The A.K.K.F. / American Karate Kung-Fu Federation’s emblem: What does it stand for? The emblem of the American Karate Kung-Fu Federation is a well thought out collection of timeless, natural and historical symbols. The emblem draws upon and borrows from the ancient wisdom of the past leaders of long enduring civilizations who assigned meaning to each figure.

The purpose of the emblem is to serve as a standard. It is to be regarded as a model to provide focus, guidance and direction for those in the A.K.K.F. FOLD TO PURSUE AND ACHIEVE. The triangle mirrors the shape of the ancient pyramids and is a miniature representation of the universe.

The three colors permeating the core of the triangle are reflective of specific positive character traits that are derived from and have the same meaning as the Star Spangled Banner. White intimates purity and innocence, red implies hardiness and valor, and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice.

The bald or white Spread Eagle represents a combination of the power of the ancient Sumerians, Assyrians and Romans and the strength and courage of the American people as represented by the great seal of the United States of America.

The three gold stars, located at the far corners of the triangle, denote the spiritual, mental and physical aspects of each individual. The message is clear. It is a call and appeal to individuals throughout the universe to apply and use their spiritual, mental and physical power, strength and courage in pursuit of the concepts and ideals contained in the Code of Bushido and the Star Spangled Banner.

The goal of each of our members, proudly wearing this emblem, is to inform others of who we are and for what we stand for.
