How did samurai begin?
In Japanese culture, there were some, they were known as "Onna bugeisha"(female warrior) They often protected homes, family, and in war. Mostly, they were Widows, wives, and r…ebels.
For over 1000 years, the samurai were the military nobility of Japan. They lived and died by a disciplined, spiritual code called "Bushido" (meaning "way of the warrior"). Ski…lled with swords, horses, and bows, these men served their lords. The term samurai means "one who serves," a samurai maintained that title until he had no lord or employer, where they were then called ronin.

The Japanese knights. Taught never to surrender and never to retreat, they would commit suicide if they were defeated or ashamed and so, they became the worlds most deadly war…riors. They had the strongest swords in the world, they lived by the code bushido.
The Samurai class developed through various stages beginning with the reformation period of the mid 7th century AD, up to their end in 1877. The term "Samurai" means "to serve… nobility." Initially, the wealthy land owners of the 7th century needed protection, so they paid skilled warriors (sometimes their own relatives or just hired swordsmen) to defend their land and wealth. This lowly warrior class lived by a motto to serve their lords, and fight to the death. By the 900's, the ruling class and Emperor of Japan had lost much power in rural areas, and the Samurai took over to become a more powerful and prominent warrior class. By 1100, the Samurai also held some political offices and virtually ran the country by military rule. As clans of royal families fought for power, their own warrior class was most likely made up of family members trained to be Samurai. In the later part of the 12th century AD, the ruling class instituted the title of "Shogunate," where the "Shogun" (Military Generals) held ever changing power as a military dictators. The Shogun often fought to put down rebellion of other Samurai clans and tribes vying for power over Japan. Over the next several centuries, various clans gained and lost control of the country with their own Shogun and Samurai being in charge until the decline of the Samurai and Shogunate during the Meiji Restoration of the mid 19th century. Most of the Samurai were likely groomed from the children born in each clan's village, and trained in horseback riding, archery, and swordsmanship to become warriors, and Samurai serving their lords. The Samurai of the Emperor where likely relatives of the ruling family.

first, they followed a set of rules called the bushido, which was a code of honor. But, in physical, living and vital terms they answered to the daimyo, who were powerful terr…itorial lords. These answered to the shogan (bakufu in japan) which were much like generals in modern euro-american equivalency. And finally they all answered to the Emperor, which were defiantly put on a pedestal throughout time (for example became known as Son of Heaven in the 7th century, this was three centuries before the time of the samurai, but yet they were not named this unit roughly the 13th century. A Samurai, Daimyo and Shogan would give their life for their superiors, even if it meant plunging their own weapon into their stomachs. Though, I believe that the samurai were the most trained and by far the greatest military of their time.
The shogun is a lord who hires the Samurai to protect and fight for him. He pays them :)
