japanese conji

Does anyone know where I can get this phrase written in a japanese conji?

Manifest yang
In your right hand,
Balance it with
The yin of your left,
And guide your partner

This was one of my instructors favorite phrases and I want to add it into the memorial plaque that I am making for his family.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tony Dehn

Re: japanese conji

Tony,

"The Essence of Aikido" by John Stevens has a a number of the founders Doka written in English, romaji and Kanji. It's probably the first place to look.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
