The logo of the Red Aikido Aikikai, A.C. (Aikido Aikikai Network) comes from the Mixteca culture heritage of Mexico, where the main insignia is the Yanhuitlán Pectoral (known as Chimalli), which has a great symbolic value as it represents a military shield that links two fretwokrs – gold and turquoise – symbolically jointing together war, sun, and water.* This is the origin of the idea to link symbolically two cultures, such the Mexican and the Japanese through Aikido as the way of balance and harmony of human being with dialy practice.
This logo of the Red Aikido AIkikai, A.C. (Aikido Aikikai Network) joins together the Aikido in Mexico through its both promotion and practice of quality improvement.
