Vovinam Viet Vo Dao


Vovinam provides a system of martial arts techniques that encompass various forms of self-defense and combat based on the principle of Yin-Yang development. Vovinam adapts the techniques of other styles of martial arts worldwide, and updates itself. Hence, Vovinam techniques are rich and varied.

Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao was founded by Master Nguyen Loc in 1938. He grew up in the period which Vietnam was still under the French colonial rule. At that time, young men either were seduced by the French into the lusty lives or joined the revolutionary war against the French. Master Nguyen Loc believed that the only way to free Vietnam from the colonial rule was to train the Vietnamese young men to have a strong, invincible will for liberty and independence. That will must be produced by a strong body and a rational mind. Carrying on that belief, he practiced hardly and researched many Vietnamese traditional martial arts as well as many foreign martial arts.
