According to the infalable Wikipedia, Savate is:
“also known as boxe fran√ßaise (French boxing) or French kickboxing, is a French martial art which uses both the hands and feet as weapons and contains elements of western boxing, grappling and graceful kicking techniques (only foot kicks are allowed, with no use of the knees or shins).”
And according to CalSavate.com, there are people practicing this French Ass Kicking right here in Los Angeles. In fact, there’s a tournament this Sunday in Irvine. Seating is first come first serve and it costs about $10 to get in (suggested donation) but if you like watching people fight, this might be worth checking out. Or if you want to fight, and are bored with all those other martial arts you’ve already mastered, maybe Savate is for you? They even have a blog, er, um Le Blog.
