We help people discover what they are capable of.

Anyone can be a fighter if you cultivate their inner champion and hold up the right mirror. You’ll feel a tingle when you first wrap up and put on some gloves to train. In future when you wonder what you are capable of, you’ll know. You’ll know how to find a line to an opponent, throw one last spinning kick, rely on your conditioning for one minute longer. You’ll be a fighter.

What is Savate?

Savate is French kickboxing sport with a unique feature called Assaut. It makes sparring a game. No heavy contact. More like high speed kick boxing chess. Touch, don’t get touched. Win by invention, effort, and tactics. The aim is not of damage, but of control.

Will I get fitter?

Savate training offers a great fitness workout, a way to manage weight and improve flexibility. London Savate classes will improve your range of motion, your cardio capacity, and muscular strength. Our fighter conditioning programmes prepare you for club, national, and international level competition. You do NOT need to be fit or young to join us. It is our job to get you fit.

Can I use Savate for self defence?

You can use self-confidence for anything. But we don’t advise using our kicks outside the ring, however. This is a sport.

Train with the best.

Our coaches are all experts in their game. All our instructors are current international medallists: one World Champion; a World #2; a European #3. We have coached hundreds of novices just like you to be a fighter. We’ll be watching your back if you step into the ring someday.
