That's ture, accoding to the tradition, the chinese people like to practice the martial arts outside, but unfortunately, in now days, the young people work hard and have less time to train early in the park. In a park is more interesting than a club, because you can cross different people and exchange the skills with them to enrich each others. #UC37
