Samurai Sword Exercise
I had a similar idea for this type of thing. My long term dream now is to make enough money to go back to college to study dietetics. Later I would like to open a martial arts school that can put people on a diet and excise regimen to loose weight and get healthy. I've been training in the traditional Korean art of Tae Kyon since November, and I've practiced Korean Kendo on and off for about five years.
I think that Tae Kyon and Kendo are good work outs because they are both rather gentle. Kendo motions are simple and they provide a good arm, back, and ab workout. The footwork also gives some good cardio.
Taekyon is also quite gentle except it has potential to be hard on the knees.
