Ferocious in combat and driven by an unforgiving code of ethics, the samurai were mysterious masters of the sword and bow. They beat back foreign invaders and fought each other for land, status, honor and glory. Following in the footsteps of the most famous samurai of all time, Miyamoto Musashi, Samurai uses vivid animation to bring the fierce beauty of samurai culture to life. Warriors: Samurai Showdown explores the weaponry, tactics, training and secrets of Japan's fearless warriors with host and Green Beret Terry Schappert. Ancient Mysteries: Samurai! explores the enigmatic realm of beauty, adventure and sacrifice, where honor means more than life itself. In Human Weapon: Judo: Samurai Legacy hosts and seasoned fighters Jason Chambers and Bill Duff go to Japan to understand the techniques and history of Judo, the country's national martial art. In Masamune - Samurai Sword Master, today's martial-arts experts wield razor-sharp swords as they reveal the life of one of the greatest swordsmen of all time, the 13th-century samurai Masamune. And Samurai and the Swastika tells of the alliance between Germany and Japan in World War II, despite the ideological divide that separated the two countries.
