About KOBIDO Apprentice Training with The 26th Generation Master of Kobido


Greeting From the 26th Generation Master of Kobido Lineage




KOBIDO’s philosophy is that ultimate beauty comes from perfect balance of physical, emotional, and spiritual health. KOBIDO achieves excellence combining techniques refined over centuries with the finest available products to create superior care for the face and body. KOBIDO simply provides the best skin care without compromise. Our primary belief is that beauty is a reflection of ones total health. Therefore, KOBIDO treatments are designed to optimize our health and enhance our beauty.


Since the 15th century in Japan the KOBIDO art lineage has existed as an exclusive treatment for the Imperial family and the very wealthy. In fact the average Japanese citizen has probably never experienced or even heard of KOBIDO. To this day the KOBIDO clinic in Japan has remained exclusive to the Japanese elite. The KOBIDO tradition itself is an art lineage rather than a family lineage. This means that the KOBIDO tradition is passed from master to student without restriction due to bloodlines. In 2005, Master, Ito, after serving as head of the KOBIDO lineage for over 50 years, appointed


Shogo Mochizuki his successor to the 26th Master of the KOBIDO art form. Dr. Shogo Mochizuki has been in the KOBIDO organization since 1977, and is one of three KOBIDO appointed instructors under master Ito.


Our mission is to impart the techniques, culture, and philosophy of the KOBIDO tradition, to the future generations of the world. We intend to bring the Japanese/Eastern way of healing and esthetics to the spa industry while maintaining our quality, integrity, and exclusivity. The KOBIDO techniques and products are the finest of Japan and perhaps the finest in the world.

Dr. Shogo Mochizuki

The KOBIDO training program is broken down into multiple levels. Starting with the most basic and fundamental techniques and moving on to advanced maneuvers and combining techniques into seamless facial treatments.


Packages include; Full-color textbooks, DVDs, a practice mannequin, skincare products, and more.


Each training package contains everything you need to self-study and prepare for certification. Because KOBIDO official training is based around self-study, it means that each student can learn at their own pace and arrange for exams and certification when they are confident in their abilities.


Completing each level and passing the exams rewards each apprentice with certification and a final diploma.


Certification exams, 1-on-1 online training sessions, and special lessons from Dr. Shogo Mochizuki are only available to apprentices with an active KOBIDO membership. Please visit our ‘Apprenticeship, Certification, and Training’ page for more details.

KOBIDO Level 1 and 2 completed at European Intensive training Spring 2016, Barcelona, Spain.
