Info about "Viet vo dao video"
Viet Vo Dao is a modern martial arts discipline originated from Vietnam. It is practiced worldwide in more than 40 countries covering all major continents. The Viet Vo Dao history is strictly tied to the history of Vietnamese people and, therefore, reflects its spirit accurately.
The Viet Vo Dao is characterized by the fact that it is not the invention of one person, but it is the achievement of an entire population that, during its history, has had to struggle constantly in order to survive. Differently from other Asiatic regions where the practice of martial arts became the prerogative of a specific and privileged social class (Kchatrya in India, Samurai in Japan), in Vietnam the martial law, born in the farming environment, has developed with it. It is difficult to specify its date of birth which certainly is located in the period when the ancient Viet Nam still stretched in the lower part of the current China, up to the Duong Tu Gian river approximately 5000 years ago.
The Viet Vo Dao is not only a set of fighting techniques but includes the spirit of a people who has always had to fight to keep its independence and unity.
The form of Art as it is known is due to the writings of Charles Phan Hoang who has tried to propose it to the Western world; he has adapted in the form but not in the substance the principles and the techniques of an art which aims not only at fighting the opponent but also at training human beings in all their aspects.
