The Convenience of
Vietnamese Traditional Martial Clothing

 

 

 

 

       The Martial Clothing in the SA-LONG-CƯƠNG School System designed before by the Grand-Master Trương-Thanh-Đăng for Martial Students - Tee-Shirt and Boxer Short replaced later by the baggy long Trousers - is only suitable for tropical lands and within the framework of home training.

       During the establishment of the first Sa-Long-Cương Drill Hall abroad, in 1968, we had presented the Students Martial Clothing design for Grand-Master Trương-Thanh-Ðăng approval according to the vietnamese tradition : Crossed neckline Jacket, long sleeves with puffed cuffs, ankles baggy long Trousers (pants) and a large soft Belt tied waistline round. This Belt represents also the Rank and Degree of the Martial Arts practising.   

      In addition, Martial Students wear sport shoes for feet protection.

       

       The Martial Clothing according to the vietnamese tradition : Crossed neckline Jacket, long sleeves with puffed cuffs, ankles baggy long Trousers (pants) and a large soft Belt tied waistline round is truthly convenient for Martial Arts training anywhere and on foot fighting as on horseback :

       - The Crossed neckline Jacket is closed from armpit into hip ; what makes it doesn't come undone while the combat.

       - The long sleeves with puffed cuffs make convenient the wielding of Medieval Weapons (Scimitar, Sword, Blade-Breaker, War Axe, etc.)

       - The ankles baggy long Trousers (pants), holding a large bottom, is truthly convenient to train for Postures and Kicks techniques, as for the Equestrian Archery and the wielding of Pole Arms (Vouge, Pertuisane, Spear, Halberd, etc.) on horsebackl.

       - The large soft Belt feld longitudinally in half and tied waistline roundlarge below the navel is both a belt* for making really the use of Internal Work easier and the one representing the Rank and Degree of the Martial Arts practising.

       *Remark : This belt is aided efficiently by a second belt, tied on the inside, called "Internal Energy Belt".
