Developed in France in the 18th century, Boxe Francaise Savate, or French Boxing, was very popular with the “high society”. Women began participating as early as 1900. Using hits and kicks executed according to precise technical rules, Savate is known for its complex combinations of fist and footwork.

In Savate class, students learn all of the basic fist and foot techniques, offense and defense, and progress to complex combinations and optional sparring. Street self-defense moves are also incorporated into most classes. It's an excellent class for learning the true skills of savate style kickboxing and self-defense.
