View Full Version : Kanji for the word Cobra.

7th August 2001, 21:29
Hi. My Shihan has given me the nickname "cobra". I am a little concerned that he has set the bar a little high for me with this name.
I've looked around a bit trying to find the Kanji for this without much luck. I have read this is a traditional MA symbol, so it seems it should not be quite the chore it has been for me.
Could anyone point me in the right direction.

To the best of my knowledge, this is it. It refers to the Indian Cobra.


Although, you will probably more often find it written in katakana as Ru . kobura

Hope this helps.
