ROPE IS EDGE PLAY!
Watching videos online will never replace time spent with a real life hands-on instructor! You simply cannot learn rope this way. It is just not safe. If you want to learn rope, especially suspensions, you should seek out multiple mentors with significant experience, and attend intensives, workshops, and conferences. We suggest learning from multiple people because there is simply not one true way to do things (aka the "one twue way") and you need to learn what is best for you. Moreover, some people are likely to teach in a way that is safer than others, so always think and make decisions that are best for you!
