Jeremy Wheeler, 4th dan

A lifelong student of movement and stillness, Jeremy began training in Aikido in 1998 under Jiro Oshi and Kyoko Naguchi (then students of Takanari Higuchi Sensei of Kyoto, Japan). He began studying Aikido and Aikibojitsu under Tom Read Sensei in 1999, who appointed him to Northcoast Aikido’s teaching staff in 2005. Jeremy has also served as the Board President of the nonprofit Northcoast Aikido Foundation since February 2011.

Over the years, Jeremy has augmented his studies with a number of other teachers, not least of which are the wild landscapes he has been lucky enough to live in and travel through.
