I'm willing to assume that a lot of the instructors in China don't know too much about the regulations there, but if you're going to be working in China, it's best to have some understanding of the local regulations.

The eight guidelines in China that would be of great assistance

Certificates need to get employment in China:

Work visa (Z-VISA) (obtained before entering China)

Employment Permit for International Applicants (applicable by employers for foreigners before entering China)

(Since it is against the law to acquire or sell firearms in China and the majority of Chinese people are known for their gentleness and generosity, they want to avoid getting into arguments with other people at all costs. Because of this, you do not need to be very concerned about the possibility that you may be assaulted in China.
