Dojo emblem

Koinobori dojo emblem is an ancient Japanese coat of arms (kamon), which is based on an image of a carp fighting a raging current. In the East the carp symbolizes masculine prowess, endurance, and persistence.

The annual battle between the carp and the current in its striving to reach the spawning ground (in Chinese legends it even climbs waterfalls and then turns into a Dragon) symbolizes the growth of energy and health.
