Ojipan and Goodmosttimes
Ojipan and Goodmosttimes are the teaching team behind the current Devil Mask Society Cell classes. As switches, they specialize in addressing topics from both sides of a tie.
Ojipan has been involved in kink in one form or another for over a decade. He has rigorously been studying rope for five years. Andrew’s rope is heavily influenced by the work of Pedro, Nawashi Kanna, and Hajime Kinoko. He has instructed at Bondage Expo Dallas 2015 & 2016 and Ropecraft New Orleans.
goodmosttimes started her rope education, as a bottom, in early 2012. Happily part of the Devil Mask Society since its inception, she is now one of the driving forces behind many of their local events. She leads the SoCal chapter of Hitchin’ Bitches, moderates annual rope bottoming panels at her local dungeon, and helped produce Ropenspace LA, NARIX 2016, and Kinoko’s Los Angeles Cyber Rope performance. GMT has learned her switchy skills from an array of visiting international instructors. She’s also proud to have performed locally, at Folsom Street Fair, and at Ropecraft NOLA. She thoroughly enjoyed teaching with Ojipan at Ropecraft NOLA and BED 2015 and 2016 as well as at weekend intensives across the US and Canada.
2017 Class Offerings
Advanced Historical Adaptation
An extension of the Historical Adaptation Lab, this discussion will illustrate the process by which Ojipan & Goodmosttimes dissect historical sources for the creation of new patterns. Presenters and attendees will participate in analysis of original source material and critique of the adaptation of fellow students. Sources will be provided.
Prerequisites: An understanding of various components of tying and an open mind for recontextualizing them into something new.
Type: Discussion/Hands On
Do your tensions vary wildly after you’ve finished a tie? Do your knots fall apart? Do you know what it means to have an inverted hitch? While there is no one true way to tie any pattern, an understanding of the components of a pattern is key for successful execution. Through the lens of the Gote (hands behind tie), this class explores proper construction of various knots, locks and frictions.
Prerequisites: Ability to tie a single column tie using a non-collapsing knot is required.
Type: Hands On
3rd Rope Variations
The third rope of the Gote (hands behind tie), offers an opportunity not only to strengthen the structure of your pattern but for personal expression. In this class, we’ll explore multiple options for third rope patterns, their origins, aesthetic and safety considerations. Join us to help grow the creativity of your rope expression.
Prerequisites: Knowledge of the components of at least one three-rope gote.
Type: Hands On
