If you can't even buildprivate villas on top of apartment towers in China anymore, how can youdistinguish yourself from the huddled masses? Former Chinese soldier ChenYongqing has an answer. Bodyguards.


He'sbuilt what he says is China's first ever professional academy for bodyguardtraining, turning mostly former soldiers, but really anybody tough enough, intopersonal protectors for those that can afford it.


Chenprovides one of his trained protectors for $82,400 a year. His client base, which initiallyconsisted of celebrities, is now mostly wealthy entrepreneurs, a trend hethinks has to do with bodyguards as "status symbol."


With agrowing disdain for China's flamboyantly rich,it may also be necessary for some. One of Chen's clients says that hedecided he needed a bodyguard after a friend was kidnapped and killed,adding, "society is not stable nowadays."
