Hasami Shogi is an interesting game, I don´t know about the origins, but it
is very different from Shogi, so the name could be any other not associated
with Shogi.There are other similar games. I have read that 
Mak-yek is played in Siam (and Malaysia under the name Apit-sodok) with
the same goal, on the same board, but the 16 stones of each player are
placed on the first and third row. The moves are the same, but the capture
is custodian and also by intervention. Intervention capture is the opposite
of custodian. If a stone moves between two enemy stones, it captures both
stones. I have not played these variants, but my intuition says to me that
they can be much more violent than HS.
