One of the most satisfying elements of this text is it is written for both those interested in learning kuji, as well as those (like myself) who simply wish to better understand the subject. Within the pages you will find: what is the difference between kuji-kiri and kuji-in? Is this a Buddhist or secular practice? Do all Buddhists practice/believe in kuji? Is kuji sorcery, spell casting, or witchcraft? and much more.
In some martial arts circles, the kuji is a hotly debated topic. But most are spouting uninformed opinions. I'm happy to have found James Clum’s book. I can now safely ignore the preposterous claims made from uninformed armies of Internet trolls.
Whether your interest originates from martial arts, religious, academic, or cultural reasons, Kuji: A Spiritual Path is an outstanding resource. Clearly written, amply illustrated, and well presented, this is a must have addition to any library that covers these areas. I wish such a resource were available to me 30 years ago, but I am happy to accept this gift with enthusiasm. (And bonus points for all of the citations, for both written and for graphic/photo images. A+ on good ethics here).
