"...You are so done!.."

Salt lake city – A samurai sword-wielding mormon bishop helped a neighbor woman escape a tuesday morning attack by a man who had been stalking her.



Kent Hendrix woke up tuesday to his teenage son pounding on his bedroom door and telling him somebody was being mugged in front of their house. The 47-year-old father of six rushed out the door and grabbed the weapon closest to him -- a 29-inch high carbon steel samurai sword.

He came upon what he describes as a melee between a woman and a man. His son stayed inside to call 911 while he approached the man along with other neighbors who came to help. The martial arts instructor didn't hesitate in drawing the sword and yelling at him to get on the ground.

"His eyes got as big as saucers and he kind of gasped and jumped back," Hendrix said by phone tuesday afternoon. "He's probably never had anyone draw a sword on him before."

The man ran down the street with the barefoot Hendrix and others in pursuit. Hendrix said he couldn't catch the man before he fled in his car, but he picked up chapstick that the man dropped and memorized his license plate.

"I yelled at him, `I've got your dna and I've got your license plate: You are so done,"' hendrix said.

I like it!

The stalker turned himself into the police within the hour. He probably drove straight to the police station thinking it would be best to deal with the police vs a sword weilding morman bishop.

Hendrix, a pharmaceutical statistician, and a bishop in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said it was the first time in 30 years of practicing martial arts that he's used the sword. He didn't swing it at the man, only showing him he had it.

"His eyes got as big as saucers and he kind of gasped and jumped back," Hendrix said by phone Tuesday afternoon. "As he was coming through the fence, this is where I drew down on him and told him to get down on the ground," Hendrix told Fox13Now.com. He continued, "he was staring down 29 inches of razor."

A fourth-degree black belt in the Kishindo form of martial arts, Hendrix owns a collection of swords and weapons that he trains with, said his wife, Suzanne Hendrix. He has trained with the sword he used Tuesday for 20 years and keeps it by his bed.

"Some people have bats they go to," said Hendrix. "I have my sword."
A pharmaceutical statistician, fourth-degree black belt Mormon Bishop swordsman?

There's something you don't run across every day...

Definitely an attention getter. Up close and personal, no chance of a misfire. They use to grade Katanas by how many bodies they would cut through. If you had a four body blade, you had something. You can possibly survive a gun shot, but the only way to survive a serious encounter with a Katana, is not get hit.
