OLN Learns the Way of the Samurai


Samurai Sportsman will debut on Outdoor Life Network Saturday, Jan. 31 at 9:30 p.m. EST/PST, the network said Wednesday.

The show features modern day Samurai Yoshi Amao combining martial-arts training with traditional American outdoor activities.

In each episode, Amao attempts a different outdoor activity while working closely with an expert who becomes the other main character of that episode.

"Given the Samurai’s reverence for nature, Yoshi is at one with the outdoors and quickly builds a rapport and relationship with OLN’s other hosts," network president and CEO E. Roger Williams said in a release. "He is adept with a range of weaponry: swords of all sizes and shapes, bows and arrows, and even guns."
