Seiryoku Zenyo



Seiryoku Zenryo-Use your energy wisely

This is one of two new kakemono wall scrolls that were inspired by the training precepts of Jigoro Kano, (1860-1938) a student in his early years of Tenjin Shinyo Ryu and Kito Ryu jujutsu, and in later life, the Founder of modern judo. When Kano began his study of jujutsu, the training was brutal, the techniques lethal, and rivalry between schools so great it often led to fatal encounters between masters. The movie film Sugata Sanshiro written and directed by cinema virtuoso, Akira Kurosawa, gives a wonderfully accurate view of jujutsu during the Meiji era, and is strongly recommended for anyone interested in the subject.



Our scrolls are produced using the latest Japanese 12 color electronic printing system on 100 lb. premium coated archival quality art car. This guarantees the most artistic appearance together with durability and freedom from fading.

After years of research, we discovered the best way to reproduce calligraphy scrolls is to use a commercial Japanese twelve color art printer that uses special pigments, not toners. This gives a permanent image with an “organic” look rather than toners’ shiny plastic appearance. Our karate dojo scrolls look just the same as those found in Japan and Okinawa.
