“French boxing is a serious science that requires much composure, calculation, agility, and strength. It is the most beautiful development of human vigour, a fight with none other than natural weapons in which one may not be taken by surprise” Théophile Gautier
Savate, or French boxing, is an accurate and elegant style of kickboxing. Literally an old shoe, and dating from the 1800s, Savate is now a modern ring fighting sport practised by men and women around the world.
