Tiger Logo

The tiger was painted by the great Japanese artist, Hoan Kosugi, to honor Master Funakoshi who used it on the cover of his first book to symbolize strength and courage. The irregularity of the circle indicates that it was probably painted with one brush stroke. The characters by the tiger's tail denote the name of the artist.
