Need Unique Logo for New Karate School

I received many creative and inspirational designs! My only complaint would be that I loved a few designs and the artists had not submitted original work; therefore they were removed from the contest. I completely understand why this occurred but nonetheless was disappointed to see some removed. The designer that won our contest was professional and easy to work with. Thank you!

Project description

ABOUT OUR COMPANY: Ripple Effect Martial Arts is a new Karate School offering self-defense lessons to children and adults. Our name stems from the idea that small changes in one's life can make great impacts in the world around you. We emphasize modesty, integrity, respect, accountability, compassion, and perserverance in addition to clean, traditional self-defense techniques. DESIGN REQUEST: We are looking for an impactful and memorable logo for signage, print, and web. We lean towards modern designs using abstract images-- perhaps an individual kicking. Although we want our logo to stand apart from those that exist already. Most of the karate/martial arts logos are very similar. We are looking for a simple, dynamic design. Please play around with ripples and water (as implied in the name). WE HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A DESIGN THAT STARTS WITH A KICK, CREATING A RIPPLE AND TURNING INTO A WAVE. TITLE MUST BE PROMINENT. If you choose to use Asian text, please avoid Chinese.... Our style is Korean-based. Japanese would also be appropriate. We are looking to see the colors Black, Dusty Blue, and Grey incorporated. I would like to see the following Asian style fonts incorporated in your designs: Japanese Brush Kudasai Flat Brush Italic IGNITE THE LIGHT, LOGOBLOQO 2. Looking to see some curve/motion to the font. We are very eager to see what you come up with... **In an effort to find the most original and unique design, we have made this contest blind. Thank you in advance for your time and creativity.
