At an elementary school in Shijiazhuang, China, students have been practicing a series of "anti-smog" martial arts exercises. Kick smog's ass, kids!

The children are doing wushu exercises. But according to website iFeng, the school instituted the "anti-smog" moves to help protect the students against pollution.


Shijiazhuang residents need all the help against smog they can get. The city has been called the "most polluted" in China. Still, as Kotaku's Eric Jou points out, these "anti-smog" martial arts are being widely mocked online in China.
