The Samurai Warriors were warriors fight for their master (landlord) .At first everyone could be a Samurai Warrior including peasants, but then things change only landowners and those that were born in the Samurai class could be one. Warring clans used to control the most part of Japan. There was not a lot space for farming because all the land was being destroyed by the attacks from the warring clans(invaders), and that gave rise to the Samurai. The Samurai Warriors were on top of the social order.
The samurai were élite warriors in Japan during the 1200’s to the early 1700’s. Fifth century Japan saw conflicts with Korea and China, but Japan had a very untrained army, with a clumsy Calvary, and poor infantry men (Blumberg 1). The reason was that horses were seen as a burden and were never bred to be strong, fast, and large for war purposes (Blumberg 2). In the 6th and 9th centuries, a series of rebellions in Japan began from the Emishi people of the northern home islands; these country people were very well-trained in mounted archery. The nimble Emishi would defeat the Japanese riders with ease (Blumberg 2).

I also learned the Japan was in a very confusing time, I say this because there are not many places that will have jobs for people who do literally nothing almost at all times of the year. This was one of the reasons that things were crazy enough for the peasants, they had so many people to deal with that had an over-glorified title who would ultimately take what they wanted, even though this was not their way of life as a
Ninjas and samurais were Japan’s most feared warriors. Samurais and ninjas had different backgrounds and roots, they had their own style of combat and tactics, they used different weapons, they had different customs and rituals, and finally they were considered good or evil. Even thought they were very different they had some similarities because they were both warriors that developed unique fighting techniques to combat against enemies. Both ninjas and samurais are viewed as incredible warriors and everyone knows the basics, but many people don’t know that they are very different. In ancient Japan a ninja was like todays spies, they were considered mysterious assassins.

In Europe and Japan, there are constant warfare that are made warriors in the society and are also the most important class in Japan and Europe. These warriors are named as “Samurai” in Japan and “Knights” in Europe. Class Division in Japan and Europe There are majorly four tiers class system being used in Japan and Europe.

The struggle during the Middle Ages is what causes people (mostly peasants) to want to believe in the story of Robin Hood. The fall of Rome in 476 A.D. to people needing protection against invaders and attackers. This was a great struggle for many people, either find protection, fight for yourself, or get killed by invaders. In the legend of Robin Hood, Robin protected the people with his master archery and gave them support by giving them money that he stole from the rich. The fall of Rome also contributed to no central government which caused most of daily life to be disorganised, since there is no clear set of rules and no basic schedule for people to do what.
In order to execute a successful charge, knights needed to have the most effective weapons that could easily ram into the enemy. [The lance was made of steel and was developed in the 14th century. The development of the lance rest made wielding the lance much easier to handle and control. It was also more effective when charging because the knight could drive the lance into the enemy with the power of the horse at full gallop.

They did find jobs; however, they were the left over jobs no Americans wanted like clearing out mountains for the railways with dynamite. These dangerous jobs were really the only jobs that the Japanese had to choose from due to the extreme racism they faced in America. The Americans, who were not fond of the Japanese people, feared that American jobs belonged to the American people and not immigrants who had little training. When the United States passed the Immigration Act of 1924, many Japanese immigrants seeking economic opportunity were sent back home and were not allowed to live in America. After this Act was passed, not as many Japanese citizens were allowed into the country.
