Hey, I remeber a movie I saw in the 80's with Charles Bronson. The movie was called "Kinjite - The forbiben Object" It was about kidnapping a little girl and Charles had to rescue her. But that's not what this definition in the dictionary says! What is the real maening of this Japanses word?

It means...[edit]

"forbidden technique/move/hand"

The first character 禁じ means 'forbidden' and you most often see it on signs that say 'no trespassing' or 'no smoking.' The second character means 'hand' which could also be considered 'move' I suppose. The second character 手 does not solely represent the actual hand or arm of a person, but also to indicate skill, technique, or various other things.

If you have Japanese support enabled on your browser, you can go to this page to get a list of all kanji compounds that include the hand character. As you can see, it has lots of different uses.


Is biting forbidden? I would expect it to be banned, since it is normally in the same category as eye gouging and "below the belt" attacks, which are banned in sumo wrestling. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:54, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
