Greetings from Solveig!
The fundamental flaw that I possibly see with this article is the
possibility of misidentifying "samurai" with "knights" when the
samurai class should be identified with a class which includes
yoemen. Basically, the samurai were a large class which included
people whom you would think of as men at arms. The "knights"
of medieval Europe are a somewhat more elite group which
does not correspond with KSCA as KSCA corresponds more
closely to elite orders of knighthood such as the Order of the
Bath. Well, that's my two cents worth.
