People in China call their country Zhongguo, or Chung-kuo, depending on what transliteration system you use to represent it in English. China is just the word some European languages use for the country. Therefore, your feeble attempt at a joke reveals only the inadequacy of your country's education system.

He also taught at a kung-fu place that has produced high calibre sanshou fighters (despite all the taichi wackiness, etc) :
Still its not as good as of book as I thought it to be. Yes, they show some basic judo chokes and takedowns, but there is a whole chapter designated to the D3ADLY PR3SSURE POINTS.
