V-MAT / Veterans Martial Arts Training is a New Hampshire based 501C3 non-profit organization with the mission of assisting Military Veterans, Reserves and Active Duty personnel at no cost. The V-MAT lineage is directly connected to the USMC, who brought our particular Martial Art back from Okinawa in the 1950’s.
The V-MAT Instructors are well rounded in the history, culture, philosophy, behavior and discipline that
the Martial Arts offer. These elements help build skills to manage the stresses of challenging situations, and to regain physical, mental, and spiritual balance that apply to daily life. V-MAT teaches all levels of health and compromised health including amputees, TBI and PTSD. V-MAT also instructs situational awareness, confrontation, self-defense and weapons disarming techniques to the US Military - as well as corporate and private groups.
“What an amazing group of intelligent, kind, yet deadly instructors.” - SFC Ryan LaPoint, US Army
