    QnA thread Jr

    Hey guys! I’m back from military training, and BOY was it tough. I thought I’d chat and answer a few questions people here might have about life and table tennis in China. It was fun the last time I did this, so ask me anything!

    1. Do you have a working link to CTTA ? It does not seem to work
    2. What are some of the biggest clubs in your area ?
    3. Are you going to Chengdu ?

    Although it’s called “military training”, it’s actually mostly not related to the actual military at all, I’d say it’s a poor translation of the name. It’s actually just like any other course work students have to take, and it’s mostly just giving them a taste of what it feels like to get up really early in the morning, and stand straight without moving for a few hours. They’ll also get to eat some really blend food, do a lot of marching step practice, and shout really really loud till their throats hurt. But that’s the gist of “military training”, or maybe a boot camp simulation would be a more proper name. Oh btw, I’m pretty sure there’s no ping pong to play, probably aren’t even allowed to bring much personal items either, at least that’s how I remembered it.

    Military education and training in China (Chinese: 军训) is a fundamental form of higher learning covering defence education as required by The Military Service Law of the People's Republic of China[1] and The Decisions of the Central Committee of the Communist Party about Education System Reform

    Purpose
    To promote the spirit of patriotism and improve the idea of defence
    To develop good will and characters
    To shape collectivism
    To promote the Communist Party of China
    To reinforce the ideology of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics
    To benefit later learning


    Student training
    A PLA master sergeant class four taking part in the Chaozhou Vocational Technical School military instruction in 2014.

    According to the Law of the People's Republic of China on National Defense Education,[3] pupils, middle school students and undergraduates should have military training when term opens or after National Day.

    Until high school, students practise basic formation and movement.

    High school students drill and study emergency evacuation, as well as national defence.

    Undergraduates take formal military training and emergency evacuation.

    Yeah no, I’ve been a part of it before, multiple times, and I don’t think it qualifies as “a fundamental form of higher learning covering defence education”. I would say 99% of the students will tell you that they hate it, and they’ve gained nothing other than getting really tan. The truth is students have to participate in it, otherwise they aren’t allowed to graduate, unless they have a note from the doctor saying they can’t.

    Your accuracy is amazing. We did exactly that, except now we have a “fighting” course and also the ALL IMPORTANT training to be loyal to the CCP, the military and the country.

    Put “to promote the CCP” on top in capitals and you’ve got the idea.

    Yes, they use military special booster.
    They have H33 rubber.
    They play with blades infused not with carbon, but with depleted uranium.

    i know we in Germany have a mandatory Training for 1 Year or social year now,back in my days you could not choose so easily.
    But we have an exeption for People who want to go Pro,they can join the military and only have to do the Basic camp,then they can Train for the rest of the Year under Military conditions.SO they get at least compensated,but they work mostly hard during that time and train every day .

    The 1 year mandatory (or more/less in other countries) is proper military service

    In China, what bird has is "school goers" needing to take part in this call every year.
    This is the same as CNT doing their weekly "call". Many posts has surfaced over the past decade around this.

    The mandatory military service requires all males 18-22 yrs old to register for the draft.
    But since there is so many volunteer/ full time service mans/womens, people don't actually get drafted.
    If you do get drafted it is 2 year service.
    and I do believe there are certain exemptions as well.

    probably for the top prospects,sounds a bit like Switzerland where they have basic and the also yearly Training or Practises.
    But its a good income for AThletes,i know for Example Dirk Nowitzki (Timo Bolls best bud) had only go trough basic camp and then went allin the rest of the year,but make no mistake if you saw that regimen that they go trough,you probably wished you had advanced basic military Training
