Osaka Dan discovered the art of Japanese Rope Bondage whilst on a working holiday in Osaka, Japan in the late 00’s. He began studying with Kazami Ranki in 2012, consequentially becoming the first foreigner granted permission to teach Kazami style. Since then, he has opened a successful school in Toronto (the Toronto Kinbaku Salon), and has performed and taught in Australia, Japan, Canada, USA, and Europe. His style, much like his personality, is heartfelt, intense and self deprecating. He likes to say that he probably needs more practice.
