Best Answer

Samurai prioritized martial skills and military training as they were warriors in feudal Japan. They valued physical strength, combat abilities, and loyalty to their lord over scholarly or intellectual pursuits favored by Confucian scholars that were more focused on moral cultivation and governance.

Why did samurai reject Confucianism?

First of all, we'd have to consider whether or not the Samurai (Japanese) paid any attention whatsoever to the writings of Confucious (Chinese). If they did, then we could say they rejected Confucianism probably because the Samurai were very militaristic by nature - kind of like the U. S. Marine Corps of ancient Japan. Confucianism has little that is militaristic or aggressive in any aspect of it's teachings. The Samurai likely looked at Confucianism as "wimpy" - if they looked at it at all.
