Peter Andre has announced that he will be launching a franchise of Kung Fu schools across the UK to help teach children discipline and confidence.

The 'Mysterious Girl' pop star already has a number of projects to keep him busy, but it looks like he isn't intending to slow down anytime soon after revealing that he wants to lend his name to over 500 sports training centres across the country and open a string of Kung Fu schools.

Peter is teaming up with his 7-year-old son Junior's martial arts teacher to open the schools, which aim to assist youngsters with their self defence and consequently, keep them off the streets.

Speaking to The Sun about his exciting new venture, the reality TV star admitted that although it will take some time to set up, he cannot wait to get started on the project.

And it sounds like the idea may have come from Peter's own experiences of growing up doing martial arts and using the sport as a way to tackle tough situations.

In fact, 40-year-old Peter admitted that doing Kung Fu helped him to build up his confidence and made him feel safe knowing that if he was to find himself in a tricky predicament, he could get out of it.

He said: "... it's given me that sense of knowing if I'm in a situation I can't get out of I know what to do... "
