Hi, I’m James Southwood. Welcome to the London Savate Online Academy. Train along with me 3x per week during lockdown and take advantage of my 20 years in the sport and the techniques that made me a World Champion. Whether you want to get fitter, improve your technique, or try out my workouts and exercise plans, I’m here to support your Savate journey.

You can chose classes that cover better footwork, kicking higher, boxing for Savate, tactical improvements, and workouts – I hope you’ll find what you are looking for. Enjoy your training and stay safe! Feel free to contact me with your questions, requests, and feedback.
