李小龍 is the real full name of Bruce Lee.
Many people have no idea that Bruce Lee had a "real" Chinese name. In Mandarin and Cantonese, he is known as "Lǐ XiǎoLóng" and "Léi SíuLùng" respectively.
He kept his family name pronunciation (Li = Lee). 李 is a common family name that also means "plum".
His given name 小龍 (Xiao-Long) literally means "little dragon". 李小龍 is why you often see the character for dragon associated with Bruce Lee on various posters etc.
For a pronunciation lesson, the "X" in Romanized Mandarin is pronounced like a "sh" sound but with your tongue at the bottom of your mouth. The vowel sound in "Long" is like the English "oh", not like the "ah" sound in the English word "long".
If you are a big Bruce Lee fan, you should know this information, and you should have this wall scroll hanging in your room or martial arts studio.
Note: Japanese use these same exact Chinese characters / Kanji to write Bruce Lee's real name (with different pronunciation - which is a bit like how the name "Bruce Lee" sounds in English).
崇 is the surname "Chong" or "Zhong" in Mandarin Chinese, "Sung" in Cantonese and Korean, and Su in Japanese.
崇 is used in other Chinese words and other Asian languages with the following meanings:
high; sublime; lofty; to esteem; to worship; eminent; honorable; honourable; reverence; adore/adoration.
周 originally represents the Zhou Dynasty (1046-256 BC) of ancient China.
It has become a surname in China that romanizes as Zhou from Mandarin, Chou in Taiwan, and often written as Chow from Cantonese.
The actual meaning is circle, circumference, lap, cycle, all, thorough, or perimeter. It is used in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja with that meaning - though it can also be used as a name in those languages as well.
This Chinese, Korean, and Japanese character means field or farm.
Most of the time, this refers to a rice field.
However, this is very commonly used as a surname that romanizes from Mandarin as Tian, and from Cantonese and Taiwanese, it's romanized as Tien.
In Japanese, it can be the surname Yanakida, Tatsuru, or Tazaki. There are other romanizations used for Japanese surnames for this character. When just a field, it is pronounced "den" in Japanese.
蔡李何佛雄 is the five families as associated with San Soo Kung Fu.
The characters are always the same, but there are several ways these are romanized from Cantonese, Mandarin, and other dialects. Some common ones include Tsoi Li Hoi Fut Hung and Choi Li Ho Fut Hung.
If you are using a different romanization, that does not mean it's wrong. It might just be that your school is using a different dialect or romanization scheme.
貢 is a Chinese surname that can romanize as Gong from Mandarin or Kung from Cantonese.
In Japan, this can be the surname or given name Mitsugi. The meaning of this is tribute or gifts.
香港 is the Chinese and Japanese name for the Special Administrative Region (SAR) of The Peoples Republic of China known as Hong Kong (formerly a British administrated territory).
The romanization "Hong Kong" is probably a British approximation of the Cantonese pronunciation for this land.
In Cantonese, this is Jeet Kune Do. Often it is explained as the "Way of the Intercepting Fist". 截拳道 is a martial art style founded by Bruce Lee.
The first character means to cut-off or sever.
The second character is fist.
The last character means way or method.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
