Five Families / Tsoi Li Hoi Fut Hung

 cài lǐ hé fú xióng
 tsoi lee ho fat hung
Five Families / Tsoi Li Hoi Fut Hung Scroll

蔡李何佛雄 is the five families associated with San Soo Kung Fu.

The characters are always the same, but there are several ways these are romanized from Cantonese, Mandarin, and other dialects. Some common ones include Tsoi Li Hoi Fut Hung and Choi Li Ho Fut Hung.

If you are using a different romanization, that does not mean it's wrong. It might just be that your school is using a different dialect or romanization scheme.

Jin Ji Du Li

 jīn jī dú lì
 kin kei doku ritsu
Jin Ji Du Li Scroll

金雞獨立 or “Jin Ji Du Li,” means “golden rooster stands on one leg.”

This is also called “crane stance” in English. This is used in wushu, karate, and other forms of martial arts.

This can be pronounced, “kinkei dokuritsu” in Japanese but it's rarely a title used in Japanese.

Lianne / Li-Anne

 rii an
Lianne / Li-Anne Scroll

リーアン is the name Lianne or Li-Anne in Japanese (Katakana).

Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

 dà jí dà lì
Da Ji Da Li Scroll

大吉大利 or “Da Ji Da Li” is a Chinese proverb that means great luck, great profit, or everything is thriving.

 měi lí
Beautiful Scroll

美麗 is a two-character word used often in Chinese, old Korean, and ancient Japanese to express beauty.

I've had a few requests for a “two-character beautiful,” and this is by far the best word. This is not a common word for an Asian person to want on a wall scroll. However, you will see it commonly used as an adjective in phrases, stories, and titles throughout magazines and signage in China.

美麗 can also be translated as gorgeous or lovely.

Note: 美麗 is not commonly used in modern Japan.
