What is Bushido?
Bushido is the 1,000-year-old Japanese code of conduct that nobles were required to observe and today is still practiced by men all over the world. It combined the fierce ways of the samurai class with the more serene and spiritual teachings of Zen-Buddhism and Confucianism. Above all, the code stressed “frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery, and honor unto death,” and the ethos is still cherished in Japanese society today

Loyalty - Honor - Bravery - Respect - Benevolence - Honesty - Rectitude
