the expectation that students have already completed an introductory class in rope bondage such as at Rope-Centric, Peer Rope etc before attending their first Kazami-Ryu class.

Classes are now held at our new home at Shailer Park, the address and other relevant information is supplied as a download link with your confirmation email after booking.
