Docvale - Introduction in Naka Ryu

About Docvale

We are Docvale and Tyka, we started doing ropes together in 2011’s end.
It’s in 2014 that we decided to dedicate ourselves only to the Naka Akira’s style, very influenced by Wildties with whom we are close.
Since 2016, after our trip to Japan and on a recommendation of Naka san and Wildties, we began to work on our own style in which you must certainly perceive old school influences. Our style is directly based on the basics of naka style.


About the workshop

During this workshop, we will study the basics of naka style following three main pillars.

e will speak about tools that will allow going in safer and more playful sessions.
How not to repeat patterns, but understand and think what we do.
How empathy can be concidered as a tool.
How switching between our three pillars, can enhance a session.

We talk around the concepts of past-present-future.
We will describe these three different temporal concepts from the most general point of view on the kinbaku to a more intimate one.

In this part, student will be talk about the different kind of beauty in our style.
And again from a wide point of view to a more intimate one.



To fully appreciate the class and experience at best the practical exercises it is better to attend the class with a rope partner with who with have a high level of confidence and with who we feel totally comfortable.
