Onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional "housewife" role of the Japanese woman.

10th Dan Meijin Katsuo Yamaguchi. My family and I had the immense privilege of staying at Master Yamaguchi's home with him and his wife many years ago. His very kind and hospitable son helped to guide us around Tokyo. A wonderful martial artist and a sincerely wonderful human being (and family).
