Traditional Chinese Character & Pinyin
Master, Sifu, Shifu chinese characters (shi1 fu)

Simplified Chinese Character & Pinyin
Master, Sifu chinese symbol (shi1 fu)


The first character means teacher while the second father, so together the two Chinese symbols for master literally means “teacher father”. This accords with the Chinese saying, “One who is your teacher for one day, is your father for life”. This term is mainly used in the context of martial arts, referring to the teacher and master who instructs students.


This term is sometimes romanized as “si fu”. This is actually the Cantonese romanization. The pronunciation in Mandarin is actually like "sure foo" (using typical English pronunciation). There's an "R-sound" in there, which is not obvious from the romanization. Many martial arts studios mispronounce this like "she foo" (which is actually the Japanese pronunciation). In Cantonese, it sounds like "Sea foo" (almost like "sea food", minus the "d" on the end).


This Chinese calligraphy scroll with symbols for “shifu/sifu” is a best gift idea for your respected martial arts master.


Our talented Chinese disabled calligrapher is able to customize your Chinese calligraphy scrolls and Japanese calligraphy scrolls in five calligraphy styles/ scripts as shown at the bottom of this page. Start customizing your Chinese calligraphy art of the Chinese symbols for “sifu/shifu”.


About Talented Disabled Artist: Master Shouxing Wang


chinese-disabled-calligraphy-artistHow many years does it require to be a great master of Chinese brush calligraphy? 20 to 30 years. Shouxing Wang is from a village in Shandong China and actively lives with paralysis from waist down for nearly thirty years. To fight fate, he developed an interest in Chinese calligraphy art, which is believed to have a very similar effect to Chinese Taichi, cultivating the mind and morality. Now after nearly thirty years of practice, Mr. Wang has won various art competitions and can skillfully master all scripts of Chinese character calligraphy, namely, zhuanshu(seal script), lishu(clerical script), kaishu(regular script), xingshu(running script/semi cursive script) and caoshu(cursive script/grass script). Master Wang writes with a brush, ink and an inkstone (used to mix the ink) on rice paper.


In addition to Chinese calligraphy art, Master. Wang is also a big fan of various kinds of musical instrument, such as erhu and flute. Master. Wang said, “Life is not fair but you make it fair with your effort and attitude.”


"Initially, practicing calligraphy lifted me out of the pain of losing legs, brought me consolation and gave me courage to face various difficulties in life, and I found new hopes. Now I believe in my future and I shall work harder and promote the calligraphy art form." he said. When he was interviewed by journalists with famous media and asked what it was like to practice calligraphy these years. View More Story

Everything was fine. My Sifu really enjoyed the gift.The only problem I had was that the presentation box did not open asI thought it did in the advertisement of it. Also, the box itself was a little roughed up at one corner -- kind of worn down so the card board showed. However, I would highly recomend Chilculture to anyone.
