Brighton Savate Kickboxing

Brighton Savate Kickboxing

We are delighted to offer the French Kickboxing style: ‘Savate Boxe Francais’. Known for it’s fantastic array of kicks and intricate footwork. Savate kickboxing is famous for being an elegant style of combat and that practitioners must use footwear. Nam Yang are the only club to teach Savate Kickboxing on the south coast.

BF Savate has a very logical grading system, which practitioners can progress with at their own pace; making it a great sport for self development. Savate is a wonderfully dynamic system of Kickboxing. It’s a fast, high-octane form of kickboxing where the practitioner relies on intricate footwork and a huge array of kicking techniques. It is hard to find a system of angles and footwork to rival that of Savate.

Nam Yang’s Brighton Savate team was started at the beginning of 2017. Instructor Sam Byford-Winter spent 2 years training full time with Toronto Savate Chief Instructor and former French champion Gabriel Solignac. Gabriel is a Silver Glove ranked master of BF Savate, with countless number of fights under his belt. Gabriel is a French champion in both Assaut and Combat and a European Kickboxing champion too. Gabriel returned to his home town and opened Ales MMA, one of the first MMA gyms in southern France.

We have 5 former UK national Savate champions and 5 former UK vice champions training as part of our stable of competitors. And in 2023 we added another 3 National titles, and places on the international squad for our members. The team competes regularly at both National and International events. In January 2021 our coach Sam was voted in as the Great Britain Savate Federation president.
