Frank T. Khani (born 1969) studied philosophy, German philology and economics; for his Master’s degree he wrote his thesis on “Prejudices”. Frank has been practicing various martial arts since 1984 (incl. karate, jiu-jitsu and WingTsun since 1991). He is a self-defence teacher and runs his own martial arts school.

His experience in the area of martial arts and self-defense and his passion for playful fighting came together in 2005. Since then Frank has held numerous workshops, both in Germany (e.g. at Schwelle7, Zentrum für sexuelle Bildung, Zwischenräume, Haus der Kulturen der Welt) and internationally (England, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Finland, Poland, Spain, Italy), primarily on play fighting and rough body play – he developed his own and unique approach to these disciplines. Frank has about 20 years of practical experience with BDSM.

Rough Body Play (Kinky Kung Fu) - together with Sheila Crux

To Play Resistance and OverpoweringFrankWS-Rough Body Play 1

Subjugation scenarios are among the most widespread and elementary erotic fantasies – many of us have known them since our youth. Yet only few of us act on them and create real-life scenarios where our partner’s playful resistance is overcome in a sensual manner. The primary reason generally is an uncertainty about how to realise such scenarios safely and consensually.

Subjugation games are a form of Rough Body Play. RBP is a very direct physical manifestation of BDSM. It encompasses everything from joyful scuffles to intense existential sessions. Its focus is less on tools and toys but rather on direct physical contact through physical dominance or stylized confrontation between a “top” and a “bottom” (this discriminates it from play fighting where there normally are no such roles). Despite its obvious physical aspect, Rough Body Play also features a strong psychological component.

FrankWS-Rough Body Play 4 In their concept, Frank and Sheila blend elements of martial arts, play fighting, and BDSM; Felix Ruckert’s Resistance Play is also an inspiration. Topics will include: observing and maintaining boundaries, the use of body language, playing with physical “assault”, forms of resistance, strong to painful holds and grappling, controlled use of the fist, using one’s body weight.

The workshop is intended not just for experienced BDSM players of all genders who are interested in carnal scenarios, but also for those who are seeking to take a first step towards BDSM (the focus on one’s body and feelings rather than on tools can be helpful here). And it further addresses anyone who, regardless of BDSM, enjoys these kinds of games.

We welcome couples of any kind and single people of any gender. Previous experience with martial arts or an above average level of fitness is not required, but please be sure to meet the basic health requirements for engaging in sports and physical activity. To those who may find the topic confrontational (e.g., those who may unfortunately have had to experience real violence) we would however politely suggest to refrain from participation (please ask us if unsure).

Interrogation Play

More Than Getting AnswersFrankWS-Interrogation

When we play with interrogation, it can of course be all about getting the desired information. But then again, if we don’t go directly for “the secret”, who knows what other interesting things we might discover instead? If you think about it, interrogation play between consenting play partners doesn’t have to be about getting any particular answers at all. It is basically a setting that allows us to experiment and experience – most of all power vs. powerlessness. Wanting to discover the secret is an idea that gives shape to the setting, not a goal we actually have to reach.

So how do we create an interrogation scenario? We will experiment with various settings. What topics can we talk about? What types of questions are best suited to making someone feel uneasy? We’ll introduce techniques to build up pressure or to confuse. We will also find out about the physical side of an interrogation scenario: body language, body positions, and physical contact.

Please bring a bag with a few personal items to this workshop (for instance a handbag).
