    Savate: Have your say..

    I was wondering what your guy's opinion of Savate was (Barring that its French).
    I've been training in it for a bit now, and I think its done me more good than not. I'm not claiming it to be the end all be all of MA's but I think its good for what it was invented for.
    There's so much MA experience on this forum, I was just wondering what your thoughts were.
    Thanks.

    I trained savate while I was in Europe. Other than the uniforms for competition there isn't much wrong with it. It embodies a lot of what one needs in a MA. Its full contact against full resisting opponents. I use the chasse bas and median quite a bit.

    I'm intrigued by the chasse bas. It seems like a good way to annoy someone who's trying to round kick your legs.

    Are you talking about sidekick, or the one they showed in Human Weapon, which looked chasse frontal bas. Sorry, I have seen only 2 min preview in YT.

    The one that looks more like a front kick heel stomp. I assume that's the frontal.

    Yes, that´s the one. Just start testing it in sparring, if you allow straight low kicks. HW seemed to have good picture how to do it.
