About the Author
Augustus Roe is an instructor and student of traditional Vietnamese martial arts. For a number of years he has studied and trained in many styles of martial arts, including those that are globally recognized and those that are often unknown outside the confines of Southeast Asia. During this time Augustus has worked on various television shows, magazine articles and projects documenting the Vietnamese martial arts, many of which are available online. With the writing of this book, he aspires to make these valuable cultural and historical practices more accessible to western audiences by documenting in detail several of these customs in the English language for the first time. He further hopes to share with others the distinctive ‘outsider’s view’ that he has gained from his years of studying a uniquely Vietnamese phenomenon from the perspective of a British expatriate. A United Kingdom national by origin, Augustus now lives in the Vietnamese capital city of Hanoi with his wife Thanh Ha and daughter Isabella.
