The Tianjiao special guard academy was set up by former Chinese soldier Chen Yongqing, and is China’s first professional training academy for personal body guards. Each student pays 500,000 yuan (US$82,400) a year to undergo the harsh training, and aspire to protect China’s rich and famous. Chen said that his initial clients were celebrities, but now rich entrepreneurs are keen to have their own personal army of body guards.
