Students in a martial arts school in Henan province violently beaten, images too horrible to look at

Recently, an online post shocked Chinese netizens by revealing that students in a famous martial arts school in Henan province were violently beaten by the school. They were hit for not observing the school’s rules and regulations, such as smoking, absenteeism, talking after bedtime, using cell phones, etc. According to investigations, 90% of the students who had been beaten did not think of using the weapon of law to protect themselves, only because they were afraid of being even more severely scourged/whipped. According to reports, during the martial arts school’s violent disciplining, trainers mainly use staffs and hit the students in the buttocks because the buttons have more meat and won’t lead to internal injuries. The school would also gather all students to “kill the chicken to scare the monkey” [make it a warning to others].

It has been a well-known secret that trainers in martial arts school beat students. A trainer who is not willing to have his name made public said, “There are many students in the martial arts school, and difficult to manage students are even more. Using verbal discipline doesn’t work most of the time with those who smoke, drink alcohol, or cause mischief. This [using physical punishment] is most direct and effective way, and the most convenient way to manage [discipline]. We too have no choice.”

This is still acceptable, and I support it. This is a martial arts school, it’s normal, and these days students should be dealt with this way. You also should take a look at some of the incidents that are coming out of normal schools these days, where 10-year-old students beat others even more brutally than adults do. They’re simply out of control without any discipline. I think those of you who go online everyday should also already know this. Everyone needs to look at this from a different angle in order to see a different conclusion.

腾讯手机腾讯网网友 血色青春:

Isn’t this our Tagou Martial Arts School, the number one martial arts school, where I was once a student. I’ve also suffered such beatings before, but if you want to learn real martial arts, you can’t fear pain/suffering, and being hit is also a way of developing your potential. If you want to learn martial arts, you mustn’t fear pain/suffering. “Flowers in a greenhouse can’t stand the wind and the rain”. What [martial arts] can someone who can’t stand pain learn?

腾讯镇江市网友 右边後衛:

Tempering the flesh I don’t oppose, but what will children raised under violent discipline be like mentally/emotionally? What will they be like when they grow up? This is a very serious question.

腾讯四川省网友 缘:

No biggie. Don’t always drag the law into things. In fact, dutiful sons/children and talented people can also be produced under the stick [through physical discipline]. Although it’s not the only way, it is still necessary. Children nowadays aren’t taught respect anymore, not knowing what should be respected, all spoiled into thinking they are the most important and precious. Those who were born before the 1970s, very few escaped being hit by teachers, but now they are all very grateful towards their corporal punishing teachers!

腾讯手机腾讯网网友 精彩生活:

Do you guys think a student who isn’t afraid of his master [teacher], who doesn’t respect even his teacher can be of any use to society? He is still a child but is already full of bad habits! What do you think should be done?!

腾讯天水市网友 &朦胧&:

At a martial arts school, it should be like this. If students become “flowers in a greenhouse”, they will easily break/snap. If we want to raise awareness of martial arts in the world, then suffering hardship and pain is necessary. An old master once told me: “Being beaten by me is better than going out and then being beaten by others!”

腾讯手机腾讯网网友 糖果核:

It was much more brutal when I was in Tagou [Martial Arts School]! One look and I know this is Tagou’s masterpiece [work]. It’s completely normal. The main thing is that the law is imperfect plus Tagou’s influence/power. In short: If you’re in Tagou, one is doomed to be beaten!

腾讯荆州市网友 青苹果乐园:

[I] strongly condemn such corporal punishment. In today’s society that emphasizes human rights, this is even more shocking, and must not be tolerated!

腾讯手机腾讯网网友 精彩生活:

I believe education for children today should be more integrated! We can’t simply deem beatings/physical punishment bad. I too grew up getting physically disciplined by teachers, and I have never hated my teachers. Now I even think they were not strict enough! I agree with the teacher’s methods as a strict teacher produces good students and this saying is definitely not wrong. But integrating physical discipline and patient instruction is better! They’re/we’re all only children!

腾讯泉州市网友 恩恩:

The idea of martial arts schools is learning and having a strong body, not to implement a system of violence like in “black society” organizations [organized crime]. Though we say strict teachers produce good students, this isn’t how they are educated. If I were these children’s parents, I would immediately take my children out of that evil school, and at the same time sue that school.

What do you think about corporal punishment?
