Tagou is also tasked by the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Sports to find ath­letes for the sum­mer and win­ter Olympics.

Ac­cord­ing to He­nan gov­ern­ment’s web­site in June 2018, 143 ath­letes left Tagou to join na­tional train­ing teams in sports in­clud­ing freestyle ski­ing, snow­board­ing and surfing.

An ice hockey team is also to be found in Tagou. They practice with roller skates on the floor. “These with mar­tial arts back­ground can make achieve­ments in a very short time,” Feng Weifeng, who is in charge of pub­lic­ity for the school, tells the Global Times. “They have great bal­ance and flex­i­bil­ity.”

“We aim at the Olympics,” he says.
