Master swordsman Isao Machii, apparently with no real enemies on earth left with the skill to challenge him, has been brought to advertising fruit-filled breakfast pastries – Toaster Strudels – for money.
Machii practices the ancient art of Iaido. Despite the non-threatening, jumble of vowels name, Iaido is an ancient form of swordplay that demands incredible discipline.

And here we can’t even hold an umbrella for 30 seconds without pretending it’s a shotgun.
Anyway, if you’re still not convinced of Isao’s skills, you can watch this (possibly somewhat embellished) video of him slicing a BB gun pellet in half:
