小林流翔武館 is the title, Shorin-Ryu Shobukan meaning "Little Forest Style - Soaring Warrior House", in Japanese.

There is more than one version of both Shorin-Ryu and Shobukan out there, so make sure the characters here match the ones used at your dojo.

少林流 is the Japanese martial arts title "Shorin-ryu".

Though the first part of the title comes from the Shaolin (small forest) monks of China.
In Japan, this refers to the Okinawa School of Karate.


小Note that often in Japanese, the first Kanji of this title was changed to the version shown to the right. If you prefer this version, please click on the Kanji to the right instead of the button above.

少林寺流 is the Japanese martial arts title "Shorin-ji-ryu".

Though the first part of the title comes from the Shaolin temple of China. In Japan, this refers to an Okinawa school of karate.

Note: Sometimes this title is written without the "ji" or "temple" Kanji.

Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do

Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do Scroll

鬆林流空手道 is the Japanese title for the Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do school of martial arts.

If directly translated, it means, "Pine Forest Style Empty Hand Way".

Notes:
1. 松林流 can be pronounced Matsubayashi-Ryū or Shōrin-Ryū. This can be confusing as Shōrin can also represent 少林 which refers to the Shaolin (little forest) style.
2. 松 can also be written in the traditional form of 鬆.

shi dou kan
Shidokan Scroll

志道館 is the Japanese title Shidōkan (sometimes pronounced Kokorozashi-do-kan).

志道館 is often associated with Shorin-ryu Shidokan (小林流志道館). Do not confuse this title with the newer 士道館 which is also romanized as Shidōkan.

I've noticed you are searching for "Shorin-Ryu". There is a lot of confusion about whether it should be 少林 or 小林. The original Chinese Shaolin is 少林 but somehow in Japanese, it became 小林 (both versions are pronounced "Shorin" in Japanese). It is hard to say which one is correct. If you want a different first character from the titles shown on this page, please let me know by putting a note in the "Special Instructions" tab when you customize your calligraphy artwork.

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 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.
