STATEMENT OF THE MANAGING COUNCIL OF MASTERS OF VOVINAM VIỆT VÕ ĐẠO SCHOOL
Recently, an overseas organization of masters, disciples and former Vovinam disciples held a congress and self-promoted their members with belts, especially with belts titled “Bạch đai Thượng đẳng” (Supreme White Belt).
This incident has caused much confusion with regards to the official Patriarch belt of Vovinam Việt Võ Đạo, has created bad publicity around the world about our Vovinam school, especially with international and continental Federations/Associations/Organisations, in Vietnam and abroad, and has negatively affected the development of Vovinam Việt Võ Đạo.
To avoid any confusion, divide and differentiation within our school, the Managing Council of Masters of Vovinam Việt Võ Đạo hereby announce the statement.
You can read the Statement in the original version (Vietnamese), in English and in French.
