The best integral discipline, and the most educative practice.
VIET-CHI-DAO is the culmination of 8 specialised disciplines in one integral discipline; it promotes the most modern methods for teaching, learning, and training.
Vietnamese refined and modernised Martial Arts
VOVIET is a specialised discipline in Vietnamese modern martial art. VO-VIET is the synthesis of Vietnamese Martial Art Styles and the ancient culture of Vietnam.

A Unique Grappling Sport
CHI-VAT is a specialised discipline in Vietnamese modernised art of grappling. CHI-VAT is the transformation of the oldest Vietnamese art of VAT into the newest Vietnamese Art of Grappling by redefining the objectives, refining the techniques, structuring the building blocks, adding new methods, standardising the terminology, establishing research methods, etc.
The Institute for Interdisciplinary Leg Methods Studies.
Leg Techniques are an important training part of most martial art schools in the world.
However, martial art schools are often isolated from each other and there are just a few places where people conduct serious research on all aspects of Legs Techniques training as an independent Art, not necessarily limited to the fighting purposes. CHI-CUOC is a research institute working inside the Vietchi Research Center in Canada.
An Elite Training Discipline for Physical Force and Inner Power
CHI-LUC NOI-CONG is a specialised discipline for Elite Training. CHI-LUC means the highest level of force and NOI-CONG the Inner Power. Master Phan Hoang has combined these two distinct fields to create this new discipline when he travelled around the world in 1983, facing many challenges.
This training is not open to everyone. New students are required to have a solid background in a Martial Art discipline and a strong will to reach a high level of training.
The Art of the Noble Stick
CHI-BONG is the transformation of the old Vietnamese art of the Stick (Bong) to the new Art of the Noble Stick (Chi-Bong) by redefining the objectives, refining the techniques, structuring the building blocks, adding new methods, establishing teaching methods and research programmes, etc.
The Art of the Ultimate Sword
VIET-CHI-KIEM (CHI-KIEM) is a specialised discipline in the modernised art of the Sword. It is the transformation of the ancient Vietnamese art of Kiem-Phap (Principle of Sword) into the new art of Viet-Chi-Kiem (Ultimate Sword), by redefining the objectives, refining the techniques, structuring the building blocks, adding new methods, establishing teaching methods and research programmes, etc.
A Way Of Life
VIET-TAI-CHI is a specialised discipline in Vietnamese modern Body-and-Mind art, created by Grand Master Phan Hoang in 1990 at the Lake Two Mountains, Canada. VIET-TAI-CHI is not a martial art, it is classified in the Viet-Chi System as an Outer Discipline / External Exercises (vs. Inner Discipline / Internal Exercises as in the case of Viet-Khi-Phap), aiming to help people to be happy and to be successful in life.
A Beautiful Internal Discipline
VIET-KHI-PHAP is a specialised discipline in the field of Internal Exercises. VIET-KHI-PHAP is a Way of Inner Energy. It is an “inward” discipline, focused on specific Breathing Methods, Dynamic Exercises, and Positive Thinking.
VIET-CHI Combat is not a new Martial Art, but a discipline of free-combat, which is a type of fight without pre-coded movements. It derives from the actualisation into sporting practice of the noble Vietnamese martial arts with influences from neighbouring countries after applying Western standardisation.
The Mind-Power-Brush practice
TUE-TU, Mind-Power-Brush, is a method of training to explore one’s Inner-Power and to promote personal-growth and self-healing. Although TUE-TU uses the brush and some techniques of calligraphy, it is not a school of calligraphy: no Chinese characters to learn, no skill in painting art needed.
