The Similarities between Samurai and Knights
The Similarities between Samurai and Knights
By: Parker Ayres
A knights' training began at the age of 5 or 6 with learning how to ride a pony. Next, by 7 or 8, he would work as a page to his father's overlord or relative. As doing that he would run errands, practice with wooden swords, refining his horse skills, and receiving religious instruction. Then by, 14 he would be able to become a squire and squires continued on with weapons training and accompanying their master into battle by dressing him, feeding him, and caring for his horses. Finally, if deemed worthy he would become a knight around 21.
That's just some history on their training and history to become one of those two people, now let the journey begin.
Training to become a Samurai
Samurais trained all their life to become one. They didn't just train fighting though, while growing up school for a samurai was a unique combination of physical training, poetry, and spiritual discipline. Samurais also studied the art of fencing with bamboo sticks (Kendo), the moral code of the samurai, and Zen Buddhism.
The Code of Bushido:
The business of the samurai consists in discharging loyalty to his master, if he has one, in deepening loyalty also with his associations and friends. Also devoting himself to duty above all. However in his own life he's unavoidably involved in family obligations and should always confine himself practicing the Way. He outwardly stands in physical readiness for any call to the service and strives to fulfill the Way.
Knights in training
The Code of Chilvary:
Every knight took the vows of true knighthood, solemnly promising to do no wicked deed, to be loyal to the king, to give mercy to those who ask for it, always be courteous and helpful to ladies, and to fight in no wrongful quarrel.
Both samurai and knights had code of conduct or warrior code as some might say, that they had to follow.
Another similarity between samurai and knights were that they both showed loyalty to their masters always and forever.
The last similarity is that both samurai and knights wore amour to protect every part of them, when fighting or in battle.
