On July 25, commissioned by the Ministry of Culture, the second Shaolin Temple "training classes for African martial arts students" officially opened in Henan Songshan Shaolin Temple.

The program was organized by Songshan Shaolin Temple, entrusted by Henan Province Department of Culture, in an effort to fulfill the commitment to strengthen African human resource training by the Ministry of Culture during the Second Ministerial Conference of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum. Twenty martial arts students from Benin, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Gabon joined in the training.

The Shaolin Temple made thoughtful arrangements about the training courses, including Chinese martial arts training and Chinese traditional culture teaching. The African students learned the martial arts and enjoyed studying age-old Chinese history and culture.

This martial arts training class was a focus activity of the "Focus on African Culture 2014", as well as an important part of the African capacity, building and human resource training program of the Ministry of Culture. It will help expand the China-African cultural exchange platform and promote traditional Chinese culture.
