Kino (from "kinesthetics") is touching. In general, mammals like to be touched, and females in particular usually really like it. There are two types of kino associated with pickup, social and sexual. Social kino is touching without immediate sexual intent, and works to let people feel familiar with each other.
Social kino allows much easier transition to sexual kino. Once a woman who is attracted to you is comfortable with you socially touching her in public, she will be much more comfortable with you touching her sexually in private. Females have different levels of comfort with being touched by unknown males. Some females are comfortable being touched a lot by men they do not know well, some are uncomfortable being touched a little by men they do know well. In all cases related to pickup, kino can be used to generate, measure and maintain attraction.
For example, an outgoing female who socially calibrated may well initiate kino on her own. This will often be an indicator of interest (IOI). However, the majority of females do not initiate kino in social interactions, requiring the male to take the lead. Shy, stand-offish females may require gentle, more nuanced escalation.
Once you start applying kino, work the girl through the following stages.
1. Initial social kino: girl may show discomfort, won't reciprocate. Be playful. Use push-pull, maintain frame that you are very comfortable socially touching women. If you can't get past this stage, she is either (a) not attracted to you enough, (b) has deeper problems than you probably want to know about, or (c) both a and b.
2. Social kino, girl becomes comfortable, will not reciprocate. This is progress. Keep applying social kino frequently, do not escalate to sexual kino.
3. Social kino, girl is not reciprocating, but starts to "present" herself as open to being touched. This is a key step that hasn't been discussed on mASF. Kino techniques seem to go from 1 or 2 to 4, without recognizing that some women will have this step 3. You are now pretty much in. She likes the touching, she wants you to touch her, and she will use her body language» to communicate when, where and how she wants to be touched. Her lack of reciprocation may indicate nothing more than she doesn't know how to reciprocate social kino. If she is naturally "standoffish" in public, this is almost certainly the case. A key point: if you are isolated, and she is "presenting", you may be able to start sexual kino at this stage, without waiting for her to reciprocate social kino.
4. Social kino, girl is reciprocating. Now is when to start escalating to more sexual kino. Wash, rinse, repeat the above for sexual kino, steps are same.
Breaking it down into stages: 1. You initiate, she is neutral or slightly resistant. 2. You calibrate and continually apply, she starts to accept. 3. She starts to "present" you with kino opportunities, accepts kino readily. 4. She returns kino. 5. Escalation: wash rinse repeat sexually.
Remember that these stages are flexible, and to calibrate to the woman in front of you. Shyer women may require a considerable amount of effort at each stage, shile outgoing women may give you a warm hug when you first meet her.
When a woman escalates kino, match and raise immediately. Example: she puts your hand on her tits while still wearing her shirt. You are moving too slowly, so make your next move (in this case you might stick your hands down the back of her pants to rub her ass).

Upper Arm Grab
This comes from a post by finalD on ASF (need link). Grabbing a women firmly by her upper arm will cause 1 of 2 reactions: A. If she is sufficiently attracted to you, her entire body will respond submissively. B. If she is not attracted or is otherwise frightened for some reason, she may very well resist or fight.
finalD posits that the submissive response is an evolutionary influenced behavior causing changes in posture and EC in the woman.
Consider this an advanced technique. Be very careful trying it on some random chick. In the US, simply touching another person is grounds for a battery charge, and this kind of forceful kino would be considered very threatening to a woman who was either not attracted to the person, or even frightened by the person.
