National Vovinam Federation of Vietnam

HCM City — The Viet Nam Vovinam Federation, the governing body of Viet Nam’s national martial art, made its debut at a congress held in HCM City from October 19-20th, 2007.

The congress, attended by over 100 masters and experts in the field from all over the country, is seen as a move towards the establishment of the International Vovinam Federation and making the Vietnamese martial art an official sport at international games.

The congress elected a 37-member executive board for the first term (2007-11) with Le Quoc An, chairman of Viet Nam Textile and Apparel Association, as president.

Among six deputy chairmen, Master Nguyen Van Chieu was chosen to take care of the federation’s professional education.  Master Vo Danh Hai was appointed General Secretary.
