The GBSF are pleased to invite you to this year’s AGM of the GBSF. We realise that this year has been exceptional and due to restrictions training, events and our general lives have not gone ahead as planned. However, we hope this will be a chance for Savateurs across GB to get together and discuss how we’ll progress in 2021.
The AGM is open to all members of the GBSF. Any instructors or students who would like to come along to the AGM are more than welcome.
The World Assaut Championships 2020 will take place 17-20 February 2021 in Weiz, Austria.
Covid permitting, the GBSF expects to hold a team selection event on Sunday 1st November, 11am-2pm, at King’s College Guildford, GU2 8DU, to select a team from the GBSF squad.
Squad members who wish to apply for a team place should fill in the inscription form below to attend the team selection event. Instructors and squad members who do not want to apply for a team place are also very welcome!

Many thanks to all of our dedicated officials,
Savate Northern Ireland hosted this year’s Junior Assaut Championships. As we have come to expect from Savate NI, under the guidance of GBSF Head of Juniors Joseph Ferris and Oonagh Ferris, the competition was buzzing. It was a spectacular event and the crowd support was phenomenal. A terrific show from both the juniors and the Seniors fighting in the Open made for a very exciting day, and fills us with optimism for the future of Savate in the UK.

Held at Broadwater School on 12th May 2018, this was our first official Savate Assaut Junior Championship! It was a very exciting day with nearly 100 fighters in total, 3 rings and a film crew. We saw some terrific new talent, especially amongst the juniors, and awarded the first annual Phil Read Trophy for best junior (given in memory of GBSF founder Phil Read, who sadly passed away last year).
