Through selecting and applying 24 professional physical development exercises for male students of Vovinam Club at FPT University Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) for 6 month-period, the results showed that students' professional fitness who participated in the experimental group had a remarkable growth compared to the students participated in the control group. Specifically, the average of all 7 evaluation criteria had a statistically significant difference at probability threshold P <0.001. At the same time, through the results at the national student Vovinam tournament in 2019 (took place in Thua Thien Hue), 5 of 20 students participated in this experimental group, achieved excellent results with 5 medals of all kinds (include of 01 gold medal, 01 silver medal, 03 bronze medals). Thereby, it has contributed significantly to help FPT University HCMC rise to the rank second of Vietnam). This is an encouraging first step so that we are motivated to continue implementing new works to apply this research result into practice.
