Hi. I am James Southwood. I started Savate back in 1999 and since then have had over 200 fights and fought in 7 World Championships. I have been teaching for over 17 years and have helped hundreds of students reach their goals, get into the ring for the first time, win a medal, or simply get started standing on one leg.
What are the lessons like?
Classes are typically 40-45 minutes, with warm-up, technique, freestyle, and conditioning or fitness. I aim to explain the purpose as well as guide you through the technique. I believe full-length classes help you put moves into context and return to techniques as you learn, which you cannot do with just a few minutes demo in a one-off online course.
