London Savate International Open 2020

Update March 2020: Event Suspended/Postponed.

If it is possible to run an Open later in 2020, I will. Even if the shutdown ends by June, I don’t imagine many athletes will be able to train appropriately or plan travel in advance. Thanks for your support and I hope to see you soon.
