I've had the honor of attending the very first Rope Dojo, Tambo has now been to two of them and with any luck several of the minion will be at this one too. Why? They are really good. Seattle has some great rope instruction, but one of the aspects of the Dojo that I really enjoyed was the "mental" aspect. Lots of places can teach you how to tie a knot safley, for me, the Dojo was where I first learned how to "think" with rope. Plan, flow and create.
