Yagami Ren is a Kinbaku expert specializing in the Yagami style of torture rope and Kinbaku techniques with his own original style of Hojojutsu (traditional rope techniques of the Japanese police from the 13th to mid 20th century). He is a professional rope artist in Japan since 7 years.

He was among Nawashi Kanna students until 2012, when he started to trace his own route, being active in the adult video market, live shows, magazines. From that time, he started to develop the Yagami ryû (Yagami style) -  Karada o shibari nagare o musubu" " tie the body to establish a connection/flow" - by incorporating some of the techniques learned from his training in Aikido from a very young age into his style of Kinbaku and creating as well a Yagami style of Hojojutsu.

One of his favorite motto is "in jou bi baku" meaning "sensual rope beautiful tie " which could be interpreted as tying in an sensual/sexual way to show the partner‘s power of seduction and force out the hidden internal eros.

As described above, Yagami Ryuu is not so much Shibari as an pure aesthetic art form but as a practice deeply grounded in eros and sex. In that sense, the Yagami Ryuu also teaches that " even without rope one can tie and enjoy SM"
