(Nhà tài trợ: cty kiến trúc nhà số 1 tphcm) - The young samurai was brought up in the family of a mentor, a warrior who was for him an example of valor, honor and courage. The military ideal of the samurai was formed on the Buddhist indifference to death, mythical tales, Confucian respect for elders, one's family, and a purely Japanese basis - strict loyalty to one's master. The mentor and his family cared, first of all, about the formation of the character of the young man, who was to become brave, courageous, fearless, physically hardy and dexterous. In order to serve his master with honor, the pupil read stories and stories about the brave and warlike samurai of the past, attended the corresponding theatrical performances. The spirit of the young man was tempered in ways that would seem rather cruel to modern man. For example, a mentor or father encouraged him to go to places that had a bad reputation, such as a cemetery. The boys attended public punishments and executions, examined the severed heads of criminals in order to get used to the sight of suffering and not be afraid of bloody spectacles. The deprivation of tasty food, good clothes, and the patience of various inconveniences were also encouraged. The samurai training implied that the samurai must constantly improve the body and spirit. It's not just about martial arts exercises. Samurai were trained in calligraphy, versification, tea ceremony. Many of them knew how to paint pictures in monochrome ink, knew how to compose ikebana and were well versed in literature.
