Any additional info out there on this? I imagine this would be possible without sharpened blades.

You don't need anything but a crappy piece of sharp brittle steel to accidentally lung someone.

A mock samurai sword fight at a martial arts dojo sent a Toronto man to hospital with a punctured lung.

Toronto police Staff Sgt. Paul Scudds said an ambulance was called to a building on Queen St. E., east of Woodbine Ave., around 1:45 a.m. where attendants found a man who had been accidentally stabbed while he and a friend were playing with the sword.

He was treated at St. Michael’s Hospital and is expected to recover. The other man won’t face charges for the stabbing. .

In another over night incident, a 30-year-old man was stabbed in the neck during a robbery at Hot Spot, a club on Richmond St. W. near John St. Toronto police Det. Shehara Valles said the victim was taken to hospital, where he received 25 stitches.

A 27-year-old man was taken into custody shortly after. He now faces four charges, including robbery and assault with a weapon.

Question -- why are they sparring at 1:45 in the morning, and just how sober were they?

I have to wonder why the **** they have the two unrelated stories in the same article.

So you connect the first stabbing (in your mind) with the second (in your mind). Martil arts = robbery. In yor mind.
