10 Female Samurai While strictly a masculine term, the Japanese bushi class did have women who received similar Samurai training. These were called “Onna-Bugeisha,” and were known to participate in combat with their male Samurai. Weapon of choice was usually the naginata, a spear with a curved, sword-like blade that was versatile, & relatively light. Battle site Senbon Matsubaru remains were DNA tested & 35 of 105 bodies were female.

Rare photograph of an Onna-bugeisha, female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan. Often mistakenly referred to as “female samurai”, female warriors have a long history in Japan, beginning long before samurai emerged as a warrior class.
