Face-up suspension

(aomukezuri, 仰向け吊り)


The aomukezuri is one of the most comfortable suspensions. It is based on a tasuki gote (襷後手), and it offers easy transition from face-up to inverted position.

Once a simple rope corset is added and each leg is lifted we will employ our spirit level to simulate levitation like a magician on the cruise ship. Step aside to provide for your rope partner's self-expression.

Now transition to inverted suspension by first fixing each ankle to the suspension point, then slowly releasing the chest suspension line. Your partner’s entire weight will now be held by the corset contraption. The ankles are tied just for balance and can now be released.

It is time again for some graceful solo dance while the rigger steps aside and provides the rope partner with space for self-expression.

Also in this course:


As a special treat this course also features the very beautiful cat's cradle (ayatorinawa, 綾取り縄) tie which in its complexity will be a welome addition to any rigger's bag of tricks.

Also featured is the iconic hojo-hishinawa (捕縄菱縄) tie. Again, due to its complexity, it will add a new level of skills and be a valuable addition to your tying experience.

Ayatorinawa


If skillfully executed the cat's cradle tie offers a beautiful pattern to learn and to look at.

After practicing this progression well any cruise ship will hire you as magician on the spot.
