    Well, supposedly, the french sailors who traveled to Asia "discovered" kung fu, or something like that, and thought it would be a good idea to add kicking to their puglism matches.

    Savate has its good points, from what Iīve been told by more experienced people. Of course, I wouldnīt go around there kicking with my toes without proper shoes.

    As savate instructor, I apologize about Sabre3 idiotic comments.....or who am I kidding. He can burn in hell for all I care.

    The punching question, according to historical sources, is that in France you could get six months jail sentance if you punched with closed fist. Hence why original savates strikes were open hand, and against English Boxing sucked donkey balls.

    As savate being "found" by contact in the orient. Maybe, but Basques have zipota, which is kicking art also. Also, the Jeu Marseillais kicks are different from MT for example, looking more like capoeira. :hiding:

    Hey, could you maybe give an outline on the reliable/probable history of Savate? Maybe not this area but the "History" area?

    Thanks.

    Zzzz... Savate is at least a full contact style, so whiners can contact the nearest Savateur and challenge him (or HER) to a match. Any questions of French surrendering are probaly much appreciated there.

    Could do so, though before 1800īs itīs pretty much guesswork (for me). Need to look into this Zipota, and its history too. :cat:

    Wagamichi. Will there be Trojan Rabbit also? :icon_wink

    I don't think savate doesn't work, not at all, remember that a Savate guy got to the finals against Royce in UFC 1. He was pretty hardcore too, he was the only guy doing leg kicks that I saw, he knocked out a huge sumo wrestler with a decent roundkick...

    Admittedly that's the only savate I've really seen, so he could be the exception rather than the norm, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    No no. Savate predates Thai boxing, which was created after French sailors gayed up the local Thai dock workers after beating them up with their native French fighting art.
