Savate Cambridge

Savate includes both sport and self defence elements, and is a great way to increase your fitness, flexibility and confidence. Savate skills are developed through training in attacking and defensive combinations, movement, flexibility, cardio and sparring training. 

Visit SavateTV on YouTube to see some videos of Savate Assaut and Savate Combat competitions.

In the video below, you can see Instructors Julie and Morgan teaching an introductory session of Canne de Combat. Canne is the 'sister art' of Savate, often taught by the same instructors.

Savate has a long history, developing in France in the 1800s. To learn more about the history of Savate, equipment needed, and training combinations, we recommend that you visit Ollie Batts' website

For anyone interested in measuring the progress against a standard, there is an optional system of grading.

Savate Grades are by glove ranking - a patch can be worn on the training top or  integrale.
