8-year-old child in martial arts class beaten to death by instructor

An 8-year-old Chinese boy was beaten to death by a martial arts instructor a day after enrolling in the class.

The child, who has not been identified, joined the Chongde Juying Martial Arts Sports Club in Qingdao, Shandong, to take a self-defense class earlier this month, but died a day after joining the class as a result of injuries sustained at the club, according to a report from the Messenger, who cited Chinese media.

According to the report, the day after the boy joined the class, his parents were sent a video of his training that alarmed them as their son looked pale and had multiple bruises.

Meanwhile, the club has been shutdown as the investigation unfolds.
