According to the report, a total of 1,358 martial arts masters, coaches and practitioners joined this year’s event, which was designed with more programmes than previous festivals. Due to many categories, it took over 4 hours to finish the award-granting ceremony.

“The organizing board focused on the performances of Vietnamese traditional martial arts and assisted foreign participants in showing their skills, sharing their experiences and visiting famous landscapes,” said Binh Dinh Department of Culture and Sports’ Director Ta Xuan Chanh.


The foreign squads, thus, were impressed with the organization of the event, landscapes, cuisine and the local people’s friendliness.

“I was really interested in participating in the festival,” said martial arts master Ait Medjber Rabie. “We will surely continue to join the next event with more people”.
