The Symbolism Behind the Logo

A triangle is the strongest geometrical shape because you cannot change its shape without changing the lengths of at least one of its sides. In Goju Ryu karate, which I have studied since September 1996, we use the points of the triangle to symbolize the three aspects of ourselves -- ken, zen, and tamashi (mind, body, and spirit) -- that form the foundation for our lives. With the AM logo I have attempted to apply similar symbolism, in this case the points of the triangle represent the three foundational aspects of AM: its values, principles, and practices.
