Qwan-ki-do, Quan-khi-do
'Way of the fist and energy'. A Vietnamese spectacular and acrobatic martial art, slightly similar to Karate. Founded after the Second World War by the Vietnamese Pham Xuan Tong. Apart from the empty hand, the Vietnamese sword is also used. It is strongly influenced by the Chinese Dao-philosophy that tries to unite pure physical energy with the universal energy Ki. Training consists of exercises, freestyle fighting (Thao Quyen) and traditional forms (Dan Tu Do). Knew a very strong influence in France.
