fu rin ka zan

To me this represents martial strength.

-What was "fu"? "Wind"? Anyone know the expression like the other ones I hope I do remember correctly?
-I think the "rin" means "forest" - to mean like to be flexible like a forest.
-The ka can be written to mean "fire" or it can be written to mean a "spiral" like a "typoon"?
-I think the "zan" is the same as the "yama" character for strong as a "mountain".

Any help out there for a swiss cheese memory?

Rob
