Pedro’s decade-plus obsession with rope started in 2003 in Tokyo. In 2004, a new journey began when he took classes with Nawashi Akechi Denki Sensei. After the Sensei’s death (2005-07-17), he continued to study with Nawashi Kanna (formerly Akechi Kanna) – both of whom remain strong influences on his style today. He frequently travels to Japan to keep alive his passion for rope, studies and research. Since there are so many rope salons in Tokyo, with so many talented rope people, if one keeps one’s heart and eyes open, one will definitely learn a lot about Japan and it’s rope culture. This amazing odyssey in kinbaku has allowed him to meet/see/learn from so many great people; such as Yukimura Haruki, Nureki Chimuo, Naka Akira, Randa Mai, Miura Takumi, Hajime Kinoko to name a few… Recently he started to look more closely at Naka Akira’s style, especially after the workshop he presented at Berlin in January 2014. In addition, he has investigated a number of Hojojutsu patterns, as well as it’s history.
Over the years, Pedro has performed mainly in Portugal (residing in Lisbon), but also has made appearances across Europe (including the famed "London Festival of the Art of Japanese Bondage”), U.S. (including the famed "Bondage Expo Dallas”) and Japan. He has been teaching for several years now in Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Czech Republic, U.K., U.S.A., Canada and Australia. The topics Pedro teaches are vast, he usually adjusts his classes to the level of the participants – from beginner to experienced.
