RS,

Kendo, hmmm...

Or the Ringwraiths from LOTR?

Ringwraiths?? Sorry, they carry lethal swords. These Paki ladies carry 'harmless' canes but their 'uniform' does match with the Ringwraiths'.

Take another look at the lady in the center. The way she holds the cane - so much like a kendo expert. lol!
