Tammad Rimilia - Gentleman Barbarian (1958-2000)

by Tatu


Tammd Rimillia was probably the person most responsible for inspiring rope bondage inspired by the Japanese style in the US and perhaps the entire west.

He tragically died in an automobile accident on November 20, 2000 in Maryland.

I never had the opportunity to meet him personally, but his was one of the first and only websites showing "how to tie" techniques on the web. It was his site and tragic death that inspired me to expand my website offerings on rope bondage as there were only one or two others out there at the time.

Many say that he had a captivating personality. He described himself as "The Gentleman Barbarian", affirming his kind, considerate and honorable demeanor.

He was a teacher of rope who gave to the community with his workshops.

As for his worldview he stated himself,

"I've broken away from organized religion, which tends to be too political and insufficiently spiritual. I believe in God, and the origin of my faith is the beauty and order that I see in the universe at all scales. I look through a telescope and see vast expanses of beauty, I look through an electron microscope and see sweeping beautiful vistas, and when I look at the world around me with unaided eye I see beauty everywhere I look. I take this as evidence that there is a God who created all this beauty". 1

He is greatly missed.
