I don't understand the logic of your assumptions. This isn't a night club - it's a training venue. They ALREADY train people in swordsmanship and martial arts.

I think you're the one who should prepare themselves for the 'shock'.
The thing is with Swordsmanship... its not possible to harm another person unless you're stupid.

The only 'legal' swordsmanship offered here is Iaido... which is basically drawing your sword really quickly.. swinging it around... and putting it back in the scabbard quickly.

Theres also Kendo and Fencing... but Kendo uses blunt sticks and fencing you have armor on.

The only way I can see Airsoft institutions being opened is if the participants are required to wear a full suit of ballistic armor.
