Landless or masterless peasant soldiers or samurai who through dishonor or the loss of their masters were forced to wander Japan until some other lord would accept their services.
It was difficult for ronin to find new employment.

1. Masterless Samurai traditional japanese<BR><BR>
2. from a type of KULT members, the modern equivelent - a soldier who fights for causes felt honourable - without any in command of tse. A collection of Ronin are dangerous in that their ideals are persued until you kill/take down every last one of them, compared to a modern/postmodern military in that if you take a command structure down, the army falls apart. since there is no command structure, each ronin attempts to use their respective resources to accomplish whatever is desired. bound by the ronin bushido, a document sworn to by old school KULT ronins

A dishonoured or masterless samari forced to wander around feudal Japan doing mercenary work. Basically a badass swinging a sword around killing any fucker who gets in his way.
If you get in his way that ronin will be the last thing your puny balls will ever see!

Rō-nin or rou-nin. lit. "wave man"

Ronin means a samurai who has no masters or has lost his master. No longer has a clear course and is carried by wherever the waves take him.
Miyamoto Musashi is probably the most famous Ronin known.

In modern world it can be referred to various things:
1. A freelance worker
2. A spy who's been disavowed by government
3. Husbands who've been thrown out of the house by their wives
4. A pretty good movie with Robert De Niro, Sean Bean and Jean Reno.
Seriously go see Ronin. It's an awesome movie.

This is a Japanese slang. Ronin means a person who failed college exam and will take exam again next year. Usually they try to attend a good university like University of Tokyo or medical college.
She is ronin.
