LIMITED EDITION – The Seven Samurai
The Seven Tenets of Bushido
The legendary Samurai were truly one of history’s greatest warrior cultures. Born of a society fueled by warfare and found absolute obedience to honor and loyalty, the Samurai were both feared and revered by all classes of citizenry in feudal Japan. The legends and stories of the Samurai to this day, dominate any discussion of the ideals and principles of what any warrior should live by and express.
The Samurai lived by a strict code of conduct called Bushido – The Way of The Warrior. The Code of Bushido consisting of seven tenets was the backbone of the very ideals that represented, defined, and restrained these fierce warriors.
The seven tenets were
1. “Gi” – Rectitude
2. “Yu” – Valor
3. “Jin” – Benevolence
4. “Rei” – Respect
5. “Makoto” – Honesty
6. “Meiyo” – Honor
7. “Chugi” – Loyalty
We will be releasing seven Samurai shirts, one each month representing the heart and soul of the Samurai Warrior and his ideals. Each shirt will have a unique and beautiful depiction of the Samurai and the back is printed in blood red, with the character Bushi, meaning warrior, and seven characters representing the seven tenets of Bushido. These are unique beautifully crafted designs that any warrior will be proud to wear. I know I am.
LIMITED EDITION – “Jin” – Benevolence Samurai T-Shirt
Jin – Benevolence – an act of kindness all true warriors are bound to by their codes. All true warriors live by their codes, otherwise they would not be a warrior but rather, just a ruthless killer. The Samurai live by the code of Bushido and Jin was one of its tenants. All the real warriors that I have ever known, in spite of their battle skills, had a streak of kindness set hard and fast down the middle of their soul. This shirt featuring a rendition of a Samurai Warrior firing one of the earliest Japanese firearms represents the fourth tenant in our series, Jin. Ultra soft in a subdued maroon, the shirt features a flash of silver foil on the lettering about the Warrior. This is a beautiful shirt. Due to the nature of the foil applique, no two shirts are exactly alike. Yours may differ slightly from the one in the photo, which makes it truly unique just for you.
available in sizes S-2XL. Please note sizes above XL are an additional $3.00
