Vovinam is Ground fighting

Master Nguyen Loc was a Wrestling fighter. Vietnamese Vat Wrestling is a FONDAMENTAL part of Vovinam. Not the flying scissors!! Therefore, in our search to get back to master Loc's project, we keep Vat as a base in Vovinam.

But, Master Nguyen Loc did not expect to keep Vat as it was in Vietnam. Master Loc wanted a Vat with punches, kicks, knee stikes, submissions and arm-loks, leg-locks and ankle-loks. That is what we have in the Song Luyen Vat 2.

So, the addition of groundfighting goes perfectly in the line of work of Master Nguyen LOC'S idea of Vovinam.

Let's separate Vat and Ground fighting
We have 2 ways of competitons for using Vat and Grapling techniques.

A-The Vat competitions, the two opponents are starting standing up. They apply any technique to bring the adversary on the foor, including throwing, sweeping, etc.

B-The Ground fighting, both contenders are starting in a position on the floor, knee down. This avoids accidents for the elders, and allows everybody to participate, whatever the age.
