Luca Ghinolfi (R) trains his students at class in the "Center for the studies of Oriental Cultures" gymnasium in Lavagna, Italy, May 8, 2017. Ghinolfi, a retired bank manager at age of 75 now, has always been passionate about sports. After seeing a presentation of Chinese martial arts in Genova and meeting Yang Li, a visiting scholar from Beijing Sport University in 1984, he was fascinated by Chinese martial arts and had kept practising it for decades. According to Ghinolfi, he usually gets up early at 5:30 in the morning, then starts his daily routine with meditation and wushu practices. After lunch, he reads classic books about Chinese martial arts and prepares his training courses. "It's a continuous research," he said. (Xinhua/Jin Yu)
