Boxing

China quán jī
Boxing Wall Scroll

拳擊 is the term used in Chinese to refer to the original Olympic sport of combat and fighting. If you like to strap on your boxing gloves and go a few rounds, or are just a fan of boxing, this could make a nice wall scroll for you.

Note that Japanese use the same first character (which means fist) but a different Kanji for the second. Please see our Japanese boxing entry for that version.

Boxing

Japan ken tou
Boxing Wall Scroll

拳闘 is the term used in Japanese Kanji to refer to the original Olympic sport of combat and fighting. This can also be translated as "prize fighting."

The first Kanji means fist. The second means fight. So when literally translated, this means "fist fight" (though understood in Japanese as a more refined sport, versus street fighting).

Note: A completely different second character is used in the Chinese word for boxing but a Chinese person would still be able to guess the meaning of these Kanji.

Kick-Boxing

Japan kikkubokushingu
Kick-Boxing Wall Scroll

キックボクシング is the Japanese Katakana word for kickboxing. キックボクシング is a transliteration or borrowed word, meaning that it's meant to sound like "kick-boxing," rather than being an organic Japanese Kanji word that means "kick-boxing."


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Kick-Boxing

China tī quán
Kick-Boxing Wall Scroll

踢拳 is kickboxing in Chinese.

The first character means "kick," and the second means "fist" hence "boxing."

Fighting Spirit

Japan tou shi

Fighting Spirit

Alternate Japanese version
Japan tou kon
Fighting Spirit Wall Scroll

Fighting Spirit

The Will to Fight
China dòu zhì
Fighting Spirit Wall Scroll

This literally means fighting spirit. As in the spirit that a warrior, soldier, athlete or fighter must possess.

斗Note: There is more than one way to write the first character of this word. It is sometimes written like the version shown to the right (yes, it's completely different but has the same meaning & pronunciation). If you have a preference, please let us know in the special instructions about your order.

Fighting Spirit

Japan tou ki
Fighting Spirit Wall Scroll

闘氣 is an alternate Japanese title for "fighting spirit." This one is more like "fighting energy." The second character is "ki" the same "ki" in Aikido. This "ki" is the spiritual energy that all martial arts practitioners must master and focus.

Tantui

China tán tuǐ
Tantui Wall Scroll

潭腿 is the title for "Tantui," a northern school of martial arts boxing.

Savate

Japan sobatto
Savate Wall Scroll

ソバット is the Japanese Katakana for the French word, Savate, meaning "kick-fighting," or "French boxing."


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Drunken Fist

Japan suiken
Drunken Fist Wall Scroll

酔拳 is the Japanese version of the title for Drunken Fist, or Drunken Boxing.

Muay Thai

Japan mue tai
Muay Thai Wall Scroll

ムエタイ is the Japanese Katakana title for "Muay Thai" or "Thai boxing."

China bā guà zhǎng
Japan hakkeshou

八卦掌 is the title Baguazhang, a form of Chinese boxing.

Literally-translated, this means, "Eight Trigrams Palm.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.


A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
