The organisers are also holding a two-day conference about plans to push the development of Vietnamese traditional martial arts around the world up to 2030.

Vice Chairman of the Binh Dinh Provincial People's Committee Lam Hai Giang said the festival was an activity to honour national traditional cultural values and introduce Binh Dinh's people, landscapes and customs to the world.

"It is a valuable opportunity for local and international martial arts delegations to share experiences on how to maintain and promote Vietnam’s traditional martial arts”, he said.

In the 8th edition, as many as 1,200 masters, martial artists and trainees from 77 delegations such as the US, France, Morocco and Switzerland have registered to take part in the festival which is hosted in Binh Dinh every two years. 

In 2021, the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic./.
