I wrote ‘Kuji-kiri’. It means Nine symbolic cuts in English. It is Japanese occult art. ‘Ku’ means Nine ‘Ji’ means Symbol or Character ‘Ki’ means Cut ‘Ri’ is Hiragana Exactly, this art is called ‘Kuji-Goshinhou’. It has two ways. The one way to make a chopping motion, it is called as ‘Kuji wo Kiru’. The another way to make symbolic signs with the fingers, it is called as ‘Kuji wo Musubu’.
