China Jedi welcomes you to join international Brits "Chris" and "Anthony" for an inside look into Chinese life as foreigners living, working, crying and laughing in China. A light-hearted insight into all things good and bad with a little bit of extra wit added on top.

With regular special guests from across China and creative educational games thrown in for fun, this podcast is a must for those interested in learning more about the middle kingdom or just wanting a good giggle.

China Jedi is not a political movement or nationalistic front to spread the religion of the jedi. It is for "normal" people, talking about "normal" things, answering "normal" questions to feel and be less "normal". Tune in, turn on and may the smile be with you!

Chris met his wife Miwako whilst living and working in Japan. They moved to China for a new challenge and have since had two young boys (Zachariah who is 4 years old and Jasper who is about to turn 2). They were both born in China and are learning Mandarin very well!

Chris is a friendly and energetic person with an infectious enthusiasm for life.  He is passionate about serving, inspiring, helping and instructing others on how to improve their lives and overall happiness by first achieving their health and well-being goals.  He offers both individual and group health and nutrition coaching programs to China expats, professionals and entrepreneurs, teambuilding retreats for schools and businesses and he’s a fun and creative workshop presenter and public speaker.

Anthony Benton

  • Founder Unique Kids English
  • Zhuhai, Guangdong
  • Taurus Ox
  • "Beware the fool, for he may be guarding his wisdom well"

Anthony Benton is the Founder of Unique Kids English, an English teaching course and system for non-native speakers. He studied Engineering, but rather than jump into a career he decided he would rather dive head first into the journey of life and suck up as much of it as he could.

He has been employed in many jobs ranging from factory work, office work, video games testing, motorcycle courier and even a professional Santa Claus! In his late twenties he moved to Newquay, Cornwall, in South England where he discovered surfing and ran a guesthouse with his girlfriend at that time. More recently he has been working as an English teacher for young children. During this time he discovered a passion for teaching young kids and decided to develop his own teaching system.

For the past thirteen years he has lived in Asia, where he has travelled to Thailand, Burma, Vietnam, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China. Most of his time has been spent in China, where he met his beautiful wife. They lived in Beijing for a few years and had a son, but as the air in Beijing was getting worse and worse they decided to move to the small green city of Zhuhai in Guangdong, South China.

Anthony is a spiritual person that enjoys all manner of scientific, philosophical and eccentric conversations. A humorous chap with a lively personality, he loves bringing smiles to people’s faces. He also loves nature and animals, and getting out into the wilds for some exploration and adventure. Now in his forties he has never lost touch with his inner child and should he be presented with a suitable tree he will be the first the climb it.
