Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it accessible for people with disabilities?

Yes! Though the dojo is not the main entrance of the building, there is a wheelchair accessible ramp leading into the dojo entrance, as well as an ADA compliant bathroom and 1 Van accessible  parking space

  • Will you have classes?

Yes! We will have classes as often as we can from as many people that we can from around the world.

  • When?

As for when, this is very much contingent upon the availability of the many great rope tops and bottoms that exist in the world.

  • Will you rent the space for sex positive events?
  • Is nudity allowed in the space?

No and no. Not at this time, our licensing with the city of Mebane and the county of Alamance does not allow us to have nudity on our premise.

Our local government does not smile upon the idea of having an adult establishment due to the prostitution ring that was happening at Dockside Dolls some years ago.

We are confident that in time, we will be able to build  trust and  negotiate with the county of Alamance and the City of Mebane North Carolina to rezone and incorporate nudity into our list of assets.

(We encourage you to dress however you want as long as it is not less than a bikini. We are life positive and encourage you to dress how you feel.)

  • Are classes targeted for specific experience levels?

No. All skill levels are invited to participate in any event that we hold. Some classes may be targeted for advanced or intermediate people, but this should not deter anyone from coming to learn as there is a space for all levels of skill.

We also have days available that can be utilized as a skillshare to increase knowledge of rope bondage as a whole.

If you have knowledge to share, (even beyond rope) we have a compensation format in place to benefit all parties involved.
