Akechi Denki, one of the most respected nawashi, passed away on 17th July 2005, one year ago yesterday.

One year later, our Portuguese friend Pedro who learnt shibari from Akechi sensei, took a series of photos as a one-year tribute to Akechi. Under the title “Back to the Basics”, he hopes to relive the techniques of Akechi sensei. Pedro chose this particular date to send us the photos, so that people do not forget about Akechi, his love to rope, and his teachings.
