Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Japanese Kanji Calligraphy Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is the title for Goju Ryu Karate-Do. Technically, it should be "gou juu ryuu kara te dou" or "gō jū ryū kara te dō" in proper Japanese Romaji.


About this artwork...

This was created by Japanese master calligrapher Bishou Imai of Nara, Japan. The materials used include special calligraphy paper and ink. The artwork was sent to our workshop in Beijing where we created a hand-built silk brocade wall scroll. By building the wall scroll at our own workshop, we save you a lot of money - most authentic Japanese calligraphy wall scrolls cost over $200!

Bishou was born and raised in Nara, Japan. She began her studies of Calligraphy at the age of four at Baikou Calligraphy School. When Bishou was 25 years old, she received a membership to the Tenshin Kai (calligraphy society) and her life as a calligrapher began. Bishou progressed to the next level, becoming a member of the Cho-ko Guild which is the most prestigious calligraphy society in Japan. During her apprenticeship, she taught calligraphy and studied the art of Japanese silk scroll making (hyougu) at Mizuno Hyougu-ten.

美嶂 is how Bishou is written. This name means "Beautiful Cliff/Mountain". You will see these characters signed just before the red signature stamp on her calligraphy pieces.

Gary's random little things about China:

Beijing/Peking Roast Duck:

If you order Peking Roast Duck, you should do so only in Beijing, China (anywhere else, it's just not the same).

A hot tip: Always ask how long it will take before the duck is served.
If they tell you any timeframe less than 30 minutes, change your mind and order the Kung Pao Chicken (Gong Bao Ji Ding) instead.
The reason: If they can serve Beijing Roast Duck in less than 30 minutes, that means you are getting "pre-cooked" duck.
If you have to "duck the duck", next time look for a restaurant with ducks hanging over an open wood fire.
