Premiering a brand new workshop

The Iconic 6 revisited!

We are excited to announce this first time unique Wildties workshop with new content essential for any semenawa enthusiast.

Early Bird Price: until September 16th only will be £250 and will raise to £300 after that. This is a unique workshop not to be missed, get these tickets while you can.

About the Workshop

There are some ties that are just Iconic in Naka style. Riccardo and Redsabbath have been teaching them over and over in their classes and they gained such popularity that they are now commonly seen tied even by people that do not practice exclusively or intensively their style.

However those ties are but starting points, and way more interesting versions of those ties can be achieved.

In this workshop we will Revisit 6 of the most iconic ties of the style and give them a unique twist.

The ties that will be taught are:

  1. A more dynamic and intricate version of the Kata Ashi
  2. A tortuous re-visitation of the basic S shape, also known as “mermaid” tie, that will end in one of the most constrictive Inversions
  3. A new and creative approach to the waist line Sakasa including a non conventional upper body harness
  4. A way more challenging version of the half ebi, with lost of predicaments
  5. Wildties’ own infamous Fucked up version of a Gyaku Ebi
  6. A re-visitation of Naka Sensei’s famous strappado suspension that will create a new interesting challenge.

As most ties are based on Wildties’ own re-interpretation of the Naka TK, the morning of day one will include explanation and practice of this tie.

Prerequisites for this workshop

About Riccardo Wildties

Riccardo Wildties is an Italian rigger and rope artist. He was first introduced to BDSM 10 years ago and shortly after discovered Japanese rope bondage. For the first few years of his study, Wildties was primarily self-taught and pulled inspiration from many top Japanese and Western riggers, without focusing on one specific style. With his partner Red Sabbath he immersed himself in the art and became one of the most sought out European rope educators and performers.

At the end of 2012, seduced and inspired by the work of Akira Naka, he started to explore a new style based on the use of ropes as a mean of aesthetic erotic torture. He devoted himself totally to Semenawa, focusing his bondage on a very traditional Japanese style.

In 2013 he finally met Akira Naka in Moscow. They felt an immediate connection both on a professional and personal level, and he decided to focus his work entirely on the style of the master.

In August 2014 he had the honor to be invited to perform as main event at Naka Nawakai, Naka Akira’s private session series. It was the first time that someone else than Naka San himself was main event at Naka Nawakai.

In 2015 he officially became Naka Akira’s Ichiban Deshi and had the privilege to tie in a duo session with his Sensei in Tokyo. Naka Akira has acknowledged that though Wildties is his student, that his unique form of bondage is a particular “latin” interpretation which proves to be much more suitable for Western students and models.
He was also received as part of The Naka Nawa Ichimon.

In 2017 he performed at Maniac festival Tokyo, Japan’s largest bondage festival.

In 2018 he had the honor of being the rigger for Sugiura Norio’s workshop in Denmark.

Wildties regularly performs all of Europe and holds workshops and classes.
