8. No Fear
This Chinese word is a form of personal strength.
It is a word that describes a person who is willing to take a risk. In English, we might say, "Someone with guts".
An example might be a person that is not rich but invests a lot of money into something (knowing they could double their money, or lose it all). Win or lose, this is a person that knows or pushes their potential.
Tearing this word apart, the first character means "to compel", urgent, urge, force, imminent, or "spur on". The second means power, strong, bear, or exert.
Note: 迫力 is also a word in Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja but with a meaning more like force, intensity, appeal, strength, impact, force, or simply power.
無敵 means tough or unbeatable in Chinese characters, Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji.
Other translations for this word include: unequalled; without rival; a paragon; invincible; unrivaled; unrivalled; no match for; cannot beat; daring; fearless; intrepid; bold.
In Japanese, this can also be the surname Muteki.
冒險 is another Chinese and Korean word for "Adventure".
冒險 is more of a "risk-taking" version of adventure.
The first character can mean "brave" and "bold". The second character means "dangerous" and "rugged". Together they can be defined as a word meaning "adventure" in Chinese and Korean.
Note: Some dictionaries translate these two characters as "take a risk".
大胆不敵 is a Japanese word that can mean a few things depending on how you read it.
Popular translations include fearless, audacity (the attitude of a) daredevil, or daring.
The first two Kanji create a word that means: bold, fearless, or daring; audacious.
The last two Kanji create a word that means: no match for, cannot beat, daring, fearless, intrepid, bold, or tough.
As with many Japanese words, the two similar-meaning words work together to multiple the meaning and intensity of the whole 4-Kanji word.
This literally means "No Fear". But perhaps not the most natural Chinese phrase (see our other "No Fear" phrase for a more complete thought). However, this two-character version of "No Fear" seems to be a very popular way to translate this into Chinese, when we checked Chinese Google.
Note: This also means "No Fear" in Japanese and Korean but this character pair is not often used in Japan or Korea.
This term appears in various Chinese dictionaries with definitions like "without fear", intrepidity, fearless, dauntless, and bold.
In Buddhist context, this is a word derived from abhaya meaning: Fearless, dauntless, secure, nothing and nobody to fear. Also from vīra meaning: courageous, bold.
A great way to tell your Japanese friends about your lifestyle, while keeping your Anglo friends in the dark.
Kind of a huge bold sign to say "I'm Gay" without anybody knowing.
These Kanji characters literally mean "same sex love". This phrase would also be understood in Chinese but this combination would act to really emphasize the "love" component to a native Chinese person.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
