Furthermore, as many as 203 foreigners from 14 nations will take part in the festival, including those from India, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Canada and Morocco. As a result, the number of the participants at this year’s event will be double that of the previous edition in 2016.

Thanh added that after this year, the Traditional Martial Arts Festival will become a triennial event instead of biennial one to ensure effective organisation.

Notably, an activity aiming to honour cultural values and the quintessence of Vietnam’s martial arts will be arranged within the framework of the festival.
