Kanji Hacks 漢字の覚え方

How to memorize kanji so they stick

立(た·つ、リツ、リュウ)

Meaning: stand up

Components: 亠 (pot lid), 一 (one)

My hack: It looks a lot like a sign for a men’s restroom, where the handle to the “pot lid” is the head, the “lid” is the shoulders, and the vertical-ish lines are the sides of the body. You can remember it because men stand in the restroom.
