Aikikai Serbia and Aikikai Hombu dojo

In early 2009, the Serbian Aikido Federation - Aikikai Serbia has been given Hombu Recognition. In addition to the rights that has brought us, this award has shown that Hombu dojo believe that we will be worthy to continue to spread aikido in spirit and in accordance with the idea of Morihei Ueshiba.

From March 2012 Aikido Federation of Serbia - Aikikai Serbia is transformed into the "Society for the traditional Japanese culture - Aikikai Serbia". The new name and focus on the idea that aikido represents a derivative of the rich Japanese culture and martial art and not sport, was one of the main motives for this small in name but in fact a big change.
