Minamoto Yoshitsune should not have been a samurai. But his story is legend. When Yoshitsune was just a baby, his father went to war with a rival samurai family-and lost. Yoshitsune was sent away to live in a monastery. He grew up skinny and small. Not the warrior type. But he did inherit his family pride and when the time came for the Minamoto to rise up against their enemy once again, Yoshitsune was there. His daring feats secured Yoshitsune's place in history and his story is still being told centuries later.
