In the mid-20th century, in Saigon (present-day Ho Chi Minh City), a martial arts school, named Nam Tong, was established, attracting many students right from the beginning. A 15-year-old boy, named Quan Van Trieu, was among the first students trained by martial arts instructor Le Van Kien. With hard training, a great passion for martial arts and inborn talents, Trieu has become an outstanding martial arts instructor and head coach of the Nam Tong martial arts school. Trieu recalled when he decided to choose to practice Nam Tong martial arts.
