Chen Yongqing is the founder of China's first school of elite bodyguards recruited from former soldiers. According to his forecasts, the annual income from such a business will increase to $ 16,5 million over the next five years. For every bodyguard, those in need are now ready to pay up to $ 82,400 per year.
Training at the Cheng Company is not a joke; The 28 training day course includes learning how to act in the event of a terrorist attack, martial arts, conducting intelligence activities, and professional ethics. (Later, the best graduates of the school have the opportunity to undergo further training at the International Security Academy in Israel.)
These photos will give you a complete picture of how ordinary cadet training takes place in conditions that are extremely close to combat:

While participating in the long-distance race, the cadet had nosebleeds.
After the cadet crawled the route through the mud, she had to unbutton her cufflinks with her teeth.
The cadets carry their fellow student, who lost consciousness during training.
The cadets are close to each other to warm up during the short break between workouts.
According to the New York Times, bodyguard schools, like the Cheng school, provide professional security for “foreign objects, manage locally hired security personnel, and also send personnel to protect ships from pirates.”
In the hands of the cadets an exact copy of the Chinese semi-automatic rifle QBZ-95 \ type 95, which serves to protect customers from attack.
The rapid growth in demand for better and highly skilled security is due to the huge number of Chinese companies opening up abroad and often in areas of military conflict (such as, for example, African countries).

Such private bodyguard schools in China were banned until the 2010 year. Now that the ban on them has been lifted, security organizations have begun to emerge everywhere, profiting from numerous retired military who are in search of high earnings.
Students learn to help customers quickly run into the car.
Currently, there are about 250 full-time bodyguards in China.

Female bodyguards are in special demand and get paid higher than their male counterparts. This is due to the fact that women are less suspicious and can pretend to be secretaries or servants.

It is worth noting that while Chinese citizens are not often targeted by kidnappers for ransom, rich and famous bodyguards provide security and a sense of self-worth and integrity.
