Sorry, my first instinct would be to pull the shotgun out of the vehicle and talk to him in a loud command voice from a distance.

Let's see fellow approaches with sword and acting in an aggressive manor. Hmm, says I. Bang, problem solved.

The guy couldn't handle his sword worth a stuff. Given that the other guy grabbed it by the blade, and didn't come away bleeding profusely leads me to believe it was a cheap Chinese knock off...

Pretty much nailed it. Had he known how he could have beat the fellow to death with the flat.

A good swordsman can beat you badly with a 3 foot long wooden dowel if they want, and if you are untrained. Of course, a well trained gunman with a gun in hand can be deadly. Pull a sword on me and attack, and you better time it well and know what you are doing. If you make a mistake, I will do my best to capitalize on it. No threat, just a warning. My life is valuable to me, and I plan on preserving it with whatever is handy.

Hmmm... "I took out my phone..." and filmed the confrontation... didn't dial 9-1-1 or otherwise act to preserve the peace...

Actually the fellow that taught me Kali could do it with a considerably shorter stick. He could whip my butt and I had two.

Funny, even if the guy filming didn't have the foresight to carry a gun, he was in a 2,000lb bullet.

Highlander? More like a Low-lifer, he stole the sword from the guy he attacked.
