French Savate is a French kickboxing combat sport that uses boxing hand skills along side kicking techniques.

Kicking techniques only use the foot rather than the shins like other combat sports and the name “Savate” comes from the  French for “old shoe”.

Savate originated as a street fighting technique at the beginning of the 19th Century and quickly became popular with sailors in the south of France.

Today Savate is popular all over the world and has influenced other maritial arts.
