Being of Irish descent, I loved the mythology of ancient Ireland and the stories of the supernatural race of Tuatha De Danann.
My favourite stories involved the War Goddess ‘The Morigan’. Her symbol is the Raven.
The logo for my martial arts school Aem Hai uses the symbol of the raven. It was chosen as so many of my highest achieving students (both personally and competitively) are female. Hence the the War Goddess seemed an appropriate symbol. Her totem, the raven, seemed a subtitle way of acknowledging this.
