Kinomichi* - Martial Arts Style

Kinomichi is a martial arts style that originated in France. It was developed by Masamichi Noro in 1979. Masamichi Noro was one of the students of Morihei Ueshiba (the founder of Aikido).

While similar to Aikido, most Kinomichi practitioners see Kinomichi as a separate martial arts style. Kinomichi is softer and possibly even more graceful than Aikido. According to the Kinomichi International Instructors Association, "Kinomichi integrates notions of spirals, contact, union and harmony using approach techniques and forms".

Kinomichi students practice unarmed techniques as well as techniques that utilize martial arts weapons such as Jo and Bokken. Kinomichi has seven levels of studies called "Initiations".

This martial arts is growing in France and is spreading to other parts of Europe. It is not yet well known in other countries such as the United States.
