The samurais (the military servants) were a Japanese privileged military estate. They lived according to their own code of honor, the bushido, the word meaning "the way of warrior". The main aim of the samurai was faithful service to his master, daime (prince) or a shogun (a military leader in Japan). The most spread weapons were the bow and the spear (yari). The sword was also a very important part of the samurai's armament. The most desperate and fine swordsmen were samurais armed with the nodati, a long two-handled sword. Even experienced warriors could hardly resist their attacks. Some samurais could use the naginata, a sword fastened to a long wooden stick. Masterly warriors combined a powerful hit of the long sword in attack and its defense qualities. But not only samurais took part in marches and battles. Many daimes recruited peasants, work-ing on their land, who wanted to take a military career, and taught them. These troops were called "ashigaru" (light-feeted) because they were lightly armored and could move quickly on the battle-field. In the middle of the XVI century there appeared fire weapons in the Japanese armies, harquebu- siers. This weapon was used both by samurais and ashigaru. It took only several days to teach a former peasant how to use a harquebus, so Shootings table later mostly ashigaru were armed with it. Each daime created his own army fighting with his flag. Each warrior had a special sign with her daime's coat of arms on his back. Noble samurais guarded their daime or served as junior commanders in his army. They had the strongest armor and were better warriors.
