The Symbology of the Jidokwan Badge and Emblem
 
The symbol of Jidokwan is made up of three main parts. In the symbol, each of the three circles make within themselves a whole, with no beginning or end. Each of these symbolic circles represents different aspects to us as students of Jidokwan.
The large outer circle represents the universe holding inside all we know and all we need around us within its mighty aspect. The larger circle inside represents our earth. The smaller circle represents the life on earth.
When all three circles are placed together we see contact, one with the other.
he rose of Sharon is the Korean national flower, with eight petals. The symbol is set in the centre so these petals draw your eye to the centre, as a Mandala in Tibetan or Indian Yoga. Each petal represents an attitude. The eight is a number of balance and harmony, organisation and personal successes.
he colours of red gold and blue are each significant to the symbology of the Jidokwan emblem. Red is the colour of energy and power, courage and attention. Gold is for spirituality and freedom. Blue is for peace, calm and friendship.

Do not criticise any of the other martial arts. Speak ill of others and it will surely come back to you. The mountain does not laugh at the river because it is lowly, nor does the river speak ill of the mountain because it cannot move about
