Elegant Combat : London Savate

Break out of your comfort zone. Learn to fight in a ring. Be fitter. Get to know yourself.

Boxe-Française Savate is an elegant kickboxing sport from France. We have classes in central London SE1 - Waterloo and Southwark. Everyone from beginner to World Champion trains together in this club. There is no heavy contact: this is technical kickboxing, using angles, psychology and movement to outwit your opponent. Savate training offers a great workout, strength improvements, and a fitness buzz. It is accurate, efficient and elegant.

It is great fun too. You'll meet loads of new friends: they'll be the ones watching your back if you step into the ring someday.
