Fuerza Bruta in Beijing

epa03873469 A photo made available 18 September 2013 shows performers in action during the Argentinean theatrical show Fuerza Bruta in Beijing, China, 10 September 2013. Fuerza Bruta, meaning 'brute force,' is an Argentinean unconventional theatrical company in which creativity and experimentation are priorities. There are no seats at Fuerza Bruta, nor a stage. Fuerza Bruta can be described as a powerful collision of non-stop action with aerial imagery and music where performers run through moving walls, sing and dance on moving platforms, and bounce around in a watery surface just above the audience.

Summer boot camp in China

epa03897454 Young children wearing camouflage face paint and holding mock guns stand on formation during training at a summer boot camp on the outskirts of Beijing, China, 07 August 2013. Running in its 5th year, the youth military summer camp first opened in 2008, when it only had a handful of students signed up. Today the camp caters to over 2,000 kids a year over a two month period. The camp is ran mainly by former military, police, and fire fighters, looking after kids ranging from 6 to 17 years of age, with 70 percent being boys and 30 percent girls. The camp's average child is what it is known as the 'little emperor:' an over protected kid, product of the one child policy who most likely does not know how to make his/her own bed. The vast majority of the parents enrolling their children for the one to four week program do so not just as a different option for kids to spend their summer vacations, but because they hope that a taste of army life and strict discipline will strengthen their character, teach them to be able to do things for themselves, less dependent on their parents or grandparents, and maybe even make them braver. Enrollment to the camp costs between 2,580 yuan (316 euro) and 9,280 yuan (1,140 euro) depending on the length of stay. The shortest program of 7 days costs 2,580 yuan (316 euro). Then there is a 12 days program for 4,680 yuan (575 euro), 20 days for 6,580 yuan (808 euro), and the longer 28 days program for 9,280 yuan (1,140 euro). An average day at the camp starts before 07:00, when they must all brush their teeth, make their beds, air their tents by opening up the windows, and get themselves into their uniforms ready for the day's tasks. Depending on the program they are on, some will learn how to do their laundry, sit still at attention, march, go on treks, climb over an obstacles course, learn self-defense, survival skills, or go to the kitchen to learn how to make dumplings. Those students enrolled in the longer programs will at s

The Art of War Fighting Championship (AOW) is China's first professional MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) tournament. MMA is a full contact combat sport in which competitors combine a variety of forms of fighting that include jiu-jitsu, judo, karate, boxing, muay thai and wrestling among others, allowing martial artists of different backgrounds to compete against each other. The combat rules allow a diversity of striking techniques using fists, legs, elbows and knees; it also allows grappling and a series of chokes and submissions. Because of these rules, most bouts end up in either knockout or tap-out submissions. As a descendent of an ancient Greek sport called 'Pankration,' meaning 'All Powers,' MMA re-emerged throughout Japan and Europe in the 1900s, and later popularized through pay-per-view broadcasts in 1993. Nowadays, MMA has grown dramatically in popularity, especially in Las Vegas, where many fighters can enjoy 6 figure contracts. Although MMA is still fairly new in China, AOW hopes to popularize it in the coming years. Currently it schedules 5 or 6 fights per year, featuring both local and international MMA fighters.

epa01986649 Elderly men rest in their beds at a hospice in Beijing, China, 26 February 2009. China's aging population, the world's largest and accounting for up to one-fifth of the world's total elderly population, has reached 160 million according to state figures. Currently comprising 12.3 percent of the country's total population of 1.3 billion, the percentage of elderly in China is expected to double to 24 percent by 2050, reaching a total of over 320 million according to the United Nations Population Division. Early fears from experts that China's one-child-policy (fewer children to support aging parents) paired with a weak pension system would eventually become a problem have already started to show. China's care system for the elderly aged 60 and above is far from sufficient, both in terms of existing space as well as available and qualified nurses. An estimated 8 million elders are in need of accommodation while the current number of available beds in nursing homes is only 2.5 million. EPA/DIEGO AZUBEL
