If you had to face off with a Samurai or a Native American Warrior (before they were overthrown by modern weaponry) and you had to use the weapons that they used, which would one you be the most intimidated by? The Samurai used all the same weapons as the Native Americans, yet they wore body armor. But, remember that the Japanese Samurai were all around 5'5-5'8 at the tallest and the Native American warriors were mostly between 5'10-6'4. An advantage with the Samurai is that they faced off with their enemies, while the Native Americans would blend with their environment, attack from trees, behind bushes or from underneath leaves. The advantage in fighting the Native Americans is that they were not as organized as the Samurai. Something to consider. Also, consider how Europe had to strike deal after deal with the Native Americans to defeat them and even then, Native Americans still exist today. The Samurai are extinct and were erased from the earth within 10 years. But, all of this aside . . . it would be a one-on-one fight. Who would you rather fight, using the same weapons that they used and why?
