You have struck gold!

If you are in search of a clear path to learn the art of Savate, then you have struck gold. This course goes beyond anything that I have encountered to date, a full program both technically sound and physically measured, led by a true ambassador of the art of Savate.

How students around the world have benefited

A few World Academy stories…

Remember, when training online, safety is your lookout.

Before and during each training session, run a risk assessment to check, for example, that • Your training area is free from hazards (eg. trip, slip, or sharp objects). • You are no danger to the people and valuables around you. • You feel physically well enough to train. • Identify injuries in advance and avoid training over them. • Complete the recommended warm-up before training. • If you feel unwell, stop and assess, or seek assistance. • Respect your level and do not attempt exercises for which you are not ready. • Use common sense at all times.• By staying safe you can train more enjoyably, for longer, and keep improving! • If in doubt, consult a doctor before starting any fitness regime • Read general training terms and conditions and please cease training immediately if you are not comfortable with them.
