Symbols & Characters

The tiger is symbolic of the physical world and the dragon signifies the mental or spiritual world. Together they represent a harmony between the two worlds. The Chinese symbol Yin/Yang (Oom Yung) in the background stands for the balance of life.


The right hand is a reminder to accept a good or right challenge in life. The two swords stand for the Chinese symbol for balance and harmony: Yin/Yang (Oom Yung).


The Half-Moon trim found on uniforms for higher belts stands for peace.


The Original Oom Yung patch found on uniforms for higher belts represents balance and harmony.
