A 12-year-old boy sent by his father to learn martial arts at a Buddhist temple ran to police for help after a few days when he found the monks there to be in poor condition.
The boy, surnamed Lu, from Chenjiafang village in Shaoyang, Hunan province, said his father took him to the temple in nearby Yueyang on Jan 23 claiming he could become a kungfu master. Instead, Lu found the temple shabby and that the monks in ragged clothes were incapable of teaching anything.

It may appear to the casual observer that a lot of places are trying to "cash in" on the current kung fu craze. Parents should as always do some preliminary checks before sending their kids to any martial arts school or institution! Agree?
