The reasons for the renaming of the Japanese Society of Kinesiology to the Japanese Society of Biomechanics are explained, and the importance of the International Congress of Biomechanics, the International Society of Biomechanics, and Richard Nelson are outlined.

Miyashita (mm1192@tcn-catv.ne.jp) is with the Division of Physical and Health Education, Graduate School of Education, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.
