China -- After China once again failed to qualify for the World Cup, a businessman named Kong Debao thinks he may have found a way to revitalize the "beautiful game" -- by creating kung fu football.

By blending the sport of soccer with graceful kung fu moves, Kong believes he can help the national football team improve their agility and speed, according to

After two years of setbacks, the Chinese businessman finally found a martial arts school in the suburbs of Beijing that agreed to start a kung fu football class this year.

Don't know about you guys, but I'd really like to see a video of this. Is it full contact? Do they stop to perform a pattern now and then? Can you kick your opponent as well as the ball? Any weapons involved? So many questions.. :-)
