our logo; the zen-ken/seiken

The ZEN-KEN/SEIKEN; The logo is a very important symbol to our organization. It is worn on the left sleeve of the members. The symbol represents what our karate has become today.

#1 The GLOBE represents that martial arts is for everyone, without bias in the world of Budo. #2 The SEIKEN (Fist) thrusts forward, representing an empty hand prepared for battle in the fight for justice. Each finger of the fist represents the five disciplines that embody the Seireishin karate system (Kyokushin, Oyama, Seido, Shotokan, and Judo). #3 The GLOBE & Seiken are enclosed by the “ENZO” (Zen circle), symbolizing continuity of movement and mind. The ENZO is a also a symbol of yielding to the Fist, a reminder to the practitioner to keep from misguided actions through the martial arts. #4 The KANJI that is on the sides of the symbol says "LION", this is the spirit of Kancho-Shihan Padron, the founder of our discipline.
