Like many countries in South East Asia, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is still in its early stages of development in Vietnam. However, you can find a number of large luxurious MMA gyms in Vietnam’s largest city, Ho Chi Minh, including Saigon Sports Club and the recently opened UFC gym franchise.
While many of the head BJJ instructors hail from abroad, Tho Vu is the first Vietnam born black belt and he runs Kimura BJJ in District 2. There’s also some high level no-gi training available at Saigon Luta Livre in District 3 from American expat, Erik Koehne.
The northern capital city ofHanoi, also has a couple places to train including Ronin BJJ and BJJ Hanoi. A Kimura BJJ affiliate just opened a location in Hue as well.
