Chinese acrobats have been performing in Tokyo for the past several years, but in recent months they’ve been taking to the city’s streets to perform.
But now, in a new move, they’re performing in Beijing.
The Chinese acrobat teams of two Japanese acrobat teams are competing in the World Acrobat Championship in Beijing from May 14 to 17.
This is the first time the two teams have competed against each other in the finals, and the winner of the finals will receive a total of 20,000,000 yuan ($25,000).
“We have already been training for the last three years, so we are very confident in our ability,” said Wang Yijie, an acrobat from Guangdong province.
“We are extremely confident in the performance of our performances.”
Wang, who has also won the Japanese title in the past, said that his group’s performances were the best he’s ever been able to perform in Japan.
“It was amazing to see them perform in front of a crowd of over 500,000 people.
The acrobates were so close to each other that you could feel their bodies move.
It was a perfect combination of timing, technique and rhythm,” he said.
Wang said that he plans to train in China with his Japanese team for the coming weeks, and hopes to become a better performer in the future.
“My goal is to become even better.
I want to be able to compete in the next Olympics and become the best performer in Japan,” he added.
