Kung-fu Bullfighting: Watch how this fighter takes on a full grown BULL!

Several times a week Chinese #bullfighter Ren Ruzhi puts himself in a ring to spar with an opponent around five times his weight and capable of killing him.

The 24-year-old's choice of career has brought his mother to tears with worry. But he says he has not been seriously injured and more to the point, he loves how exciting it is.

In matches, a wrestler approaches the bull head on and embraces it around the neck, grabbing onto its horns. Then the wrestler twists the horns so that the head of the beast cranes back and turns until it topples over.

Ren is paid around 6,000-7,000 yuan ($870-$1,010) per month to train at the Haihua #Kung-fu School in Jiaxing in eastern China's Zhejiang province near Shanghai. As well as training, his role includes occasionally performing in bullfights for tourists and teaching children Kung-fu.

His coach, former professional wrestler Han Haihua, is credited with turning this centuries old Hui minority tradition into a sport by combining it with kung-fu and bringing it to a mass audience. It was included in the 1982 #China traditional ethnic minorities sports games.
