Dear Vovinam fellows and friends,

Eighty years ago, Vietnam was dominated by a colonial power, people‘s moral and will power were depleted, a man named Nguyễn Lộc has the ideal for rebuilding a new citizen model by cultivating individual’s body and mind for the benefits of the family, country and humanity at large, hence the birth of Vovinam Viet Vo Dao martial arts.

Eighty years later, the Vovinam Founder’s ideal has been promulgated by many loyal practitioners. Despite the ups and downs of current events through the time, Vovinam Việt Võ Đạo had met with many obstacles but always persisted in its development path. Today Vovinam has crossed national boundaries, religious prejudices, political enmity to spread all over the world.

To mark this momentous milestone, the North American Chapter of the Overseas Vovinam Việt Võ Đạo Management Council will be celebrated the 80th Anniversary in Orlando, Florida on August 4 and 5, 2018. This is a great opportunity for Vovinam fellows and friends everywhere to pay tribute to the beloved and venerable masters and countless loyal practitioners who have sacrificed for the Vovinam - Việt Võ Đạo’s ideal over the past 80 years. We wish to meet each of you face-to-face, nghiêm lễ, and shake your hands in earnest, and hope we will unite and project our shared vision into the future.

We would like to invite all Vovinam fellows, family and friends to arrange your time to attend. Your presence will no doubt add to the significance of the ceremony and be a great encouragement to us. We look forward to meeting in Orlando.

Love,

On behalf of the Overseas Vovinam Việt Võ Đạo Management Council,

Master Nguyễn Quang

General Secretariat of the Executive Council
