Bumina-ang showed the Filipino talent can excel in Vietnamese traditional martial arts as he edged hometown bet Xuan Hieu Do, 11-10, in the semifinal.

The host country brought Vovinam (Vietnamese traditional martial arts) back in the Games after a nine-year absence. The Philippines won two medals including Jenelyn Olsim’s bronze finish in the 55kg women’s division last Wednesday.
