Urban samurai

More and more American urbanites are studying the Japanese art of kendo, or swordsmanship:

There is the money manager who credits kendo with keeping him sharp when making crucial investment decisions. There is the architect who says kendo enables him to handle high-pressure projects and harrowing deadlines. There is the Brooklyn woman who sleeps with her kendo sword next to her bed for security.

Any excuse to whack someone else with a stick, eh?
