I understand absolutely nothing of this
I understand absolutely nothing of this. Could someone with knowledge of Kuji-kiri edit it into comprehensibility? --220.127.116.11 10:09, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
Ouch, this article issimply embarassing. 18.104.22.168 20:53, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
The redirect was incorrect Kuji-in and Kuji-kiri are different subjects. --Masssiveego 17:05, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
Using Ashida Kim as a reference is doubly embarassing.--22.214.171.124 00:55, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
Agreed. Absolutely silly. I -have- heard of classical schools including secret gestures or mudra-type positions within the curriculum, as an innner teaching or a "secret handshake". But this is clearly that idea taken to ridiculous heights. "Ninja Mind Control"? --GenkiNeko 21:37, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
- ugh, Ninjitsu? That's probably due to Eric van Lustbader. The Ninja was a good book but the rest of the series went downhill. Cole (talk) 06:09, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Skepticism and Stupidity
While it is intelligent to ask that exceptional claims be backed by exceptional proof, where there is a lack of any substantive claim, there is no need of proof. (Can you prove that Jesus' father wasn't a Roman citizen, just as Saul's was?)Further, as there is no valid negative proof ("X does not exist."), I suggest that you forebear on casting aspersions just for the nonce; better than proving "it" to everyone within earshot.

- What proof? Are there any claims made here? Confused. Kortoso (talk) 19:17, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
- The practice of Kuji-kiri is a mystical ritual. It's just what people do. Nobody claims that it has any scientific validity. Stack it next to prayer and meditation. Kortoso (talk) 20:46, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
