Chinese or Korean Army General

Chinese or Korean Army General Scroll

There is a slight variation in the way the first character is written. 將軍 is the more Chinese and Korean Hanja version.

So if you want to specifically refer to a Chinese or Korean General, this is the way. Japanese people would still easily identify this as "shogun".

Note: This term is also used for Admiral in Korean in a certain context (if you need a better title for Admiral, just let me know).

Shogun / Japanese General

shougun
Shogun / Japanese General Scroll

Shogun in the simplest definition is a General but you could also use words such as commander, lord, overlord, highest ranking, or commanding officer.

The title "Shogun" has held some slightly ambiguous meanings at times in Japanese history.

In the west, when someone mentions "Shogun" we may be filled with thoughts of gallant warriors. Some might even think of the TV mini-series with Richard Chamberlain. Often westerners use the words, Samurai and Shogun, interchangeably, but that's really not technically correct. In the case of the Samurai, the Shogun was a designated (by the emperor) leader of a gild of Samurai. In this context, the Shogun was a Samurai lord. Or effectively, a commanding officer of a company of Samurai - to put it in modern military terms.

Sometimes a Shogun was a general, other times he was the leader of a military government in Japan - but not a front line warrior like a Samurai.

Variants of the same characters are used in China for the rank and title of a General of the People's Liberation Army (and the same term and characters have been used for the last 2200 years since the Qin Dynasty).

Army / Military

jūn
gun
Army / Military Scroll

軍 means army, military, or arms.

軍 is also a character used in the compound word that means "army general". It's the "gun" in the well-known Japanese title "Shogun" which means general.

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.
