Elegant Combat : London Savate

Sport is life.

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

Boxe-Francaise Savate is an elegant fight sport from France. We have classes on week nights in central London - Waterloo and Bankside. Everyone from beginner to World Champion trains together in this club. You won't get hurt: this is technical kickboxing, using angles, psychology and movement to outwit and out-manoeuvre an opponent. Our training offers a great workout, strength training 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.

Start by booking your 5-class induction.
