Japanese samurai is so great and incredible all the times. He or she is categorized in the elite military class, especially in feudal Japan times. A lot of thousand-year-old history stories have shaped up because of them until our century and the future too. Hence, the “Samurai” impact is so successfully long-lasting.
Samurai martial arts are admired as the greatest example in today’s modern world culture. Not only the historical achievements, but also the spirit in their teachings is what we could learn and apply in our life. As the middle or upper echelon among all warrior classes, they are expected to be bounded by a set of rules in order to behold their brave and loyalty. Many, or most, Japanese will still hold the morale of samurai arts ever in both everyday life and modernized martial art lessons.
Let’s know more about these Samurai warriors. They are the followers of The Way of The Warrior which is known as “Bushido” in Japan. In fact, it sounds as the word – “Chivalry” in the European medieval period. It means the philosophical foundation or code of conduct for a Japanese samurai warrior. Therefore, Bushido must be strictly followed to discipline up the life of Japanese samurai, including moral code of loyalty, martial arts, honor and so on. Samurais devote their life to their patriotic and military duties. It is all about “freedom from fear”. This kind of Bushi spirit is worthy to be kept along the journey of modernization.
Samurai martial arts, traditionally, are for those who serve in close attendance to the nobility. Now, the Japanese samurai affection has obviously spanned over the globe and become the international samurai arts. Under the comparison, the influence scale is larger in most Asian countries. Even so, the Japanese samurai character is quite unique and will not confuse you with any other characters.

Samurai arts, either manual or digital, try hard to reveal their powers and strengths. As a respect, the artists will not neglect any detail-rich elements from the Samurai wearing to their use of fascinating weapons. Their armors inside samurai arts are mostly inclusive of various short and long swords, pole arms, firearms, bows and arrows.
