Breath of Wind ( (かぜ) () (きゅう) Kaze no Kokyū?) is one of the five Breath Styles derived directly from the Breath of the Sun. The Breath Style was originally developed & taught by Yoriichi Tsugikuni to an unknown student, who could not master the Breath of the Sun and was instead trained in a specific alternative breath style to better suit his student's specific strengths and weaknesses eventually becoming an independent breath all together. The same is applicable for the other main Branch Breath Styles.[1]

The Breath of the Beast, despite being independently developed by Inosuke Hashibira, is a derivative of the Breath of Wind, so it can be assumed that both styles use an enhanced sense of touch in their techniques.

The Breath of Mist is also noted to have been originally a derivative of the Breath of Wind.
