Samurai 侍 were the military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan.

In Japanese, they are usually referred to as bushi 武士,  or buke 武家 was originally a verb meaning 'to wait upon', 'accompany persons' in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, saburau. The terms were nominalised to mean 'those who serve in close attendance to the nobility',

By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi, and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai were usually associated with a clan and their lord, and were trained as officers in military tactics and grand strategy. While the samurai numbered less than 10% of then Japan's population, their teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern Japanese martial arts.
