Thread: Savate: Have your say..

It's the only good thing ever to come out of France... they even tried to gay it up using unitards (of all colours except white, they keep all white cloth for making flags in case they have to go to war), but to no avail.
I don't get the shoe-wearing thing, though... do you guys train in shoes?
Also, do you train with la canne or baton? Or is it just the unarmed stuff?

Since it's on topic, sort of:
I'll be in France for the next three weeks, and am interested in checking out some Savate clubs, if anyone has any good tips. I'll be in Marsielle for a bit, Montpellier for work Aug. 25-31, and in Paris for a few days after that. Thanks.

Rubberduck, Asia and Joe... How does kicking with the toe work? Pointed like in ballet and you rely on the shoe to protect them? Ball of the foot? (That's how we did a lot of kicks, including a roundhouse, when I did ITF TKD.) Do they ever fight/train in bare feet and if so how does that change the kicking? Are the kicks thrown more like Thai kicks, or more snappy and chambered like TKD? (Looks more like Thai.)
That vid didn't really look too bad for NON CONTACT sparring. I'm just surprised they'd do non contact sparring. Why?

That's actually okay sounding, Point. Nothing wrong with progression, as long as it's heaeded in the right direction, which it seems to be.

Didn't Vega do savat?You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
