In the middle of July 2018 the president and the secretary of International aikido federation of Serbia, Kei Izawa and Wilko Vriesman, visited Serbia for the first time in order to learn more about organizational problems in Serbia on our way to becoming an IAF member.

During their stay a fee – free aikido seminar was organized for all instructors in Serbia (regardless of their affiliation to the federation/union), headlined “Friendship through keiko” and held by Kei Izawa 6th DAN.

Till today, the National Aikido Federation of Serbia has achieved to unite two organizations under its roof (Aikido association of Serbia and Serbian aikido federation), as well as numerous independent clubs.
