About Our Emblem

Jikishinkan Aikido Dojo Emblem

The Jikishinkan Emblem: a combination of bamboo and plum blossom.

Bamboo, being a determined, straight growing plant, means “direct and honest”.

Plum blossom, being a flower that flourishes vibrantly in the dead of winter, means “strength of mind”.

Now, try to find the four principles and the eight directions. Both in the emblem, and in your practice.
