In case anyone's wondering about the Chinese ideograms featured in the calligraphy pane of Simon's video, here's a more complete explanation (from my post in the Facebook group The Pete Atkin and Clive James Appreciation Society on May 28th).
 
The inscription reads, in Japanese, 'Aikido', which is the name of a modern Japanese martial art.
The three kanji (assimilated Chinese characters) carry the same meanings as in Chinese:  
 
- Japanese ai - Pinyin h - close, unite, join (v);
- Japanese ki - Pinyin q - air, spirit, life force (n);
- Japanese do - Pinyin do - way, path, road (n).

(The third character is incomplete in the above still from the video).
 
So, in universal mystic poetic/exotic-sounding oriental-speak the meaning can be rendered as 'The Path of Unifying Energy'. Or something.
