Using a vaste array of kicks and punches against an opponent, Savate will dramatically improve a student’s confidence, flexibility, precision, comradery and endurance. Savate is suitable for children and adults alike.
Brighton Savate was started at the beginning of 2017. It is a school under the Toronto Savate banner. Instructor Sam Byford-Winter spent 2 years training with Toronto Savate Chief Instructor and former French champion Gabriel Solignac.
Sam was awarded his White Glove rank by Gabriel in early 2016 and placed 2nd at the recent UK National Championships. The Brighton Savate team came home from the 2018 Savate Nationals with 3 Gold medals and 2 Silver medals. And that was at their first attempt at the Nationals.
