In China, people begin to get ready for military service from the cradle. There are special paramilitary camps for children, where children are taught to be hardy. The weapons that children are given to hold in their hands are not real, though.
The training is conducted in a serious way. Even if these children do not join the military in the future, they may well wait for the sports career.
Like in the adult Army of China, where women serve like men, there are many girls in paramilitary camps for children, and they are not inferior to boys.
There are growing rumors that China will soon have to give up the policy of "one child per family." At the same time, China strengthens the army, so the activities of such camps may come in handy.
