What does the logo mean?



The logo has a powerful meaning, it encapsulates my journey of 40 years pursuing self-perfection.

It has become my mission to share my knowledge and experience to help people reach their goals.

I have always felt my success is in their success, when they achieve I achieve.

This philosophy can be applied to shape your own destiny by taking the core principles.

The soul of the logo is of freedom, justness and truth. The root foundation and a blueprint.

What you see in the logo is a reflection of your “future self” in pursuit of self-perfection.

The Logo Meaning


The Japanese Calligraphy

.

White represents a new beginning in your life, like a new page for a new chapter.


The karate calligraphy represents the essential attributes you must acquire: Discipline, determination and patience.

These essential attributes are acquired through practice.

This is the mindset that will help you accomplish your goals throughout your life.

This practice can be of any skill, not just martial arts.

Remember, what you practice gets stronger.

The Teardrop

.

The colour red represents you, your blood, sweat and tears. All your hopes and endeavours.

Black is the void, the emptiness that is full of potential, waiting to be shaped by reality, you are that reality. Position yourself in an environment that will excel and enhance your efforts.


Here the teardrop shape has taken a form that can utilise it’s environment, drawing in and harnessing the potential from the void. In others words "being like water, soft yet hard, flowing and adaptable."


It has carved out an existence of balance, harmony and a state of flow. Running water never gets stale.

Changing its form, changes its characteristics, and in effect changes its destiny.

The Journey

.

Dismantle into

.

The circle repesents a great journey.

The colour red in the circle represents emotion, emotion is a powerful force. Learn how to use it and it will take you far and beyond.

The circle is made of anchors.

Throughout your journey, there will be times when you need to let go of some things and hold onto to other things. You need to be decisive, otherwise they will slow you down or even sink you.

When you embark on a great journey, it is never going to be easy. Taking the first step is always the hardest. There are going to be many challenges and obstacles in the your path.

Learn to dismantle complexity into simplicity, bit by bit, edging forward, step by step. Simplicity is the key.


Believe in yourself, let truth and intuition be your guiding light, use them to clear the path, then the direction becomes obvious.

Maintain the balance between your heart and mind, be fair to yourself and others.

Show humility and kindness because they have the power to open doors that have never been opened before.

This is the true essence of ALL martial arts.

This is the “WAY”.

.

The white text represents the student mentality, a tenacious learner with an open heart and an open mind, NEVER fearing failure.

TMA Combat Fitness is just a vehicle for your journey. The trainer is only a guide, YOU are the master of yourself and the carver of your own destiny.

Now that you understand, remember knowledge is only half good, the other half is application, use them together to set the wheels of progress into motion.

Shape and apply this knowledge to access your potential.

Yesterday is gone, tomorrow never comes. NOW is the time to carve your shape!

To become the best version of yourself, you must keep evolving, broadening your horizons through new experiences, engaging all your senses, bringing them together as one.

Life throws many obstacles in our path, but it is our "will" that finds a way to overcome them all.
