Dear masters, teachers, practitioners and supporters,


I am pleased to inform you that the book "Histoire du Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao" (Tom I - from 1912 to 1975 in French) is available on Amazon.


This book represents the culmination of more than ten years of research and 10 months to translate it into French (nearly 300 color pages and 200 photos). It is also the fruit of close collaboration with many grand’s masters, masters, teachers, practitioners and supporters.



This book is primarily intended for masters, teachers, leaders and practitioners with responsibilities in Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao around the world. Of course, it is also open to all those who wish to know more about our discipline as well as its history.




Here is its content:

Chapter 1 is mainly devoted to the youth of the founding master, then to the official creation of Vovinam in 1938 as well as to the first demonstration in 1939 at the Grand Theater in Hanoi.


Chapter 2 traces a dark period in the history of Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao. It begins with the death of founding Master NGUYEN Loc (1960) and spans the four-year government ban of NGO Dinh Diem.


Chapter 3 is devoted to the flourishing period of Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao, marked by the creation of the initial foundations such as institutions, philosophy, the system of ranks, the educational program, uniforms, crest, etc.


Chapter 4 traces the period of meteoric expansion of Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao (1964-1975) within national education, in the police, the army, in the ministry of rural development and in various state bodies. This period also saw the emergence of a new generation of Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao masters, brightest men and women.


Chapter 5 is devoted to other more sectored historical elements, linked to Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao such as the origin of the various shields, the origin of the title of patriarch, the presentation of the thesis, the origins of the appellations "Vovinam" or "Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao" and the evolution of the organizational system from its creation to the present day.


Chapter 6 is exclusively devoted to the biography of the great masters who died, who worked for the development of Vovinam-Viet Vo Dao between 1938 and 1975.
