Japanese warrior-aristocrats of medieval and early modern times.
Miyamoto Musashi and Saigo Takamori were great samurai.
A social class of Japan formed in the 12th century during the conflict between the Taira and Minamoto families during the Heian Era. The elite of society, they were the only class allowed to wear a sword in public (the longer katana and the shorter wakizashi). They refer to themselves as "bushi" rather than "samurai". Each samurai is trained in the art of warfare, martial arts, the sword, or the spear as well as in the way of Bushido. Each region developed their own unique style of swordsmanship or kenjutsu (such as Yagyu Shinkage-ryu as opposed to Itto-ryu) . The samurai is a cultural symbol of the ideal traits of the Japanese people- loyalty, honor,a centered mind, and attention to detail. During times of peace (Tokugawa Shogunate, 1600s+)the samurai would become artisans, farmers, or idlers (ronins/vagabonds). Their decline came in the late 19th century, with the Westernization of Japan and the advancements in weaponry.
Samurai during the 19th century spent more time drinking sake than fighting.
Feudal Japanese warriors, who followed Bushido, or the Way of the Warrior. Highly honorable fighters, they were skilled warriors and were fiercly loyal to their lords (Daimyo)
If shamed or ordered to, would commit seppuku.
a fuedal warrior that followed a strict code of moral conduct.They were extremely loyal to their leaders wheter it be a warlord or the emperor of japan.They were masters of the art of swordplay.They would not dishonor themselves by using fire arms either.The word samurai means "to serve".
equivalent to the knights of europe
Underrated Suzuki jeeplet with a huge following, known for it's off-road capabilities and ease of service, not popular with the yuppie street-SUV crowd for it's lack of 'Useful' Off-road accessories, like tv screens, 6-place climate controls, or heated leather seats. Amazingly enough an extremely versitile machine... not for the pavement wannabes.
"I ripped the side open on my cadillac SUV, trying to fit in a Samurai-sized gap in the rocks."
The best warriors ever. As for the whole ninja kicking there asses thing. That can be said about almost anyone I mean ninjas use sneaky instink kills. However if a ninja and samurai fought face to face then the samurai would easily wipe the floor with those sneaky bastards.
Tom Cruise is NOT a samurai
The feudal, honorable warriors of Japan, equivalent to European knights. They were a class of nobles, highest in the system set by Tokugawa. They were honorable, powerful, and courageous fighters, quite different from ninja, who were the skilled assassins with little to no honor. I believe each side could take on the other, personaly.
The samurai were very brave warriors, 'nuff said. No flames about ninjas beating them!
