Before getting into this story, we want to take a moment to annouce that we are starting a new section, Martial Extras, in our Training Blog. This new section will aim to showcase interesting and worthwhile martial arts news and info. We hope to bring informative and entertaining news to all you martial arts enthusiasts out there!
On with the story…An article that came from www.lookatvietnam.com showcases the young Vietnamese teenager Vu Tra My as the next martial arts sensation to come from Asia. At 17, My took gold medal at the 24th Southeast Asian Games and a silver medal at the World Wushu Championships. My started her training at the tender age of four and soon was training intensively in China. She became the Vietnamese national champion by age of 10 and now is leading the national team.
My’s dedication in martial arts also meant sacrificing a carefree childhood and missing families away from home. One can draw some parallels between My’s training history as well as her virtuosity with that of what Jet Li went through during his childhood. Perhaps we might also see My on the big screen soon?
