Portsmouth Aikikai is a not-for-profit Aikido dojo that aims to promote the principles of Aikido passed on by the Founder. We practice the Aikikai style of Aikido, following the teachings of Morihei Ueshiba, O’ Sensei, and promoted by his son, grandson and many of O’ Sensei‚Äôs top students.

Aikido is a powerful and dynamic self-defensive and non-competitive Japanese martial art. Its techniques aim to blend with the attackers’ energy and use it to control or throw them. The practice of Aikido not only provides you with a rich repertoire of effective self-defence techniques and physical training but also offers you a path for mental and spiritual development.

We practice in a friendly and respectful environment and welcome whoever is interested in learning this wonderful martial art. At the moment we only hold classes for adults.

Come along and give it a go! We look forward to seeing you on the mat!

Training times:

Wednesdays 18:00 – 19:30

Fridays 18:00 – 19:00

Priory Sports Centre, Fawcett Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO4 ODL

  1. Good Evening,
    I am interested to learn karate and was looking for a training school. I have found you online and quite impressed by what you doing. Is there any chance of me joining with you please? If it is then can you please let me know with details about what I need to do prior to this please?

    Kind regards,


  2. Hi,

    I live in Liss (Hampshire) and I’m looking for an Aikido dojo not to far from home. I’m shodan and mostly trained in France and London in the past few years (before the lockdown).

    Would that be ok for me to visit you this coming Friday?

    Kind regards

  3. Hi Olivier, you may come visit us whenever you want. See you soon. Dominique.
