I was recently given a shirt with this writing on the sleeve. I love the shirt but would like to know what it says.

Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Jon

discipline/training
Thank you very much. Just for clarification, does each symbol mean one word? Or it is used as in "martial arts training/martial arts discipline" interchangeably

It's a two-character compound word, meaning "discipline" or "training" (it can also mean tempering/forging in metallurgy, though).
