Several foreign fighters from different countries have offered a challenge to Chinese Emei kung fu, the reported Wednesday, citing a person familiar with the matter from the Emei Martial Arts Association.

The reason they offered the challenge is that Shaolin Temple sidestepped five famous professional Thai Boxers' challenges to Chinese kung fu in 2009, while Wang Jian, director of the Emei Martial Arts Association, stepped in to pick up the gauntlet and attracted boxers' attention worldwide, the person said.

Wang said Chinese kung fu has to have interaction with and learn from the world if it wants further development, and he and his followers are willing to meet with foreign fighters.
