Soptik is a bondage teacher and event organizer from the Czech Republic. He created my first educational website with information on rope bondage in 2000. After ten years of self-education, he met Kinoko Hajime who became his first teacher of Japanese bondage. Afterwards, his tying was shaped by Osada Steve and Kanna; however, Kinoko Ryu is still his first choice for most of my rope partners. A year later, he started teaching regular bondage workshops and have kept this hobby until today. In the meantime, he met two other teachers who influenced him greatly. The first was Yoroi Nicolas who taught him movement, intimacy, and simplicity in ropes. The second and the most influential was Riccardo Wildties. He introduced Soptik to Naka Ryu. The more he studies with Riccardo and Naka Akira, the more he falls in love with this style.
In recent years teaching ropes and organizing foreign teachers’ visits has become almost his part-time job. He loves to teach topics he is passionate about, such as predicaments and sadistic, overpowering, and dynamic ways of tying, breath play, and many others. He loves his job. 🙂
