It would be no exaggeration to say that Ushiwakamaru (Minamoto no Yoshitsune) is the most famous military commander in Japanese history. Probably only someone like Oda Nobunaga possesses a popularity that rivals hers... however, there are many obscure points in regards to history, and especially the early half of her life from before raising an army is wrapped in mystery.
It has been told that at 11 years old, while she was under the care of the Kurama Temple, Ushiwakamaru met with the onmyouji Kiichi Hougen (some theories say that he was also the Kurama Tengu) and was awarded with the arts of war. While there is no doubt that she was an excellent tactician, Yoshitsune lacked something vital.
That is fear towards the battlefield. All through life, she was incompatible with the other military commanders. That Yorimoto even held killing intent towards Yoshitsune was probably something that she never came to understand in her entire life. For, since she was a genius, concern towards abilities was something that did not exist in her.
