Northcoast Aikido

The Northcoast School of Aikido was founded by John Thomas Read upon his return from Japan in 1977. Read Sensei is widely recognized for his ability to teach the full variety of Aikido technique, in a concise, clear, and powerful way.

Read Sensei has taught practical technique and a complete philosophical basis for power through non-resistance for over thirty years. Read Sensei has also developed and continues to teach Aikibojitsu -- the Art of the Staff.
