Samurai warriors

Those people who fight to the last breath are the model for many young generations since ancient times. Many boys imagine themselves as famous warriors – I’ve always imagine myself as samurai warrior.  They are always portrayed as a tireless, brave and honored soldiers, but also as very educated men, often depicted as poets or painters. I’ll just give you few facts about samurai, I will not bore you with stories about Oda, Toyotomi and Tokugawa periods, or the greatest of samurai warrior Miyamoto Musashi.

The samurai (the word ‘samurai’ is derived from the Japanese verb ‘sabu’, meaning ‘to serve’) were the members of the military class, the Japanese warriors. They employed a range of weapons such as bows and arrows, and spears; but their most famous weapon and their symbol were the swords – katana, wakizashi and tanto. Samurai were supposed to lead their lives according to the ethic code of bushido (“bushi-do” – “the way of the warrior”), and were expected to set an example for those below them. Bushido stressed concepts such as loyalty to one’s master, self discipline and respectful, ethical behavior.

Attendant to your nobility
Ask for your master’s umbrella
The dews ‘neath the trees of Miyagino
Are thicker than rain
(poem 1091)
