The level filter is helpful to find classes adequate to your skills and to decide whether or not you should be practicing a certain exercise. Our classes are ranked by the minimum level required, which means that a class is also suitable for any higher skill level than the one suggested.
It is quite difficult to agree on what levels truly mean when it comes to Shibari as it may vary according to the type of Shibari you are practicing, for example you might be very advanced with floor-play and a total beginner with suspensions. For this reason, our level guide is based on autonomy and skills so it can be applied to all types of rope play.
Our level filter is only a basic guide to help you navigate our content and assess the general difficulty of a class. You should always primarily rely on your better judgment before trying to perform a new exercise. You are responsible for evaluating your own skills honestly and realistically.
All levels can be applied to Floor Play, Harnesses and Suspension.
