General Information Realnog aikidoa is a Serbian martial art created Ljubomir Vračarević who strongly based it on aikido. For the most part it follows the curriculum of aikido, as well as its grading system. Real aikido is not a competitive sport, but a coloured belt system is used to acknowledge progress. (IRAF, s.d.). Techniques from judo and jiu-jitsu are also included, and –according to the International Aikido Federation- the art is close to the mentality and tradition of the Balkan.
The close similarities with aikido, in both technique and name, have led to criticism from the aikido- and martial arts communities (Crudelli, 2010).
History/Development After studying aikido and becoming a master in 1971, founder Ljubomir Vračarević created realnog aikidoa (IRAF, s.d.). The International Real Aikido Federation, founded by Igor Petrović, aims to perfect and upgrade the techniques of real aikdo (IRAF, s.d.).
