Buddhist Symbols Needed

Can anyone help me?

I'm looking for either the Chinese or Japanese symbol for "The Middle Way" or "The Middle Path".

I have found that, in Chinese, the word is "chudan" and means "midsection" when used in karate training, however, I have yet to actually locate the specific character(s) which make up the symbols.

I have found symbols for "The Journey" and "The Way" but nothing identifies either of these as being significant of following the "middle" way we talk about in Buddhism.

If anyone has any advice, I would appreciate it. I've googled, yahooed, excited, lycosed, and dogpiled my fingers off trying to discover these symbols!

Namaste to all Buddhas and Bodhisattavas who are walking the path with me.
