Many people know about Chinese martial arts from Kungfu movies and films about the famous Shaolin temple. Many young devotees go to the temple and martial arts schools to pursue their dreams.

Chinese Kongfu, with its marriage of style and strength, power and speed, is considered the main martial art around the world. Zhang Xiang has been crazy about it since he was about ten, influenced by stars such as Jacky Chan and Jet Li.

Zhang Xiang, Primary School Student, said, "I have learned many free-hand boxing skills and armed boxing skills here. I was eager to practice kongfu when I saw familiar stars on TV. Now my dream has come true."
