About Us

The Toronto Kinbaku Salon was founded with one purpose – To give people the opportunity to learn the sublime art of Japanese rope bondage in a safe, respectful environment under experienced instructors.

We offer a curriculum that ranges from light bondage (fun with rope and Intro class) for fun and play in the bedroom for the curious, through to multi-transition suspension bondage for the dedicated rope student.

The Salon also hosts weekly rope events. The Open and Sunday Salons are for anyone into rope to come and socialize with other rope people, practice and improve their rope skills and play in a rope centric inclusive environment.

The Toronto Kinbaku Salon is proud to be the oldest and longest running dedicated rope space and school in Canada. The Toronto Kinbaku Salon was opened shortly after Kazami Ranki's first visit / workshop in Toronto as an official Kazami Ryu (school). The grand opening was on MBE weekend of 2013.

The original location was located above The Hideout on Queen Street West (Queen and Augusta). From August 2016 until July 2017 we were located on Spadina above Rol San (Spadina and Baldwin, Kensington Market). In 2017 we moved to Parliament near Carleton in Cabbagetown and in March of 2023 we moved to our current location on Dupont near Landsdown.

What is Kazami-Ryu: 

Kazami Ryu is the style of rope bondage named after the Rope Master of Osaka, Kazami Ranki, and is the style taught at the Toronto Kinbaku Salon.

Kazami Ryu focuses on safety, comfort and balance. These three factors, when practiced diligently, create a sense of security for the partner being tied. Through this sense of security, trust is developed. From this trust springs the deeper connection and understanding that many seek in the Art of Kinbaku.
