Boxe Francaise Savate, the national French sport, was born on the docks in Marseille during the early 19th century, and used for street fighting. B.F. Savate is a mixture of boxing and kicking techniques. This art is worldly know as the 'intelligent kick-boxing' requiring the use of strategy and perpetual movement. Punches and kicks are delivered using multiple combinations with a focus on speed and accuracy. B.F. Savate relies heavily on using feints and footwork to set-up attacks, and stresses evasion and counter-striking to disrupt an aggressive opponent. B.F. Savate is a competition sport, where matches usually consist of five, two minute rounds.
The fact that B.F. Savate is a shoe-oriented art, allows for the skill-sets to be easily transferred for self-defense applications as well.
