Active Duty Military

Person on Active Duty

Active Duty Military Scroll

現役軍人 means "Active Duty Soldier" or literally "Active Duty Military Person".

This title is a great way to show your pride in being an active duty member of the armed forces.

The first two characters mean "active duty" and the second two characters can be translated as "military personnel", "soldier", or "serviceman" (it is unisex, so male or female is not indicated).

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.

Discipline / Training / Tempering Character

mó liàn
Discipline / Training / Tempering Character Scroll

This is a form of discipline which suggests training of the mind and character, aimed at producing self-control, obedience, etc.

One of my Chinese-English dictionaries even translates this as "tempering oneself" or turning yourself into hardened steel.


In old Korean Hanja, they use these characters in reverse order but with the same meaning. If you want the Korean version, please click this link instead of the button above: Korean version.

Military Discipline

jūn jì
gun ki
Military Discipline Scroll

軍紀 means military discipline or military principles.

If maintaining your military discipline is important to you personally, or important to your military unit, this is the wall scroll to have up behind your desk. In fact, it's the kind of thing I expect to see behind the desk of a First Sergeant or maybe a hardcore NCO.

Note: In some rare context, it could be extended to mean "morale" but "discipline" is much closer to the commonly-held definition.

Note: This term is not well-known outside of the military services in Asia (not used by the common person).

Military Engineering Scroll

工兵 means the "engineering corps" of the army or other branch of the military.

The first character alone means work, worker, skill, profession, trade, craft, construction or labor. The second character means army, force or military.

Military Intelligence

jūn shì qíng bào
gunji-jouhou
Military Intelligence Scroll

軍事情報 is the full way to say "Military Intelligence".

The first two characters mean "military affairs".

The second two characters mean "intelligence" or "information-gathering".

If you work in the G2 section of your military unit, this is the wall scroll for you.

Military Veteran / Retired Soldier

tuì wǔ jūn rén
Military Veteran / Retired Soldier Scroll

退伍軍人 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.

Training / Drill

xùn liàn
kunren
Training / Drill Scroll

If training or drill is important to you (especially for military drill and training), this might be just the thing for a drill master to hang behind his/her desk.

This term is universal in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja. It can also mean practice or exercise, depending on context.

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.


A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

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.

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.
