What does 天下 (TenShita) Mean? My first guess would be "Below the Skies" or something like that, but the way it's used (around fighting dojos and stuff) make me question if I'm right or not, though it could make sense...

Ever played Virtua Fighter? That was my achilles heal in Japan. One of the characters victory taunts was 天下無双.
