I have trained for 25 years with a local (European) Aikido master, but now I have to move, albeit temporarily, to another town, and I would like to give a gift to my teacher to represent the "debt" I have with him for all he taught me.
I also practice Shodo, so my idea was to make a scroll with the Kanji "義理" and give it to him before leaving.
I just want to add that I will keep practicing at another dojo in the place I move to, and that I may very well come back to my hometown in a year or so, just so that you get a complete picture.
My question: is "義理" appropriate here? If this is not the case what would you suggest?
I opted for "礼" in the end - thanks to everyone who answered or commented this.
