The Van Do Kan does not make distinctions between the styles, the schools or the various arts. It is a concept freed from the tradition which rejects the formalism. It uses all the ways, quite technical, quite average susceptible to serve its subject, the efficiency and all which works, and is thus locked into no ways, not to confine the human being in a single way of making things not to limit the human capacities.

It is about a work of liberation without limit of the fluidity of movements, by emphasizing an adequate use of the spirit and the body in the defense and the attack.

The martial art is the athletic expression of the dynamics of the human body. It is the deployment of what we are, of our angers, our fears while remaining oneself by being present in an instant, to be wholeheartedly involved in this particular moment and to give the best of oneself.

Every day, you learn. Every day, you progress. Every day, you mature.

The human being is in perpetual progress. He is always in a process of learning. If he is locked into a way which limits the way of making things, then he stops progressing.
The water which stops flow out becomes dirty and does not follow the current to reach its fate.
As the river which flows out, the life is a perpetual movement, a process in permanent movement. Each has to flow into this process, confide, become updated and develop.
The culture is the sense of the freedom and the creativity. To create, you have to express yourselves, and to express yourselves, you have to live.
