Photos of middle aged men dressed in lavish martial arts costumes have emerged online, and Chinese netizens have jokingly referred to the pictures as “cosplay for old people.”

The pictures were taken on at the Tianshan Wushu Symposium, a summit in China’s western Xinjiang province.

The symposium, located on the Kalajun grasslands of Xinjiang, is a large-scale meeting for enthusiasts and practitioners of Wushu, or Chinese martial arts.

According to organisers, participants at the symposium will not necessarily engage in combat, but instead come to learn, exchange views and promote their respective martial art styles.
