These are the original CCFB designs created by Angelos Fasois for the system needs.
Birth of CCFB logo
I created the symbol (on the right) at the house of my lifetime partner and friend Mark Cook, around 1998, during my years in UK. That time I needed a symbol to represent me and the system's potential. It took me about 6 hours to design it on a piece of A4 paper and the result was this amazing symbol!
Later on I add the circle and the triangle. The circle is an ancient symbol and symbolises the unity, the wholeness and the infinity. It represents the "whole" and the ever-ending loop of knowledge, development, research and evolution. That's where the main idea of the system was based.
The triangle is one of the strongest geometrical structures and stands for strength. Many training halls incorporate the triangle into their logo. It represents numerous underlying philosophical, theoretical and metaphysical principles in the Filipino martial arts. Applications of the triangle are found in defensive and offensive tactical strategies, including footwork, stances, blocking and disarms. It also symbolizes the "triangle clan" of the Shaolin temple, hence the blend of Chinese and Filipino styles.
The Eagle represents the style of Eagle Claw Kung Fu I have been practicing for several years. The Dragon is a generic style that represents Kung Fu itself. These two animals have something in common: Powerful CLAWS! This is why pressure points is a very important aspect of my teachings. Both animals are predators, like the nature and philosophy of my system.
The symbolism of the "tigers with karambits"
The fact that it is double, symbolizes both the left and the right side, which must be harmonized and equally practiced. The tiger is the "state of mind" we must have in a fight. And the karambit is my favourite lethal weapon!
