Yukinaga is the Bakushi name Max was assigned by his 2 sensei, for having achieved a great understanding and mastering of Kinbaku.
Max has since 1995, together with his wife Tina, had a great interest in the authentic Japanese Kinbaku (in Danish called Japanese bondage)
Due to studies, workshops and seminars throughout Europe and a growing immersion into the Japanese segment, Max and Tina was presented to one of Japan’s largest bakushier (Japanese rope master) Osada Steve, who was Max’s first sensei.
Today, Max has 2 sensei: Osada Steve and Grand Master Yukimura Haruki. Max is Deshi (the priority student) for Osada Steve.
Kinbaku Today was founded in 2014 to promote kinbaku, the art of Japanese erotic rope bondage, to the Western-speaking world.
Since its inception, Zetsu has served as the founding editor for the site, publishing contributions from authors in the US, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
The goal of the site is to provide a forum where people can read announcements about events, books, and video releases, read interviews with Japanese bakushi and models, study tutorials, view galleries of both Western and Japanese rope artists, and learn more about the history of the art of kinbaku.
