Filipino Martial Arts Symbol
The Filipino Martial Arts (Kali) symbol represents the 'Katipunan's (revolutionary brotherhood) struggle for independence from Foreign invaders. The triangle represents the triangular footwork so prevalent in the art, the unity of the three major island groups (which together formed the Philippine nation), and lastly the three major cultural religious influences Christianity, Islam, and Animism. This is encompassed in a circle which symbolises associates the finite with the infinite, the linear with the circular, the physical world with the spiritual, beginning and ending with that which is constant. This infusion of opposites becomes a Philippine equivalent of the Taoist concept of yin and yang, or unity of opposites.
