right-pg-cover


The Martial Arts Of Vietnam is the first English Language book to look in detail at the systems, styles and histories of Vietnamese martial arts and their related practices.

Written as a culmination of many years research and practice of traditional Vietnamese martial arts by author Augustus Roe, The Martial Arts of Vietnam has been informed directly by first hand sources. Interviews with masters, students and academic research have all been drawn upon to provide the most detailed and up-to-date work written on the history, culture and martial arts practices of Vietnam.

The Martial Arts of Vietnam features around one hundred original images taken on location, as well as maps and timelines detailing important historical events and points of interest, a listing of the martial arts schools and styles discussed in the book, and a glossary of important Vietnamese terms for readers to refer to.
