Savate

History: Savate is a French kickboxing style that began among French sailors in the seventeenth century. Although this style's exact origins are unknown, it is believed that sailors who made frequent trips to Burma, China, and Thailand learned eastern techniques, which soon began to find their way into French dockside bar fights. In the nineteenth century, Savate was formalized, and a sport form of the art, Boxe Francaise was born. Savate practitioners call themselves "Savateurs."
