Osada Steve's Shibari Dojo

A selection of Osada Steve's tutorials from his kinbaku academy.

Osada Steve has been pivotal in bringing authentic Japanese shibari techniques to the west. If you learned the iconic Akechi-style 3-rope TK or a yokozuri (side suspesion), it was probably based on his Osada-ryu version. Living in Tokyo, he has been involved in the scene there for the past 30 years; very few nawashi approach his experience in teaching or performing.

He started his career with Osada Eikichi, who popularised performance shibari, from whom he gets his name. Steve's style is heavily influenced by Yukimura Haruki, grand-master of floor-work, with whom he studied until his death a few years ago. You won't find a better teacher.
