Slovenia's first female black belt

Staša Pisek is the first female first-degree black belt in Slovenia to be recognized by Aikido World Headquarters - Hombu Dojo. Wilko Vriesman Sensei solemnly presented Staša with an official certificate from Hombu Dojo, signed by the Doshu, Moriteru Ueshiba.

This certificate is also the first dan grade issued directly to Slovenian Aikikai, thus marking another very important step towards recognition by the Hombu.
