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

This is the title for "Karate-Do" in Japanese. This literally means, "Empty Hand Way".

Looking at the Kanji, the first means "empty" or "ether".
The second Kanji means "hand".
The third means "way" or "method".

This term is known worldwide as the most famous martial arts of Japan. The origins are thought to come from Kung Fu, but with movements simplified so it is easier to master and use.
