WHY A BULL?
RAW MVMT incorporates a bull with a geometric design aspect as the foundation for our logo. Why a bull? This symbol is a perfect representation of everything that we believe and perfectly summarizes the spirit that we want to foster within our training. According to Native people, the bull is a symbol of abundance and manifestation. This symbol promotes pushing through fear and the willingness to meet a challenge head on. People who identify with the bull are social creatures who work well in teams, but also have strong personal determination. They can be stubborn and insistent, but only because of their intense drive. Those that believe in spirit animals believe that a bull can lend us the strength to stand our ground, but remind us not to crash around like one in a china shop. We believe that by harnessing the power of one’s raw physical strength, and balancing it with mental control, while remaining authentic, will lead to the production of incredible athletic potential.
