    With the success of our TV commercial (here in case you missed it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZr9PqDgLhc), we figured we should update the academy logo.

    Here's the old logo:

    (Please note the barbed wire around the "pain awaits you". Also, we figured the pitbull theme was played out so we went with the cicada.)

    also can you attach music to a logo..almost like an active logo..I think anytime someone sees that logo they should also automatically hear....


    "ruffffffff...let the boydies hit the flow...let the boydies hit the flow...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ufffffffff"

    I agree with everyone above

    add all those things to the logo and then put it all inside of a triangle

    You guys make excellent points.

    How about skulls that shoot flames out of the eye sockets? That way, we could cover both the skull and flames requirements.

    The music idea is good, too. I'm thinking something really hardcore punk like from Avril Lavigne's first album.

    You should use the theme song "who let the cicadas out" by the bara boys

    I've heard the red eyed 17 year variety have way better jitz than the lame ass green eyed annual variety.

    In my experience I've found that cicadas have a great top game. Dave, any tips to help me get out from under their side control?

    Man, that new logo is full of win. You should also consider using any of the following:
    Hard core
    Warrior
    Cage
    Pit
    Fury
    Extreme
    You can aslo combine them like this:
    Hardcore Warrior Extreme Cage Fighting
