Now, we're not trying to start a duel here, but we tried to get an interview with the Metro Light Rail ninja earlier this week -- and exposed his identity on this blog yesterday morning -- but the man who likes to be called "Kairo" apparently likes TV.

"Kairo" made an appearance on 12 News' 10 p.m. newscast yesterday, and talked about his strategic swordsmanship on the light rail, in which he apparently broke up a fight between other people on the train.

Now, you can hear about his "five-stage plan," including how he was ready to poke just about anyone with that sword, and his intention to just slice some guy in half, thanks to 12 News.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
