THE STKD GOLDEN DRAGON
Explanation of the Award Design
The colour GREEN was used to signify GROWTH as per the meaning of the ITF-Taekwon-Do's GREEN Belt. Dragons are mythical beasts. In the West, it is capable of breathing Fire and in the East, it is a bringer of WATER and WEALTH.
The Elements of FIRE and WATER when used wisely, are beneficial and benevolent to mankind BUT when enraged or misused, will cause massive destruction and calamity. Dragons are also symbols of POWER. Emperors of Ancient China wears the Dragon Robe to signify that they are the sons of Heaven thus are all POWERFUL just like a practitioner who is versed in his or her Art.
The Dragon is depicted chasing The Heavenly Pearl which is said to be the most PERFECT Pearl in the Universe symbolising the Awardees pursuit of perfection in their respective Martial Art.
A Martial Arts exponent who is versed in his or her Art is powerful and should be benevolent at all times. If practiced correctly, Martial Arts will bring about PEACE and PROSPERITY however, exponents of Martial Arts who use their skills for nefarious purposes will only cause HARM to the world.
The significance of the School of Taekwon-Do SHIELD on the Award serves to remind all that firstly, Martial Arts should be practiced for "SELF DEFENSE" purposes as symbolised by the shield (please click here for a more detailed explanation) and secondly, to identify the Originator of the Dragon Award.
All TRUE Founders create their ART for the PEACE of Mankind therefore, the STKD Dragon Award seeks to honor those sites that promote their Art the Way it was meant to be practiced by their Founders.
