Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a small Filipino martial arts organization focused on spreading the art and training with each other. Filipino Martial arts is also known as Kali, and more specifically we train a specific style of Kali known as Pekiti Tirisia Kali. PTK Kali focuses on the use of weapons (Knives, Rattan Sticks, Swords ,(Ginunting swords), Balisong Knives, as well as empty hand fighting. This is a combat oriented system, as opposed to sport focused style. Kali has a long history in the Philippines that dates back to before the Spanish conquest, but in its modern form is street survival art. We are targeting people of all ages, men and women, that want to learn an art while learning to defend yourself against a weapon attack. We have more of an underground feel, as the art is not very commercial at this point like more popular arts like Krav Maga. Historically the art was secretly handed down from father to son in the Philippines as they trained in a backyard, so it was nothing fancy.. When we train we are holding a knife, a stick, 2 knives, 2 sticks, one sword, two swords, or just empty hands. Footwork is very important to us, and we use a triangle as a template for stepping and attacking, so triangle imagery is good. Circles are also good.

Super clean and modern
Use of an animal that doesn't look cheesy
Like the X and the clean look. The X is like two rattan sticks
Maybe the pitbull image could be abstract like this
Simple and clean!
Triangle imagery is good for the kali logo
We have an actual pitbull in our current logo, but looks a little cheesy. We are open to an actual pitbull image or not depending on the look. Also don't want it to look so intense that it turns off women or people not looking for something so hardcore. Looking to modernize an ancient art. Would prefer to be simplistic and not too busy
