Gong Yifei, 24, is the only man to be found at Beijing's Luolan Pole Dancing Club. But that is not the only unusual thing about him.

Before becoming a regular at the pole-dancing training club, he had been a squad leader in the armed police force.

He says his decision to abandon the battlefield for the pole baffled many of his dance teachers.
