London Savate has been creating creating champions at British, European, and World level since 2004. Now we are sharing the secrets of our success.In 2020 James started putting training videos online and soon had followers around the world - Korea, South Africa, USA, Portugal, even France. This is world class Savate training for you, wherever you are.
I often hear from people who want to train in Savate but cannot, because they have no nearby club. I want to change that.
With on-demand classes, workouts, live calls, and video feedback from me, I can be your Savate coach from anywhere. This is your club.

What is Savate?
Savate Boxe-Française is an elegant form of kick boxing that originated in 1800s France. It is today a clean and efficient ring sport practised around the world. It is ideal for learning to box, getting fit, flexible, and having fun.
Do you take beginners?
YES! We were all beginners once and I am still learning new things after 21 years, so that feeling never quite goes away. We have a dedicated beginner course and new fundamentals training is given regularly. The classes will guide you through the proper form when you are starting out.
