Arend F. van Peer (Top) practices with his master Lin Zaipei the Dog Kung Fu in Fuzhou, capital of southeast China's Fujian Province, April 18, 2017. Arend, 39, was from the Netherlands. He and his wife Khingeeva Tatyana came to China in October 2013. Besides doing research and teaching as a professor at a laboratory in School of Life Sciences in Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, Arend was a fan of Chinese martial arts. As students of Kung Fu master Lin Zaipei, Arend and his wife learned the Dishuquan, which is also known as the Dog Kung Fu, one of the most popular martial arts styles in Fujian Province and a national intangible cultural heritage. They went to the martial art club every week to practice with Dog Kung Fu lovers from all over the world. Arend said that learning Chinese Kung Fu has been his dream since childhood. He invited Chinese Kung Fu masters, including his master Lin, to the Netherlands for culture exchange. "Arend has mastered a series of skills of Dog Kung Fu and he is capable of teaching these skills" said Lin. On May 3, 2017, Arend and his wife will finish their work in China and leave for the Netherlands. They plan to introduce the Dog Kung Fu to the people in their country. (Xinhua/Lin Shanchuan)
