"Academic and martial ways are not separate roads"
From right to left, this hand-written traditional semi-cursive-style calligraphy reads Wen2 Wu3 Bu4 Qi2 (Chinese) or Bun Bu Fu Ki (Japanese).
Literal translation: Text War Not Branch off. Proper translation: Academic and martial ways are not separate roads. It means that both academic and martial ways are equally important. This saying is closely related to the Chinese warrior-scholars of the ancient times.
