Hello, young samurai boys today you are going to be taught how to be professional soldiers.
This is your future Daimyo, Akimoto Hirotomo, you must protect him during conflicts, and value his interests.
You are meant to defend your daimyo from any dangers and the nation from invasion. You will become professional warriors and swear on the oath of loyalty to protect your own daimyo.
Today's lesson we will be using our samurai swords which are also known as katana. They can be used as self defence and as a weapon against surrounding dangers.
You will follow a code know as bushido which means 'The way of the warrior'.
This is fun and all but i wish i was the shogun so i could become a military leader.
This is so cool! I can't wait for our next lesson.
Hello otokos, today's lesson is horse riding with a bow and arrow. Horses are the special weapons and only samurai are allowed to ride horses in battle. Yabusame is a type of mounted archery where an archer shoots an arrow while the horse is running.
Is it true that the samurai are divided into two classes and only the upper classes are allowed to ride horses?
I hope i don't become a ronin one day because they are a masterless samurai, they're basically unemployed warriors and thats not good.
Yes Enomoto, that is true.
