Want to spend a weekend with Pedro & Gestalta?
This is an opportunity to learn from a man who has studied Kinbaku directly with Akechi Denki Sensei himself as well as a woman who is widely regarded as one of the world’s best rope models and now as a highly distinguished rope top in her own right.
When it comes to Rope Artists in the western world, these two are individually right up there with the best of them, and combined are a force to be reckoned with!
