Zhang Wang is only 5 years old but he is already impressing everyone in his hometown in China’s Sichuan Province for his impressive balancing skills while walking on a tightrope.
The skillful young Chinese boy learned his unusual hobby from his dad, who is a professional tightrope walker, NetEase reported (via Shanghaiist).
His father trains him every morning just before going to his kindergarten class. His daily routine includes walking 500 meters along a wire while his dad watches in close proximity, carefully guiding him, and ready just in case he loses his balance.

While he is undeniably talented, graceful, and already skillful at balancing, what is most impressive is his attitude toward his dad’s strict training schedule.
