Vacón is a hybrid martial art used by the Peruvian military personnel and local police to prevent crime in impoverished areas. It was founded in the early 1980s by a former marine and jujutsu expert from the Lima district of Villa el Salvador broadcasting the propaganda of his martial arts through books and local television.

The martial art of vacón is a mixture between older martial arts like jujutsu with street fighting techniques known and used around the shantytowns (pueblos jóvenes) on the outskirts of Lima. The main objective is to know when to attack with power and disrupting an opponent’s equilibrium. Armlocks and chokeholds are commonly used.
