The clenched fist design known as the Karate school insignia of the Karate-Do Goju-Kai. The Emblem was designed by the late Gogen Yamaguchi in 1932, the founder of Karate-Do Goju-Kai.
Unfortunately, the emblem which legally belongs to the Yamaguchi family and which is recognized worldwide is also used by other Goju-Ryu organizations. Although the fist is optically modified one recognizes easily the original logo of the Karate-Do Goju-Kai.
The original fist with the globe and the laurels is used as the emblem of the International Karate-Do Goju-Kai Association.
The European block of the International Karate-Do Gojukai Association uses the original fist with the laurels and the Kanji “Karate-Do Goju-Kai “.
