They had been moreover very successfully educated and had very good manners. Knights had been positioned in Europe and samurai had been in Japan. They every rode horses in battle and they fought with true spirit for the consideration and dignity of their nation.
Are you sure that you want to delete this answer? Yes Sorry, something has gone wrong. Ninja's were no Battlefield warriors, Ninjas were just assassins made of farm folk, they blended in the crowds and would take a plowing item and try and kill lords and generals. First Part is a fantasy thing.
That is all untrue about climbing with bare and stuff. They were also not gorilla fighters, and in it Horsed knights, were Calvary units they pretty much were the ones to clean up the battlefield over anything else, they were not the first runners in they were the janitors of the party.
I can't say much on the squire bit, partially that is true. Wrestling in Schools is actually European Martial Arts. Kung Fu and Karate, are more liked because it not all about grappling and hitting, it more focus on defensive and style, making it more entertaining and useful Plus it not dirty like pinning someone down and smashing a elbow into there head and throat.
They are very similar with different types of combat. They were trained young, they were trained in tactics for there type of environment. Both had their own styles, of combat. Now to compare them I go first with armor. Samurai Armor people think it is light.
Samurai armor was actually as heavy as a Full Chainmail Knight, around pounds. That weight because of how scarce of Iron was in japan, they never really got to change anything much and weighting was equal. Though European had tons of iron to test things out. They over itme made armor more protective, while reducing weight by making stronger but lighter steels.
Full Plate ranged around pounds, at it's peak, and can stop almost anything. Sword vs Sword, this I would have to say the more controversial one. Katana, tachis, or what ever sword the Samurai went to use, was a tempered steel edge, folded on a untreated steel, or even a other hard metal backing.
Because of this, a Katana edge can be sharped fine with out any repercussions unlike the Longsword, but overall it was a less resistant blade, Samurai sword got bent, they would need it reforged, Longswords would be more flexible because of it fully tempered steel, a hit that would a Katana, would flex with the Longsword and the Longsword would bend back straight.
Weight wise Longswords, were versatile enough that it could be held in one hand or two, and feel like part of the arm, while Katana weighting was more on to the edge, one handed wise it was clumsy. Other Weapons, was pretty similar to each other, they had there Greatswords mainly to handle spears, they had their type of daggers, they had their own types of maces for almost the same ideas.

Samurai were expected to live according to Bushido, a strict ethical code influenced by Confucianism that stressed loyalty to one's master, respect for one's superior, ethical behavior in all aspects of life, and complete self-discipline.

Aug 21, · European Knights Versus Japanese Samurai. I believe it was the great Monty Python who made famous the phrase, “And now for something completely different.” But there is more to say: the European knights and the Japanese samurai had entirely different uses on a battlefield.
Both were at their best on horseback. Samurai and Knights were different but the similarities were greater because of their rankings, training, armor, fighting technique, code of honor, and death viewpoint.
