Bullfighter Ren Ruzhi, 24, poses at the bull stable of the Haihua Kung-fu School in Jiaxing, Zhejiang province, China October 27, 2018. Ren s mixing of martial arts and bullfighting worries his mother, but the 24-year-old has never been hurt. Besides, he says, grappling with a snorting bull is exciting.

 It symbolizes the bravery of a man,  Ren told Reuters in Jiaxing in China s eastern province of Zhejiang.

Unlike Spain s more famous sport, the Chinese variant of bullfighting involves no swords or gore but instead fuses the moves of wrestling with the skill and speed of kung fu to bring down beasts weighing up to 400 kg (882 lb). REUTERS/Aly Song

Bullfighter Ren Ruzhi, 24, fights with a bull during a practice session at the Haihua Kung-fu School in Jiaxing, Zhejiang province, China October 27, 2018.  Typically, a fighter approaches the bull head on, grabs its horns and twists, turning its head until the bull topples over. If the first fighter gets tired, another one can step into the ring, but they have just three minutes in which to wrestle the bull to the ground or lose the bout. REUTERS/Aly Song
