Our Symbol

In its shape, the symbol describes the harmony between the "hard" and "soft" in nature. The external circle refers to the infinite space that surrounds us, and as such, symbolizes the "JU"("SOFT").

The Japanese sign in the center means tree (ki). As such, it represents nature, and symbolizes both "GO" (" HARD") and "JU". The tree in its essence combines both hard and soft. It represents growth capability and future renewal. Also, its deep roots derive their vitality from the soil representing the past, the foundation and the tradition, which we cannot live without.

The symbol describes "DENTO OKINAWA GOJU RYU KARATE", a harmonized combination between "GO" and "JU", protecting the tradition while inquiring about the future.
