For 18 year old Guo Jia, the day begins at 5:30 am with endurance training. After breakfast there is stretching and Kung Fu fighting classes, before normal school classes begin.
For four years now Guo Jia has been a student of the only women's Kung Fu school in China: a boarding school for 70 girls, located in a secluded valley of the holy Shongshan Mountains.
She had always dreamed of becoming a Kung Fu fighter - learning how to jump over roofs and walls like her heroines in the movies. She feels privileged to be part of the school and now it is her time to show what she has learned - in a competition against another school.
