Raphael Riding shouts between kicks.

He sways, jumps and punches, practising for his upcoming competition.

But he’s not just any athlete, and the event he’s getting ready for isn’t just any tournament.

In October, Raphael will be in China, competing for the first time along with more than 2,000 athletes from 50 countries in the Zhengzhou China International Shaolin Wushu Festival.
