THE JI DO KWAN SYMBOL

The origin of Ji Do Kwan can be traced back to one of 8 major schools of Taekwondo in Korea. Ji Do Kwan distinguished itself from other schools by their sparring abilities.  The movements of Ji Do Kwan are more fluid than other styles that emphasize more rigid actions.

The Ji Do Kwan symbol consists of 3 circles. A circle represents wholeness, since there is no beginning and end. The large outer circle represents the universe. Within the outer circle, the larger circle represents Earth and the smaller circle represents life on earth. All of these circles are interconnected.

The Ji Do Kwan symbol  outer edge is represented by a flower with eight petals. It is unknown which flower is represented, but each petal points to the center. Each petal represents on of the "Eight Manners of Solemnity."  The number eight is also symbolic of balance and harmony, organization and personal success.

The colors red and blue have significance to the meaning of the Ji Do Kwan symbol. Red is the color of energy and power, courage and attention. Blue is for peace, calm and friendship. Placed together they create balance and harmony.
