    Shouldn't this one come after the TK? Not a big deal, but it makes more sense to the structure of the curriculum.

    And thank you so much for putting the site up. It's really helping me get into rope.

      A frequent TK start is a double-column tie on the arms, which is a slightly tidier approach. It all comes back to the original rationale of shibari, the safe transport of valuable prisoners on foot over large distances. The less valuable ones contributed to the next year's harvest.
