Beginners through advanced practitioners are welcome at Portsmouth Aikido. If you've never practiced with us, you can try a class for free. Please contact us and sign a registration and release form if you'd like to get on the mat. You are welcome to come observe a class at any time.
One way to begin your practice is to join an adult beginners course, which we offer quarterly throughout the year. Each course lasts six weeks and meets Sundays from 3:00 - 4:00 pm. The goal of the beginners course is to give participants a chance to experience Aikido first-hand and provide them the skills needed to continue in the general classes. The cost is $95 per person, which includes a uniform, and anyone ages 12 or older is welcome. For younger students, learn more about our kids program.
If you already have experience or you'd like to jump right in, new students may also join as members and train whenever they like. If at any point the techniques or ukemi (rolls and falls) go beyond a student's ability, the teacher will have him/her practice basics separately. If you have questions or would like to get started, contact us by phone or using the form at the bottom of the page.
