The Takeda Clan ruled from the Kai Province for 400 years (12th – 16th century), rising quickly to become one of the mightiest clans in all of Feudal Japan. Their clan motto was “Loyalty and Fraternity”, and they were known for their powerful cavalry charge. The distinctive hue of their armor earned them the nickname of “The Red Army”. They carried a Clan banner which stated “fu rin ka zan” (wind, forest, fire, mountain) which means “Swift as the Wind, Silent as the Forest, Intrusive as Fire, and Immovable as a Mountain” – strong, noble words for a strong, noble clan.
