Kai Shin Kai - formerly called `Yamarashi` - was founded in the 1960`s by Mike Smith who was awarded his Nidan by Tielemans Sensei of Belgium. Shortly thereafter, Mike affiliated KSK to the British Aikido Association as a traditional group autonomous to, but working closely with the Tomiki-Kai. The BAA is recognised by the Japan Aikido Association - which later ratified future Dan promotions within the KSK. In 1994 the KSK left the BAA to establish itself as a separate school recognised by the BAB. Mike Smith resigned from the KSK in December 02 to reform his own group in the BAA. Bill Harris (7th Dan) is presently the KSK Chief Instructor/Chief Examiner, Vincent Sumpter (6th Dan) is the Technical Advisor and Nigel Vaughan (5th Dan) is the KSK deputy Chief Instructor.

KSK practices traditional Aikido in the manner of Hombu Dojo (Tokyo), where senior Shihan all have distinctive styles but nevertheless all follow the path of starting as a triangle, moving as a circle and finishing as a square (posture, movement and stability). That is, the KSK recognises that there are many ways of expressing both basic and advanced Aikido, none being incorrect as long as the tenets of Aikido as taught by O-Sensei are followed.
