The first Viking Cup was held over the weekend of 7th/8th May 2016. The event was hosted by Cambridge Academy at St Bedes Sportshall. Four Viking countries participated: Finland, Germany, Great Britain and Ireland, including members of nine different clubs.

The weekend started with a course for the officials taught by Alain Gernet, visiting from France. Athletes were also invited to participate to help their understanding of what judges look for in competition.

Titi Parisiennes Canne de Combat Competition 24th-25th January 2015

(Written by Jon West)

The amusingly titled ‘Titi Parisiennes’ is not as one may imagine a continental branch of Ann Summers, but in fact the best Canne de Combat competition in the World. Held annually by the famous Apache de Paname Club of the 13th Arrondisment in Paris, it is a team event with 3-4 fighters per team.

Bulgarian World Open 2014, Kranevo

Three fighters from Great Britain attended the Bulgarian World Open in Kranevo, near Varna, in August 2014.

James Southwood, George Bushaway and Sian-Marie Clark fought brilliantly, winning fights and engaging in the pre-competition seminars.

The sun, sea and sand certainly helped the competition to have a relaxed feel, with a poolside boxing ring to fight in! This was definitely a competition to remember and once more our athletes returned having met new people from a variety of countries and re-connected with international friends.

European Savate Combat Championships 2014

This year Great Britain was represented at the European Savate Combat Championships in Bugeat, France on June 13th and 14th. Sian-Marie Clark, fighting under 56kg, has been on the GB Assaut team since 2010 and decided this year to turn her hand (or, more appropriately, fist) to Combat Savate, the full contact side of the sport.

Budapest Open, Feb 2014

In February, six GBSF fighters from London Savate and CAMA travelled to Budapest to compete in the second Budapest Open, hoping to display once more the strengths of British Savate in the international arena.

Ten countries overall participated in the competition and seminars, which were hosted by Alain Tardits, Viktor Lováski and Hungarian Savate. The Friday night played host to international savateurs who were eager to learn from Alain, a seasoned fighter and instructor, who covered many aspects of movement and range control with an opponent.
