Well hopefully this image will load... I've updated my logo from what I previously posted. I'm most definately going to use this exact logo except maybe make the guy a little bigger.

The triangle represents Mind, Body, Spirit in one, the five components that make up the center of the triangle represent the 5 rules of the school. The 4 white stripes represent 4 of the 5 animals of the school. The white border around the triangle represents the fifth animal the dragon which encompases all the animals. The guy doing the kick is from a pic of me so that represents me.

So let me know what you think of the new update and let me know why you do or don't like it.

Pete

I like it! The red border really brings the image together (both graphically and philosophically).

Better I would take out the white in the triange between the two black, and two red as well as between the black and red, but keep the white and red border

I concur. The white is distracting. Please consider putting a black border between the red blocks and red dividing the black. OR narrow the spacing on the horizontal lines to streamline the whole thing...

I put a white border around the guy in the middle which makes him stand out more than the last version. I tried it a few other ways and didn't like it as much. I did one without the white lines but it didn't look too good.

It looks great! I want to set up my own Martial Arts acedemy when I'm older. I think the kick of the person you put on the cover looks a bit strange. Maybe a flying kick with one of the lesgs tucked in, coz it looks a bit like a hurdle jump to me. But apart from that excellent!

The kick is a jump scissor kick. I'm glad the general consensus is positive. I may change things a bit but this is for the most part the way it will look.

Thanks... So far almost everyone likes it. That is def. a good sign. I'm going to make the guy a little bigger but I think that is all.
