    Bonjour. I went to Google and typed in "Savate training in France", and several advice pages in English came up. You must not be alone.

    You might do a couple of hours of home work yourself, narrowing options for contacts, and then seek more direct advice from people who have done it recently.

    The river of time keeps moving and things change, and an experience in 1998 may not be the same one you will have in 2010 or 2011. Passport requirements may change, and so on.

    I had an unexpected day free in Paris last year ... beautiful city. If I'd had a bit more time I would definitely have tried to visit Roger Lafond's school - http://www.savate-lafond.com/ . M. Lafond is one of the very few living links to true "old-school" savate.

    Where in France? It's not a small country! Some extra information would help a lot.

    DdlR's recommandation is very good for Paris.
    Marseille (in the south of France) is considerd the birthplace of modern Savate, so there are also some good clubs their.

    Since a couple of people have already provided you links from which you can do your own follow-up inquiries and research, may I suggest that you do that?

    Only you know your finances, when you will be there, which will affect if they will have opportunity to teach you at that time, and so on. Also, it is a useful life skill to do your own research and relationship-network development. After a point, third party involvement only clouds things and lessens your opportunities.
