Read Sensei encourages his students to explore their own Aikido practice. For this reason Northcoast Aikido has a large roster of instructors, whose differing styles complement each other.
Recommended readings for detailed information about Aikido, its history, and philosophy. There is also a list of dojos in other cities for those of you who want to train while you are traveling.
From his years of teaching and studying Aikido Read Sensei has developed a unique study of the staff as a weapon and means of self examination. He has named his new study, and art, Aikibojitsu. Read Sensei has been heard to say that Aikibojitsu has its roots in the staff work of Aikido, and often references O’Sensei, Master Ueshiba, in his teaching. He teaches Aikibojitsu regularly once a week at Northcoast Aikido.
