The theme is based off of over 10 years of studying traditional Tae Kwon Do. My Grand Master was from South Korea which sets the theme. The flowers are South Korea's national flower, the mugunghwa, while the tiger represents an old children's story. The story began with: back when tigers smoked long bamboo pipes and conversed with magpies. The magpie is on my shoulder opposite of the tiger and my Grand Master's name is carved into the pipe.
