Yamada Ryugyoku has been doing Japanese Calligraphy for 50 years. She received her master calligraphy certificate 10 years ago. She mastered the Kaisho, Gyosho, and Sosho styles of calligraphy.
She got her name, Ryugyoku from her Sensei. It is customary that the Sensei give one of the part of his or her trade name to their disciples. The Ryu means Dragon and gyoku means beautiful gem. Ryugyoku's sensei is Ryuun. Ryu means Dragon and Un means clouds.
The following is the translation of her certificate.
This person is deemed excellent in the skill of calligraphy, so she passed the Master degree test of The Seventy Second Annual Shodo Shunju sha's exam. We give proof of her master degree.
