Traditional Vietnamese martial arts (Võ thuật Cổ Truyền Việt Nam) can be loosely divided into those of the Sino-Vietnamese descended from the Han, and the Chams or indigenous Vietnamese.

Modern styles, or Phái (schools), include:

  • Võ thuật Bình Định/Bình Định Gia – umbrella title for all the traditional styles of Bình Định.
  • Nhất Nam
