The 2010 province based research by ACWF had found that about 64 percent adults faced domestic violence, and 60 percent of teenagers have been the victims of abuse by parents, the China Daily reports.

The news follows reports that the Li Yang, known in China for his high-energy intensive language classes, was accused of beating his wife.

His wife posted photographs on a Sina Weibo micro blog showing injuries as evidence to back her claims.
