• These are two example certificates that are art in addition to being a certificate. I am hoping to see symbolism without trying to hard. Outside the box / without screaming asian / martial / - yet thought provoking,

  • About #19 Dear, Contest Holder, Martial art resembles a tree with many branches. Imagine a tree with deep roots that provides the fruits of knowledge, patience and a natural harmony. It takes many years to harvest a fruit from a tree; you’d have to plant it, water it, fertilize it, treat it with disinfectants, prune it, and finally enjoy the work of your efforts. As a Judo referee, I envisioned the ideals and practice of martial arts as; one that takes years to grow and takes years to develop in body as well as spirit. I am also working on several other concepts that touches your key points. Kind regards Elvis,

  • For everyone looking at this - think of it as a piece of art - speaks to life (courage, perseverance, indomitable spirit, courtesy, integrity, self control. Think of putting forth great effort over a long period of time with total focus to reach a high state of physical health, spiritual awareness, emotional strength. What does that look like to you? Whatever that picture is that is what I would like to see on this certificate. The words life art peace - not as key as the image of life art peace and the qualities mentioned above. I hope that helps everyone looking at this. I am excited to see how you interpret this concept.
