ABOUT CUONG NHU
Grandmaster Ngo Dong
Cuong Nhu is a Vietnamese style of Karate. It's name
comes from the Vietnamese phrase for yin and yang because it combines
both hard (Shotokan Karate, Wing Chun, Kung Fu American boxing)
and soft techniques ( Judo, Aikido, Tai Chi and the Vietnamese
style of Vovinam).
The first school of Cuong Nhu was founded in 1965
in Hue, Vietnam, by Grandmaster Ngo Dong. In 1971, while working
on his PhD at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Grandmaster
Dong established the first U.S. School of Cuong Nhu. Since that
time, many schools have sprung up across the nation.
