This customer is serving in the US military and studies Martial Arts. When studying with a Japanese teacher in their discipline, he gave a lesson on the writing Johakyuu. Now this is a term often used in Japanese theater. It describes the slow buildup, to the climax breaking that tempo in the play and then the acceleration to the finish. This martial arts master used the same principles in his training sessions, and this became a defining moment in his understanding of training. In remembrance of this experience, he wanted to have a scroll made which provided that information.
