I would like the Japanese characters for "Inner path" (奥道) within the logo, preferably vertical as in the uploaded design. I created the design I uploaded, and I really like it, but I am not able to refine it to my satisfaction on my own. Please refine it, or stick to it as a basis for designs, unless you have a great alternative.
I really do want to see the attached logo explored before I consider other ideas. The symbolism within the uploaded design is a central (inner) path with two paths joining it, the black arrows guiding to it, and the black circle surrounding it is reminiscent of a Karate black belt. The three paths together also look a little like a peace dove, with two leaves of an olive branch in its beak.
I don't want images of fists or people punching/kicking or otherwise posing or performing.
I would like the logo to be able to stand alone or have the "Inner Path" company name beside it.
Finally, if you believe one or more of the constraints above is detrimental to your idea, feel free to show an alternative.
