Interviewer: Welcome to our Interview Series. Today we have invited Barzo Dosky from London United Kingdom to our show. Now he is in China to prepare for national wushu competition. Was this your first time in China?
Barzo: I have travelled to China 3 times. I was studying Taolu Wushu at Beĳ ing Wushu Team. I was there for one month intensive training programme… training 5 hours a day… as well as sightseeing on the weekends
Interviewer: How was your Martial Arts class and teacher?
Barzo: There were many classes you could choose from training with the professional team or needed to work more basics at the time. If I was to go back now I would train more with the professional team as I feel that I have a much better level of wushu. Not all of the coaches spoke English. The coach for the professional team would rarely correct or ‘teach’ in a sense, as he/she would already expect you to have a good level of wushu. He/she would only correct mistakes now and again rather than ‘teach’ you, whereas the coach for the kid’s class was more involved in teaching and improving your basic level of wushu, which will ultimately lead to a better level of wushu.
Interviewer: Any tips on getting the most from your training?
Barzo: If you have a novice level of wushu and have never experienced professional training, the best idea would be to train with the kid class. They work very hard on basics, whereas the professional team already have a good base, so they don’t work as much on the elements needed to help you improve. Training 5 hours a day, 5–6 days a week is not easy for anyone who has never experienced this level of intensity.
Interviewer: What was your accommodation like?
Barzo: I stayed at the student dormitory, which was pretty standard accommodation….not excellent, but not bad either. If I had any problems the administration was quick to help. I was provided with a bed, study desk and wardrobe, a fridge and a television. Meals were provided with the accommodation, which was very nutritious food and helped before and after a hard days training.
Interviewer: Did you meet many Chinese people?
Barzo: Many Chinese and foreign students were staying at the institute. Beĳ ing is a place full of foreign people as well as Chinese.
Interviewer: What do you think of Beĳ ing?
Barzo: It is probably my favourite city in the world. I have travelled many places in the world but so far nothing has beaten Beĳ ing. It has so many amazing things such as food, shopping, nightlife, culture, scenery. I can go on and on.
Interviewer: What do you think of Chinese food? And what is your favourite Chinese dish?
Barzo: I love it. Chinese food in China is nothing like Chinese food in the U.K or in the U. S. One of my favourite dishes is Szechuan hotpot!
Interviewer: What benefits did you get from the course?
Barzo: I understood what professional sports training was like, I learnt the importance of knowing how to train. I learnt a great deal about my body and how to treat it to get the most out of it. I made great friends. I came back to London with incredible energy and enthusiasm. Priceless!
Interviewer: Will you come to China again?
Barzo: Definitely….so much more things to experience there!
Interviewer: Thanks for your time, we hope you will come to China with us again!
