On RopeMarks:

RopeMarks, Bob, does not really need an introduction anymore but for those who have not heard of him:

Bob is from Amsterdam and since decades one of worlds leading riggers and an inspiration for us; a fine connoisseur of true traditional Kinbaku. He started studying and specializing himself professionally in 1999. Over his career he studied in Japan under the lineage of the late Akechi Denki (明智伝鬼) and Naka Akira (奈加あきら). RopeMarks’ work reflects the traditional techniques but is vastly complemented with his own distinct and unique style. His tying is dynamic, fun and wonderful to watch, a display of great technique at amazing speed which he has put on show in performances on stages all over the world and in numerous TV programs.
