We Walk In The Ways Of The Bushido, The Samurai Code. We Are The "Wave Men". We Are the Ronin. We Are Warriors Without Lands Of Our Own. We Are Warriors Without Masters. We Embody The Samurai Spirit. We Share With You Our Values So That You Too May Know:

Honor
Courage
Loyalty
Sacrifice
Duty
Persistence
Valor
Pride
Compassion
Family

Join Us In Our Bond, Our Oaths. Our Story Is The Chushingura. In Its Telling, The Chushingura Reveals Our Hearts And Our Souls. We Must Be Intimate With Death, For:

"As long as you keep death in mind at all times, you will fulfill the ways of loyalty and familial duty. You will also avoid myriad evils and calamities, you will be physically sound and healthy, and you will live a long life. What is more, your character will improve and your virtue will grow.

If people comfort their minds with the assumption that they will live a long time, something might happen, because they think they will have forever to do their work and look after their parents-they may fail to perform for their employers and also treat their parents thoughtlessly.

But if you realize that the life that is here today is not certain on the morrow, then when you take your orders from your employer, and when you look in on your parents, you will have the sense that this may be the last time-so you cannot fail to become truly attentive to your employer and your parents. This is why we say you also fulfill the paths of loyalty and familial duty when you keep death in mind."


In the End We Meet At Sengaku-Ji As Heroes, Every One of Us, Immortalized For Eternity.

Thanks guys. I remember writing this but I'd forgotten just how much love and care I'd put into it. The Ronin, the 47 plus or minus, those that have fought, those fight, and those fighters yet to stand with us...are family recognized by those values we share moreso than by the blood we may share, whether that which courses through our bodies or that which is taken from our enemies to be spilled at their feet. We join for sport or fun. We join for honor. We Honor ourselves when we honor our alliances. Thanks to Faint for pointing me back to here. I am reminded.
