Studio Kinbaku is a private dojo devoted to ongoing education and practice of the art of Kinbaku. We are dedicated to promoting a safe and positive environment for our visitors.  Studio Kinbaku is owned by T0ne who has been studying rope bondage for nearly 10 years. T0ne is an experienced instructor and performer. Studio Kinbaku is made possible in large part by the support of his loving partners – kitten, leafwhistle, and p1x13 – and the generous people of the St. Louis community. There really are no words to capture our gratitude. Thank you all for your support and donations!  With eleven hard points, plenty of padded floor space, and two hangout areas, we’re confident we’ve created a resource like no other for St. Louis rope enthusiasts. We look forward to offering a safe and positive rope space to the St. Louis community.
