As a boy Matthew Murdoch is caught in an accident involving radioactive waste.  The exposure to the chemicals makes Matt blind.  Overtime, Matt learns that his other senses have been drastically heightened.  He can smell like a blood hound, hear conversations from blocks away, and his sense of feel gives him dramatic control of his body.  In addition to his heightened senses he gains a radar sense that allows him to pin point the placement of objects in space.

Frank Miller
Writer Frank Miller took over writing the character in the 1980s.  These stories largely ignored the continuity of the earlier stories. Miller wrote a much darker anti hero version of Daredevil whose father was abusive.  This Daredevil would use guns when required.  The new dark image of Daredevil stuck and he remains one of the darker characters in the Marvel Universe.  Miller also introduces the Kingpin as the primary nemesis of Daredevil.

In the Miller story Daredevil receives special training from a branch of good ninjas called the Chaste.  The Chaste are a led by a wise, and powerful martial artist by the name Stick.  At one point Daredevil falls in love with another Stick protege the assassin ElektraElektra left the Chaste to join a the nemesis of the Chaste a group of bad ninjas called the Hand.  Elektra is brutally killed by another assassin Bullseye in the well known story of Daredevil #181.  The Hand is reoccuring villain of Daredevil over the years.
