Portsmouth Aikido offers free Aikido classes for veterans, uniformed services personnel and first responders. The classes follow a peer-to-peer model focusing on stress reduction, non-violent conflict resolution, and Aikido techniques for self-mastery. The program began with the guidance and encouragement of a dear friend Tom Osborn, founder of KNSA Aikido, who dedicated his life to using the art to help those who have served our community and our country. Classes are held the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 10:30am-noon at Portsmouth Aikido. Participants should wear comfortable clothing, or the dojo is happy to provide you with your own martial arts uniform. For more information contact Portsmouth Aikido at portsmouthaikido.org.
