Soldier / Private

China shì bīng
knob
ribbon top
knob
<mark>Soldier</mark> / Private

This means "Soldier", but more specifically, a rank-and-file soldier (a private or troop - you could say a ground-pounder). Our other entry for "solider / serviceman" is probably better for a wall scroll (since someday, you will be promoted).

Note: In Japanese, they use these characters in opposite order to create the same meaning word. In that order, it's pronounced "heishi" in Japanese. Just let us know if you want it in Japanese Kanji order when you place your order.

Soldier / Serviceman

China jūn rén
Japan gun jin
knob
ribbon top
knob
<mark>Soldier</mark> / Serviceman

This means "Soldier" or literally "Military Person". This can also be translated as, "military personnel", "soldier", or "serviceman" (it is unisex, so male or female is not indicated).

Warrior of God / <mark>Soldier</mark> of God

This means, "Warrior of God" or "Soldier of God" in Japanese.

Warrior Monk / Soldier Priest

China sēng bīng
Japan sou hei
knob
ribbon top
knob
Warrior Monk / <mark>Soldier</mark> Priest

This is a strange title for a wall scroll, but it may suit you if you see yourself as a warrior monk. This title is not commonly used but will be understood in both Chinese and Japanese. It can also be read as "armed monks".

Marine / Soldier of the Sea

Japanese / Korean
Japan kai hei
knob
ribbon top
knob
Marine / <mark>Soldier</mark> of the Sea

This way to express "Marine" as in an individual "Soldier of the Sea" in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja characters (not to be confused with Korean Hangul).

Breaking down each character, this means:
"ocean/sea soldier/army/warrior".

Please note that this Japanese/Korean version kind of means "sailor" or "navy" in Chinese.

American Soldier / American Serviceman

China méi guó jūn rén
knob
ribbon top
knob
American <mark>Soldier</mark> / American Serviceman

This means "American Soldier" or literally "American Military Person". This can also be translated as, "American military personnel", or "American serviceman". Gender is not specified in this title, so it's appropriate for male or female soldiers.

Soldier of the Gods

China shén bīng
Japan shin pei
knob
ribbon top
knob
<mark>Soldier</mark> of the Gods

This is a Japanese, Chinese, and Korean title that means "soldier dispatched by a god", or "soldier under the protection of the gods".

This is used more in Japanese (especially in animation) than the other languages.

Soldier of Fortune

Chinese
China gù yōng bīng
knob

knob
<mark>Soldier</mark> of Fortune

This is "soldier of fortune" in Chinese. It can also be read as, "mercenary" or "hired gun".

Military Veteran / Retired Soldier

China tuì wǔ jūn rén
knob
ribbon top
knob
Military Veteran / Retired <mark>Soldier</mark>

This is the Chinese title for a military veteran.

The first two characters mean, "retired from the ranks", or discharged.

The last two characters mean, serviceman, soldier, or military personnel.

Warrior

China wǔ shì
Japan bu shi
knob
ribbon top
knob
Warrior

The first character is the spirit or essence of a warrior. The second character means soldier, officer, or official. This character is also used appropriately enough to describe a piece of a chess game. This can also be translated as soldier, cavalier, palace guard, or samurai and sometimes as knight. I've occasionally seen this translated as strong man or tough man (gender not necessarily implied).

By far, this is the most common way to write warrior in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Note: In Japanese, this is Bushi, as in Bushido.

Warrior / Fighter

Senshi

This is an alternate title for warrior, soldier, fighter, warrior, guardian, or combatant in Japanese.

From Japanese, this is often romanized as "Senshi".

Soul of a Warrior

China jīng shén yǒng shì
knob
ribbon top
knob
Soul of a Warrior

This can be translated as the spirit or soul of a warrior. The first two characters can be translated as vigor, vitality, drive, spirit, mind, heart, mental essence and psychological component. Basically "your soul".

The second two characters mean "warrior" or literally "brave soldier/man" although some will translate this word as "hero". Therefore, this is also how to say "soul of a hero".

Note: This title is best for Chinese and old Korean. It does make sense in Japanese, but is not a common or natural Kanji combination in Japanese.


We have two versions of this phrase. The only difference is the first two and last two characters are swapped. The version here suggests that you are the warrior or hero. The other version suggests that you admire or like the idea of the spirit of a warrior.

Warrior Soul / Spirit of a Fighter

Japanese
Japan senshi damashii
knob

Warrior Soul / Spirit of a Fighter

This is "warrior soul" or "warrior spirit" in Japanese.

Here's the breakdown of the Kanji:

戦士 (senshi) warrior; soldier; combatant; fighter.

魂 (damashii/tamashii) soul; spirit; can sometimes mean "ghost".

Warrior Soul / Heroic Spirit

China yǒng shì jīng shén
knob
ribbon top
knob
Warrior Soul / Heroic Spirit

This can be translated as the warrior's spirit or warrior's soul. The first two characters can be translated as "warrior" or literally "brave soldier/man" although some will translate this word as "hero". Therefore, this is also how to say "heroic spirit".

The second two characters mean vigor, vitality, drive, spirit, mind, heart, mental essence and psychological component. Basically "your soul".


We have two versions of this phrase. The only difference is the first two and last two characters are swapped. The version here suggests that you admire or like the idea of the spirit of a warrior. The other version suggests that you are the warrior or hero.

Value of Warrior Generals

China bīng zài jīng ér bú zài duō jiàng zài móu ér bú zài yǒng
knob
ribbon top
knob
Value of Warrior Generals

This literally means: [Just as] soldiers/warriors [are valued for their] quality and not [just] for quantity, [so] generals [are valued] for their tactics, not [just] for [their] bravery.

This is a proverb that follows one about how it is better to have warriors of quality, rather than just a large quantity of warriors in your army/force.

knob

knob
Warrior / Musha

This is an alternate title for a warrior or samurai in Japanese. It is often romanized as "Musha".

The literal meaning of these Kanji is "war person", "military person", or "martial person".

Daredevil Warrior
Soul of a Warrior

Japanese only
Japan oni mu sha
knob
ribbon top
knob
Daredevil Warrior<br>Soul of a Warrior

This is an unusual title that can be translated two ways. The most common is probably "daredevil warrior". However, the first character means demon, ghost, or soul of the departed. Therefore, it can kind of mean soul of a warrior, or demon warrior.


This title is Japanese only, and should not be used if your audience is Chinese.

Warrior for Peace

China hé píng wǔ shì
knob
ribbon top
knob
Warrior for Peace

This means "Warrior for Peace" (warrior who fights for peace) in Chinese.

knob
ribbon top
knob
Enlightened Warrior

This is not a commonly-used title in Chinese, but sometimes used in Martial arts and military context to refer to a warrior who seems to always be fully aware, enlightened, knowledgeable, noble, and just.

The first two characters are a word that means: to awaken; to come to realize; awakened to the truth; the truth dawns upon one; scales fall from the eyes; to become aware.

The last two characters mean warrior, but can also refer to a samurai, soldier, or fighter.

Spiritual Warrior

Japan rei sen shi

Spiritual Warrior

This is a Japanese title that means, "Spiritual Warrior".

The first Kanji means spiritual.

The second Kanji means war, warfare, or battle.

The third Kanji means soldier, officer, man or pawn.

Warrior Within

China wǔ zhě zhī xīn
knob

This title means, "Warrior Within" from the Chinese video game title, "Prince of Persia: Warrior Within".

This more literally means "warrior or the heart", or "warrior of the soul/mind".

Warrior Essence / Warrior Spirit / Martial

China
Japan bu
knob
ribbon top
knob
Warrior Essence / Warrior Spirit / Martial

This character is the essence or spirit of a warrior. This character is part of the word "wu shu" which is sometimes translated as "martial arts" or "kung fu".

In more modern speech and other context, this can mean military, martial, warlike, fierce, and perhaps violent, but usually as a prefix for a longer word or phrase.

Warrior Saint / Saint of War

China wǔ shèng
knob
ribbon top
knob
Warrior Saint / Saint of War

This Chinese title, Wusheng means, Saint of War.

This is usually a reference to Guan Yu (關羽), also known as Guan Gong (關公).

Some Chinese soldiers still pray to Wusheng for protection. They would especially do this before going into battle.

Peaceful Warrior

Chinese
China píng hé de wǔ shì
knob
ribbon top

Peaceful Warrior

This means "Peaceful Warrior" in Chinese. This does in fact sound like an oxymoron in Chinese - but many of you have asked for this special title.

Note, this is not the same thing as "warrior for peace".


See Also...  Peace

Peaceful Warrior

Japanese only
Japan hei wa no bu shi
knob
ribbon top
knob
Peaceful Warrior

This can be read as "Peaceful Warrior" or "Warrior for Peace" in Japanese. This sounds like an oxymoron in Japanese, so it's a weird title. Expect Japanese people to be perplexed when they see it.

平和 (heiwa) peace; harmony.
の (no) possessive particle.
武士 (bushi) warrior; samurai; soldier.

Dragon Warrior

China lóng wǔ shì
Japan ryuu bu shi
knob
ribbon top
knob
Dragon Warrior

This is a generic title for "Dragon Warrior". Just as in English, it's a bit ambiguous. It can mean one who fights against dragons, or the title of a warrior himself (imagine a warrior with a dragon symbol on his chest).

Dragon Warrior

China lóng zhàn shì
knob
ribbon top
knob
Dragon Warrior

This is another version of "Dragon Warrior". It's still a bit ambiguous. This one reads more like "Dragon Fighter" than "Dragon Warrior". Perhaps you can also translate this one as, "One who fights like a dragon".

Dragon Warrior

China dòu lóng zhàn shì
knob
ribbon top
knob
Dragon Warrior

This "Dragon Warrior" is specifically one who fights against dragons. This can also be read as "Dragon Fighter".

knob
ribbon top
knob
The Warrior's Word, Dependable as Gold and Steel

This is an old Japanese proverb about the value of the word of a warrior. Here's a couple versions of how this can be translated:

A warrior's single word is as unchanging and reliable as gold and steel.
A warrior's promise is as dependable as gold, and his [scabbard contains] untarnished steel (a sword).


Note: Sometimes this phrase is written as 男子の一言、金鉄の如し (danshi no ichigon kintetsu no gotoshi)

Heart of a Warrior / Samurai Heart

China wǔ shì xīn
Japan bu shi kokoro
knob
ribbon top
knob

knob

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.
