DAR ES SALAAM, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- In the downtown area of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania's commercial capital, Saidi Mfaume, dressed in white attire, was leading people in practicing Kung Fu (Chinese martial arts).

Mfaume, father of a two-year-old daughter, owns Shaolin Temple Tanzania Kung Fu Club in Dar es Salaam, who trained in China's Shaolin Temple in Henan province for three months in 2013 under the sponsorship of the Chinese government.

Mfaume said cultural exchanges between China and Tanzania are a golden opportunity, and Tanzania stands to learn a lot from China's advanced technology and development.

According to him, he has trained over 1,000 people after he had opened Kung Fu clubs in several regions in Tanzania, including Tanga, Lindi, Dodoma, and Mbeya.
