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.

James Southwood reports.
Great Britain sent one fighter, one coach and one official to Clermont-Ferrand, France early in June 2013 to participate in the World Championship Eliminations 2013 in Savate Combat. Despite not winning his two poule matches on the first day, Judah Wheeler fought bravely against opponents of a high calibre. Jasbir Nagi displayed excellent refrereeing skills as the third man in the ring in some fast and furious bouts. My input, in contrast, was far easier as coach, cornerman and Head of Delegation.

During a blustery January three British fighters braved sub-zero temperatures and crossed the icy tundra into Hungary to participate in the first Boxe Francaise Savate Budapest Open. The event was co-hosted by The University Boxing Club’s instructor Viktor Lovász and visiting instructor Alain Tardits.

The GBSF has a good relationship with Savate Ireland. On several occasions Savate Ireland have travelled to the UK to attend and support our events. We were lucky enough to be asked to return the favour. And so, a small contingent of seven GB fighters flew to Ireland for a competition on November 24th 2012, hosted by Savate Ireland and White Tiger Martial Arts.
