Master Nguyen Loc was a Vietnamese Wrestling (Vat) fighter. At the beginning, in the 30's, Master Nguyen Loc did not know how to punch or kick because in Vat there are no punches, no kicks, no submission techniques. So master Nguyen Loc went to search masters and instructors in order to learn such techniques. He then created Vovinam. But the wrestling IS and must BE a base in Vovinam.

Vovinam keeps the wrestling techniques
Wrestling is a noble art. As no punches nor kicks are allowed, then every Vat fighter ends the fight without bleeding, without serious injury. So, winning or losing, in Vat, maintains a certain form of physical integrity, that's why it's a noble art.
