Black Arts Society

Newsletter

July 15th 1998

Here it is at last! The next long awaited edition of the newsletter.

"The Black Arts emblem itself holds a specific significance; The eagle represents the offensive side of the art, whereas the shield depicts the defensive side of the art. If the shield is penetrated then the eagle is unleashed. The dagger signifies the military origin and how it originated from the Special Service Force Unarmed Combat Team. The sunrays signify the multitude of styles emanating from the Black Arts style and the wreath represents that these styles are held together under one entity."


This newsletter is dedicated to our Military Instructors worldwide.
