What is a Samurai?

In Japanese, they are usually referred to as bushi (武士?, (Bu.6il) or buke (武家?). According to translator. The character was originally a verb meaning “to wait upon” or “accompany persons” in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, Saburau. In both countries the terms were nominalized to mean “those who serve in close attendance to the nobility”, the pronunciation in Japanese changing to Saburai. According to Wilson, an early reference to the word “samurai” appears in the Kokin Wakashu (905–914), the first imperial anthology of poems, completed in the first part of the 10th century.

By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi, and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai were usually associated with a clan and their lord, were trained as officers in military tactics and grand strategy, and they followed a set of rules that later came to be known as the bushido. While the samurai numbered less than 10% of then Japan’s population, their teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern Japanese Martial arts.

Samurai’s would obey their lord and follow any order as their lord insists. They were really clever and that they knew how to use a sword from their tutors that would help them to become stronger and better soldiers. Warriors and Samurai’s are 2 different things because Warriors go on battleships or a boat to charge one and another, but on the other hand Samurai’s can find their way through anything and they are really skillful and has a really great mind to think things out.

Samurai’s are also better than Warriors because sometimes warriors can’t think things right and they do something without even thinking what will happen next after they do what they were supposed to do. Samurai’s are really good at fighting and that they are really strong to, sometimes they can just think ahead and do something that they are supposed to do but you can never try and trick a Samurai that easily.

Here are some pictures of how a Samurai looks like. You could see by the way that they dress, but that is just how Samurai’s use to look like but they still look like that and they still exist in this world but they are hiding somewhere at an unknown location.
