The 2nd Southeast Asian Vovinam Championships gets under way tomorrow at the Sokhalay Hotel in Siem Reap, with five nations vying for regional martial arts bragging rights.

The three-day open event organised by the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia and the Cambodian Vovinam Federation received US$50,000 in sponsorship from telecommunications company Rath Sakon towards running costs.

Cambodia are set to field 20 competitors, while Myanmar will bring 44, Vietnam 43, Indonesia 36 and Laos 17. Twenty international referees will adjudicate the bouts.
