The article aims at presenting Indian and Japanese warrior codes. After explaining the characteristics of codes of ethics which constitute parts of professional codes of ethics, the article emphasizes the importance of warrior codes as elements of the ethics of struggle. The issues are discussed on the basis of soothing factors distinguished by Maria Ossowska, excerpts from 'The Laws of Manu', Indian epic 'Mahabharata', and 'bushido' clan codes. The codes set limits that must not be violated by a warrior, and ideals that should be pursued by him. The history of customs of medieval samurai warriors gives examples of discrepancies between values proposed by 'bushido' and the ones implemented by samurai warriors. However, today the old values have influence on western culture by means of martial arts and fighting sports.
