My decade-plus obsession with rope started in November 2003 in Tokyo. In 2004, a new journey began when I took classes with Nawashi Akechi Denki Sensei. After the Sensei’s death (2005-07-17), I continued to study with Nawashi Kanna (formerly Akechi Kanna) – both of whom remain strong influences on my style today. I frequently travel to Japan to keep alive my passion for rope, studies and research. Since there are so many rope salons in Tokyo, with so many talented rope people, if one keeps one’s heart and eyes open, one will definitely learn a lot about Japan and its rope culture. This amazing odyssey in kinbaku has allowed me to meet/see/learn from so many great people; such as Yukimura Haruki, Nureki Chimuo, Naka Akira, Randa Mai, Miura Takumi, Hajime Kinoko to name a few… Recently I started to look more closely at Naka Akira’s style, especially after the workshop he presented at Berlin’s “Schwelle 7” in January 2014. In addition, I have investigated a number of Hojojutsu patterns, as well as its history.
Over the years, I have performed mainly in Portugal (residing in Lisbon), but also have made appearances across Europe (including the famed “London Festival of the Art of Japanese Bondage”), U.S. (including the famed “Bondage Expo Dallas”) and Japan. I’ve been teaching for several years now in Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Czech Republic, U.K., U.S.A., Canada and Australia. The topics I teach are vast, I usually adjust my classes to the level of the participants – from beginner to experienced.
AmeKitsune is an experienced rope model and enjoys everything from slow, sensual rope to hard-and-fast bondage. She has modelled for fetish performances locally and internationally as well as working behind the scenes, contributing musical arrangement and story design. AmeKitsune is also a rope artist in her own right, and has been tying as well as modelling for the last three years.
