I teach a Russian Martial Art called Systema and recent changed the school name from Russian Martial Art of the Rockies to Systema Colorado.
I want a clean look that incorporates Russian themes with something uniquely Colorado--unsure what though.
We use a traditional Russian Warrior logo that can be seen at http://www.russianmartialart.com. Please scan through other schools there for ideas though not repeating any of them. The warrior logo may or may not be used.
Systema students are mostly men 16 and up, so "manly" colors and design are preferred. They refuse light colors, although designs with a sense of flow would be great.
The logo should be versatile enough to be embroidered, printed, used for the web and developed into t-shirts because students were t-shirts instead of "karate uniforms" in training.
