Association logo is a fist inside a red circle on the white gi background to represent the Japanese flag.
Dojo logo is a Japanese torii (gateway) and a red circle for the Japanese flag. Kanji at left reads 'Karate' and at right 'Judo'.
Senior members wear the back patch, with a fist and two dragon/tigers head-to-tail in the form of yin and yang. The kanji at top reads 'chikara' (power; might), and the bottom reads 'Japan Karate-do Kenkojuku', which we wear to honor our roots.
We were originally members of Kenkojuku Association, under the direction of Toyotaro Miyazaki in the U.S.A. and Tomosaburo Okano (1922-2003) in Japan. The logo has two pine needles (sho) spread open with the kanji 'ken' (modest, or humble) on a Japanese flag.
