    Default What's the symbol of your academies logo and what is it's meaning?

    Also how did some of the older logos come to be? Like the triangle on barra and the bulldogs on carlsons? Whats behind that Tasmanian devil i see on some gis?

    I think the snarling bulldogs with blood around their teeth is fairly self explanatory.

    I think this is where the triangle idea originated
    ''fren, purple must smash people. SMASH THEM.
    that is hequirement for purple
    purple belt dangerus man
    if purple belt cannot smash he not real purple'' Creonte

    The triangle is actually an illuminati symbol of skullduggery and mind control. As is the all seeing eye.

    Default The Bulldogs

    I am by no means an expert of Carlson Gracie history. However, I believe the bulldogs derive from the brazilian tradition of dog fighting. Dog's were judged and prized on their 'gameness'. How much fight or 'game' did they have? When they were backed in a corner would they capitulate or just go all out. I think that is where the maxim "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog" comes from. I think this very much reflects the Carlson way.

    What this guy said.

    I think our logo/website needs a little (how to put this diplomatically?!) attention. Others might not agree but a good simple site and branding sticks in one's mind and catches attention, particularly if you're interested in attracting new members.

    The standard GB logo is simple but I have no idea what it's meaning is.

    2 bulldogs squaring off with blood in their mouths to me, signals very clearly what this club is about.

    here is the GB symbol, i think the meaning has been lost somewhere in the mists of time though, maybe we'll never understand what it's original meaning was?

    Nihilist, if you are talking about the Carlson logo,it will be changed over my dead body.While there is still blood pumping through my heart and veins the bulldogs are staying.Those bulldogs are part of who we are as a team and if you want a modern corporate image you can piss off and train somewhere else.

    Best Regards
