Assistance needed

I am not sure if this is the correct forum...being as I am new...but here is what I need assistance with. I am looking for web sites that display aikido symbols. I am having a ring made and am looking for symbols the jeweler can use on this ring. I have found a few but I thought since this was an aikido site your members may have ideas that I haven't come across.

ANY assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you

Re: Assistance needed

circle -
square -
triangle -
ai -
ki -
do -

pine tree - representative of endurance and longevity
plum blossoms - representative of courage and purity of character
bamboo - representative of strength and flexibility

i remember seeing alot of symbols in "The Spiritual Foundations of Aikido" by William Gleason. Might want to take a look.

- oh yeah, a bearded, balding, smallish old guy in a white hakama pretty much sums it up for me!

Re: Assistance needed

I just bought the Gleason book and it does have a wealth of kanji that might meet your needs.
