Interestingly enough, Uncle Vin called his system vovinam, Vietnamese Kung fu. However, looking at you list, it sounded as though we did more Vo tay son or Ho ba chun. We tended to use elbows and knees a lot as well as a lot of tiger crane work. So I am not sure if what he taught was specifically Vovinam or if he just used a more popular name to describe what he was teaching. Thanks for the info.

That school looks like chinese.
Vietnam has many styles.
Vo Tu Do: (vaw too yaw) Like muay thai except a lot more elbows
Vo tay son/vo binh dinh: central mountains style, lots of elbows
Ki cong nu thuat: Grappling style
Ho ba chun: tiger with crippled leg, based on diagonal movements
Kim ke: golden cock style, from man with same name, based on bird like movements
vovinam and cuong nhu: recent "eclectic" POS styles
Do vhat: vietnamese wrestling in water
I studied at a vietnamese school and can answer any questions.
