Martial Art Logos section

So I've added a new section to the Karate Kid Blog, Martial Art Logos.

For quite awhile now I have kept my eyes open for good looking martial art logos. Maybe it is the artist in me but I like finding well designed logos, at the same time I cringe when I see a poorly designed logo.

So in this section I will post any logo I come across that catches my eye. I will also try to add a link to the website the logo came from as well as some relative information from that website.

Perhaps one day I will have my own school and I will design my own logo.

One can dream.

Dragon Style Kung Fu logo

Loong Ying (Dragon Style Kung Fu) is a powerful fighting system whose origins can be traced back to the Shaolin Temple in southern China. As well as being an effective self defence system, the style develops strength and flexibility in the body and mind and helps maintain a healthy well being. Classes are available in the UK in a number of locations in England and Wales.
