I am looking for the japanese characters or calligraphy for the 4 principles of Aikido (Keep One Point, Keep Weight Underside, Extend Ki and Relax Completely).

Thank you

Do you know where I can find it in Kanji? I think what you posted was hiragana. I'm hoping that the Kanji will be shorter.

Thank you very much...

Japanese is written in with a combination of kanji and hiragana (and at times katakana). There's no shorter version, unless written in Chinese.

yeah, that's how they get away with not having spaces between words, everyotherwordiseitherKANJIorHIRAGANAorKATAKANA. So such thing as an all kanji japanese sentence.
