Newly-formed Brighton Savate is led by coach Sam Byford-Winter.
Sam has recently moved to the UK from Toronto, where he
qualified under Gabriel Solignac. Sam instructs adults and children at a full time Martial Art Centre in Brighton, teaching San Da (Chinese Kickboxing), Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Shuai Jiao (Chinese Wrestling) and Chi Gong as well as Savate. Many of his approximately 70 students are very excited to start training in Savate. The club had its first outing at the British Championships this year, and we were lucky to also have two of his junior members there to give an enjoyable demonstration of their skills before the adult competition kicked off
