That's not "tea" - that's vodka redbull.

for the amount of time and effort, what would say is the goal or point of the training?
Do they compete, go out to fight others, ect....

They are training self-defence, as apparently there were a lot of crimes committed against taxi drivers in Hangzhou and perhaps elsewhere. I'd say that their training, despite many flaws, would be a great deterrent to anyone contemplating evil.. :P Over time I think people from other walks of life joined in on the fun. There are all sorts here in China. I could totally see this taking off anywhere here. Places are still rather isolated, however, even with years of internet.

It's not like I'm suggesting for anyone to go train like this...

It brings up the question of whether the second nut shot is worth the trouble, I mean does it hurt more after the first one? I honestly don't know, only ever been hit once per encounter, so I'm strangely curious.
