Martial Arts Master Stamp by Good Characters

Add a touch of professional authenticity to your certificates, awards, documents, cards, and books.


We will customize this Tenkoku style stamp with the translation of your dojo, association, or organization name into ancient Chinese Seal Characters (also known as Tensho in Japan and Hanja in Korea.)


This high quality, self-inking stamp is completely self-contained in an impact-resistant, durable case which assures a long, trouble-free operating life. This stamp is guaranteed to make thousands of clear impressions before the first ink pad ever needs replacing.

Q: What is the typical wording used on this type of stamp?


Answer: Typically it's your name and your rank or title. For example, Sifu Allen Yuan or Sensei Allen Yuan.

Traditional and Modern

Traditional  Invented more than 3,059 years ago, the red square seals have been used to authenticate official documents throughout East Asia. The Good Characters™ Martial Arts Master Stamps make authentic imprints just like traditional seals.


Modern  Unlike ancient seals made of clay or stone, our modern, impact-resistant, self-inking stamps produce sharp, clear impressions consistently.


Designed for Professionals  Combining ancient Asian tradition and modern Western innovation, stamps made by Good Characters are authentic yet highly efficient. Perfect for professional martial arts certificate authentication and all forms of correspondence.

Eastern and Western

Eastern  The most important element on your stamp is your name. Our naming experts will translate or transliterate your name and title (title optional) into ancient Chinese seal characters (also known as Japanese tensho kanji or Korean hanja).


Western  Translations or transliterations can be common or—worse—inappropriate. Our methodical naming process creates a name for you that fits your unique personality and has positive meanings.


Customized for You  Your brand is your reputation. The Master Stamp is a tool for brand-building, for projecting your image in a very brief amount of time. Brand yourself as knowledgeable and professional.
