    Anyone sparred a Viet-Vo Dao man, woman, practicioner??

    Purely a matter of interest.

    As a kid I saw a Brecy demonstration (yes, I know, Brecy is a place to be a flashy show-off, except for Bas Rutten). Guys seemd incredibly elastic, but the techniques seemed similar to Japanese JuJitsu. We don't have Viet-Vo Dao here, but It's been gnawing somewhere inside if this could be combat worthy.
    Today there's just no way I would train this, but I'd like to test myself on an opponent with similar years of experience.

    Anybody tried that with a Dao dude?

    I haven't tried anything with a Dao dude. But let us know how it goes....

      All the videos I've seen have convinced me that viet vo dao is 90% compliant hurricaranas.

        Black Widow Knows Vovinam !

        I finally know the origin of this technique/family of techniques that I saw while watching Iron Man 1 and 2 ! Agent Natasha Romanov is apparently a practitioner of Vovinam (Vietnamese: Việt V� Đạo, Martial Arts of Vietnam).



        Go to :45 to see what I mean.
