0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

Come and discover Vo Co Truyen, the traditional martial art of Vietnam! Training is available at a Vo Co Truyen school no matter whether you're a beginner or an expert. Vo Co Truyen is a term which encompasses the traditional Vietnamese martial arts. It is comprised of a multitude of different schools and styles, known as Mon Phai. Each of these schools has preserved its original technique, culture, and philosophy, notably through the tradition of Bai Vo or “Quyen”/”Thao”. The Bai Vo are solo practices which reproduce combat against an imaginary aggressor or aggressors. They have some resemblance to the famous Japanes Catas or the Pousmes of Tae Kwon Do. Above all, the focus is on self defense, and the strict use of technique in lieu of force.
This option is thus appropriate for all martial arts enthusiasts. Or for those travelling with their family and looking for activities for children.
