This is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Kaili.

This is also the name of Kaili city in Guizhou province.

I named my first daughter Kaili after visiting Kaili city and finding very friendly people there. I think this is a great English-Chinese baby name, as it is pronounceable in both languages, and the name works as a given name in both languages as well.

ribbon top
knob

This is the name Kai written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


This name is written in Katakana, a specifically-Japanese character set.

These two characters literally mean opening flowers (a verb). This word is also associated with Springtime, the beginning of something, or youth.

Wado-Kai

Style of Karate
Japan wa dou kai
knob
ribbon top
knob

Wado-Kai is a style of Karate.

Breaking down the characters into the proper Japanese Romaji, you have "wa dou kai" or "wa dō kai". The meaning is roughly-translated as "Harmony Way Club" or "Peace Method Association". The first Kanji should probably be read as harmony, rather than peace in this case.

Isshin-Kai / Isshinkai

Japan isshin kai
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Japanese martial arts title "Isshinkai" or "Isshin-Kai". It literally means "One Heart Association" or "Single-Heart Club". This title is often associated with Isshin-Ryu Aikido and Isshin-Ryu Karate-Do. This title is often used as the name for a dojo that teaches these styles.

Kai Zen / Kaizen

China gǎi shàn
Japan kai zen
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means betterment, improvement, to make better, or to improve - specifically incremental and continuous improvement.

This word became very important in post-war Japan when Edwards Deming came to Japan to teach concepts of incremental and continuous improvement (for which the big 3 auto-makers did not want to hear about at the time - even kicking Deming out of their offices). The Japanese workforce absorbed this concept at a time with their culture was in flux and primed for change.

This kaizen term is closely associated with the western title "Total Quality Management". Perhaps dear to my heart since I spent years studying this at university before I moved to China where TQM did not seem to exist. Slowly, this concept has entered China as well (I've actually given lectures on the subject in Beijing).

If you are trying to improve processes at your business or need to remind yourself of your continuous TQM goals, this would be a great wall scroll to hang behind your desk, or in your workplace.

Accept the Situation and Move On

China xiǎng kāi
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a Chinese title that can be translated as "move on".

It can mean to get over a shock or bereavement. More often, it means to avoid dwelling on unpleasant things, or to accept the situation and move on. Basically, it's a suggestion to get over it and get on with life.

The literal meaning of the characters is something like "thoughts opening". But it's understood more as getting over the same old thoughts, and opening yourself up to new thoughts or ways of thinking.

Wado-Ryu

Style of Karate or Jujitsu
Japan wa dou ryuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

Wado-Ryu is a style of Karate or Jujutsu (Jujitsu).
Note: Many will argue as to whether this is a style of Karate or Jujutsu.

While some find Wado-Ryu similar to Shotokan Karate, enough differences exist in perspective and technique that it stands by itself.

Breaking down the characters into the proper Japanese Romaji, you have "wa dou ryuu" or "wa dō ryū". The meaning is roughly-translated as "Harmony Way Style" or "Peace Method Style". The first Kanji should probably be read as harmony, rather than peace in this case.

China huā kāi
knob
ribbon top
knob

These two characters literally mean flower open. This word is also associated with Springtime, the beginning of something, or youth.

This word is often followed by "flower falls" (closes and loses its petals) which means "Things come and go" or "Youth comes and goes".

If you like flowers and the Springtime, this is a great selection for you. However, if you want the companion "flower falls" (flower withers), we offer that as a companion wall scroll or all together as a four-character phrase.

One Key Opens One Lock

An Open Book Benefits Your Mind

China kāi juàn yǒu yì
knob
ribbon top
knob

There are several ways to translate this ancient proverb. Translated literally and directly it says, "Open roll has/yields benefit".

To understand that, you must know a few things...

First, Chinese characters and language have deeper meanings that often are not spoken, but are understood - especially with ancient text like this. Example: It's understood that the "benefit" referred to in this proverb is to the mind of the reader. Just the last character expresses that whole idea.

Second, Chinese proverbs are supposed to make you think, and leave a bit of mystery to figure out.

Third, for this proverb, it should be noted that roll = book. When this proverb came about (about two thousand years ago) books were really rolls of bamboo slips strung together. The first bound books like the ones we use today did not come about until about a thousand years after this proverb when they invented paper in China.

This is a great gift for a bookworm who loves to read and increase their knowledge. Or for any friend that is or wants to be well-read.

Some other translations of this phrase:
Opening a book is profitable
The benefits of education.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

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.
