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.


    I believe that you trained under a really great master. Where was this? I was taught this too!!! But my Master's name was not Uncle Vin. And he knew some incredible stuff!!! of course a lot of elbows, but you mentioned Ho ba chun, we called it Vo Tan Khanh -same thing. That's very special. I mean you must be very special. I'm really surprised!!! I didn't know there were other masters who are still around that practiced this. A lot of those masters were imprisoned and played dumb like they don't know how to fight! Many of those great masters are 80s or 90s or even 100s. The Art of Invisibility.

    Uncle Vin was my good friend's uncle...hence Uncle Vin. :toothy9: I studied with him when I lived in Springfield, IL. Many...many...many..years ago. I was not special in any way shape of form, I was just very good friends with his nephew, which I spent so much time with his family that I just became one of the fixtures at the house. :)
