Savate- the french punch

Savate (French pronunciation: [savat]), also known as boxe française, French boxing, French kickboxing or French footfighting, is aFrench martial art which uses the hands and feet as weapons combining elements of western boxing with graceful kicking techniques.Only foot kicks are allowed unlike some systems such as Muay Thai, and Silat which allow the use of the knees or shins. "Savate" is a French word for "old shoe". Savate is perhaps the only style of kickboxing in which the fighters habitually wear shoes. A male practitioner of savate is called a savateur while a female is called a savateuse.

Early history

Savate takes its name from the French for "old boot" (heavy footwear that used to be worn during fights; cf. sabot and sabotage). The modern formalized form is mainly an amalgam of French street fighting techniques from the beginning of the 19th century. There are also many types of savate rules. Savate was then a type of street fighting common in Paris and northern France. In the south, especially in the port of Marseille, sailors developed a fighting style involving high kicks and open-handed slaps. It is conjectured that this kicking style was developed in this way to allow the fighter to use a hand to hold onto something for balance on a rocking ship's deck, and that the kicks and slaps were used on land to avoid the legal penalties for using a closed fist, which was considered a deadly weapon under the law. It was known as jeu marseillais ("game from Marseille"), and was later renamed chausson ("slipper", after the type of shoes the sailors wore). In contrast, at this time in England (the home of boxing and the Queensberry rules), kicking was seen as unsportsmanlike. Traditional savate or chausson was at this time also developed in the ports of North-West Italy and North-Eastern Spain.

The two key historical figures in the history of the shift from street-fighting to the modern sport of savate are Michel Casseux (also known as le Pisseux(1794–1869), a French pharmacist, and Charles Lecour (1808–1894). Casseux opened the first establishment in 1825 for practicing and promoting a regulated version of chausson and savate (disallowing head butting, eye gouging, grappling, etc). However the sport had not shaken its reputation as a street-fighting technique. Casseux's pupil Charles Lecour was exposed to the English art of boxing when he witnessed an English boxing match in France between English pugilist Owen Swift and Jack Adams in 1838. He also took part in a friendly sparring match with Swift later in that same year. Lecour felt that he was at a disadvantage, only using his hands to bat his opponent's fists away, rather than to punch. He then trained in boxing for a time before combining boxing with chausson and savate to create the sport of savate (or boxe française', as we know it today). At some point la canne and le baton stick fighting were added, and some form of stick-fencing, such as la canne, is commonly part of savate training. Those who train purely for competition may omit this. Savate was developed professionally by LeCour's student Joseph Charlemont and then his son Charles Charlemont.
Savate was later codified under a Committee National de Boxe Francaise under Charles Charlemont's student Count Pierre Baruzy (dit Barrozzi). The Count is seen as the father of modern savate and was 11-time Champion of France and its colonies, his first ring combat and title prior to World War I. Savate de Defense, Defense Savate, Savate de Rue ("de rue" (which has no other spelling) means "of the street") is the name given to those methods of fighting excluded from savate competition. The FIS (International Savate Federation) is the official World Federation.
Perhaps the ultimate recognition of the respectability of savate came in 1924 when it was included as a demonstration sport in the Olympic Games in Paris. In 2008, savate was recognised by the International University Sports Federation (FISU) - this recognition allows savate to hold official University World Championships, the first was held in Nantes, France in 2010. The 25th anniversary of the founding of the International Savate Federation, in March 2010, was celebrated with a visit to Lausanne, to meet with IOC President Jacques Rogge. FIS President Gilles Le Duigou was presented with a memento depicting the Olympic Rings. In April 2010, the International Savate Federation was accepted as a member of SportAccord (previously known as AGFIS) - a big step forward on the road to Olympic recognition.


In competitive or competition savate which includes Assault, Pre-Combat, and Combat types, there are only four kinds of kicks allowed along with four kinds of punches allowed: .
  • Kicks:
  1. fouetté (literally "whip", roundhouse kick making contact with the toe—hard rubber-toed shoes are worn in practice and bouts), high (figure), medium (median) or low (bas)
  2. chassé (side ("chassé lateral")or front ("chassé frontal") piston-action kick), high (figure), medium (median) or low (bas)
  3. revers (frontal or lateral "reverse" or hooking kick making contact with the sole of the shoe), high (figure), medium (median), or low (bas)
  4. coup de pied bas ("low kick", a front or sweep kick to the shin making contact with the inner edge of the shoe, performed with a characteristic backwards lean) low only
  • Punches:
  1. direct bras avant (jab, lead hand)
  2. direct bras arrière (cross, rear hand)
  3. crochet (hook, bent arm with either hand)
  4. uppercut (either hand)
Savate did not begin as a sport, but as a form of self-defence and fought on the streets of Paris and Marseille. This type of savate was known as savate de rue. In addition to kicks and punches, training in savate de rue (savate defense) includes knee and elbow strikes along with locks, sweeps, throws, headbutts, and takedowns
There are six basic kinds of kicks, and four kinds of punches for savate de rue:
  • Kicks:
  1. fouetté (literally "whip", roundhouse kick making contact with the toe), high (figure), medium (median) or low (bas)
  2. chassé (side or front piston-action kick), high (figure), medium (median) or low (bas)
  3. chassé italien (aimed at the opponent's inner thigh, with the toe pointed at the opponent's groin. Contrast the chassé bas lateral, which targets the front of the thigh.)
  4. revers (frontal or lateral "reverse" or hooking kick making contact with the sole of the shoe), high (figure), medium (median), or low (bas)
  5. coup de pied bas ("low kick", a front or sweep kick to the shin making contact with the inner edge of the shoe, performed with a characteristic backwards lean) low only, designed to break the shin bone.
  6. coup de pied bas de frappe (coup de pied bas which is used to strike the opponent's lead leg).
  • Punches:
  1. direct bras avant (jab, lead hand)
  2. direct bras arrière (cross, rear hand)
  3. crochet (hook, bent arm with either hand)
  4. uppercut (either hand).

Tekubi Waza Wrist Locks

Wrist locks are used fairly extensively in Jiu Jitsu as they are particularly powerful techniques to use. Even a Samurai dressed in full body armour had no significant protection against the application of a wrist lock. Wrist locks are particularly useful in that they disable most opponent's primary weapons - i.e. his hand(s). The locks are used as full defensive techniques in their own rights as well as for restrint and on occasion finishing off an opponent - they can be exceptionally painful.

in total it's hard to describe in words-for me ,but I'll try

There are many options that lock but all boil down to:
1.Bow your opponent's hand formed 90 * of the forearm
2.Wringing his hand so that the fingers were on top
3.push forward his hand and twist in side outside his shoulder[u can push his arm towards the ground to bring him down]

if someone is exercise he is able to do it with two fingers
keep the hands at waist level for better leverage and control.

gah. videos will be better
generally what's going on:

Osae waza, Kesa Gatame

Osae waza are hold-down techniques. OW are extremely useful to peel a comfortable position not only for  a lock or choke but also to take breath and exhaust opponent.

the most basic of basic:
Kesa Gatame (Scarf hold):

1.It consists in the fact that we are next to the opponent, so that our hips are touching.
depending on the site, grab opponent head by hand that is on the side of the hip.
2.[suppose there like in the picture] so grab a guy's head with your right hand, -we can pick up on the occasion his left arm so that it lay on his neck, so he start to choke and will not be able to strike us-
3.keep his right hand under your left armpit
remember to space out his feet as if you jumped the hurdles [VERY important] and tilt forward.
At this point the magic begins. guy panics and begins to jerk, you are adhering the largest body surface to the ground so the release of his attempts are futile.

But damn why you had space out your legs?
Guy jerking starts trying to 'do circle' on the ground so just begin to move with him moving your legs, like a compass.

remember "The lock and key 'Leaver?
lie down his right arm on your right thigh and hold it with your left leg for the wrist, now raise your hips and watch cry;)

the second option:
his right hand is 'getting caught' on your right leg so that his arm was on your thigh and the front arm around ankle / knee, now straighten / hip lift with leg lowering ,effect as above.
really quick win with a broken opponent hand.
I know that hopeless picture, but there's always something

ow  f**k! so powerfull!
Yes. To break free you need a lot of strength .... or method:
way my trainer:
grab your hand under his arm the other, while bringing as close as possible to the
guy's hip,
We press him to ours chest, hips violently pull up [something like this when taking the bridge], and we switch it through our left shoulder.
left grab his belt / pants and pull back
Now we are trying to jerk his right hand, when we do it at least partially successful, elbow should be
pounded in his right thigh / undermining it, hips up and taadaaaa!
others ways from BJJ:

Adamek vs. Klitschko. Who will win the September 10, 2011?

It has long been said about the clash, so different from each other giants: Tomasz Adamek of Vitali Klitschko. 90 days before the fight the final decision, which of the brothers Klitschko Adamek crosses his gloves, but all the signs in heaven and earth indicate that it was the Highlander will fight with Vitalij on September 10. Remember that the Klitschko brothers never know what if ia a swap places.

Promo vs. Tomasz Adamek fight. Vitalij Klitschko scheduled for September 10, 2011Anyway. Let's focus on this, as all the signs on the earth and sky shows in September Tomasz Adamek meet with Vitali Klitschko. So let's talk about Tom's chances to beat the elder of the brothers. In this regard, they were rivals speak Adamek, speak to other boxers, journalists also speak.

Adamek and Klitschko are so different from each other, it's hard to compare them at all. Each is a different type of boxer, boxing, each in a different style and has other advantages. The only thing that unites them, it is damn hard, even titanium, psyche. We can be so confident that Adamek certainly not forgive myself fighting after a few heavy rounds, what happened the previous Ukrainian rivals.


 Perfect perfect simplicity versus sophistication.
Yes, you can briefly summarize the styles of both fighters. About Vitaliju is said to have simple, primitive style and is easy to figure out. In that case, how come he managed to turn away so many of their technically fighting, "conquerors"? Style Vitali is not primitive! His style is simple but this simplicity Vit mastered to perfection! Straight fights, but damn effective and safe for everyone. Anvil for grabs, and moves casually beats, making them even more surprising recipients. Nokautować or may fail to point out - this is boxing Vitali.
On the other hand Adamek, who has not finished a nuclear strike to destroy the walls. This does not mean that it is not capable of hurting and nokautować. In addition to the strength must go technique and precision strike. Sometimes powerful bombs fall, which does not do any impression on the hit, and sometimes an inconspicuous enough, but tricky, because perfectly given the blow, which immediately extinguishes the light. It can Adamek and showed us, sitting on his ass Vinny'ego Maddalone "in handling the slight beard."


Boxing NSF (confrontations fighting styles)
Vitali, running on solid left straight, likes to slowly move forward and slowly push his rival into a corner, there to devour him. This beats the left to suddenly shoot precise and powerful right. And it works. Footwork? And what are his feet, and not to walk? So on my feet just a point.

The Adamek is in constant motion and is as volatile on the legs that gives the impression that he could fly over the ring, but he does not, because ... He would face disqualification for the absence of the NA have the ring. :) Its way of moving between the ropes is the total opposite of what demonstrates his rival September. Klitschko will want to hit and not get stress, and Adamek will want to point out and not get hit. One and one is to his predisposition, which is such a boxing fight will be the NSS, which will show whether the force + win percentage, or finesse & precision & efficiency.


And on the defensive ...Vitali, controlling the distance left stacker, practically does not have to think about defense, because it is this jab is his defense. Higher than its rivals effectively keeps them at bay, and they can not cope with this dystansującym left. Often, so much focused on circumventing the left, that capture the right i. .. lights go down.
Adamek is incredibly busy and Klitschko will have trouble hit him. I'm not saying do not do this, but will have to ascend the heights of his wits and speed that blows Asked managed to reach the goal.


Vitalij be no less surprised than we were.
You saw what Adamek despatched against McBride? You've seen the last round? Yes? It is still not seen everything Pole has to offer. McBride, Klitschko is not - it's more than a substitute for the Ukrainian. But Adamek to fight with McBride, is at best a substitute for Adamek, who in September will face Vitali.


If Tom wanted to quickly finish the McBride's, it would have done it with ease. But it did not. After three or four rounds it was clear that there is not a knockout comes, but for discrete test several functions and settings. I would like to draw attention primarily on:

  • Effective press against his rival in the retraction of the rope and escape from them. Vitali probably not running behind another in the ring, but so far none of his rivals he is not forced to. Surprised, confused and annoyed continuous air pruciem Vitalij simply starts to run.
  •     Handling rival, descent and to the side and blow "on the side." In this way, Adamek provokes fouls (elbow strikes, etc.) for which the contestant may lose points or even be disqualified. Going a little sideways and bumping body Adamek will be scored, because the long and less agile Vitali will need some time to escape into the distance and his favorite position.
  •     Series! The method of starting and speed in the last round series against McBride crushed! Feints, puzzles, "guess which shoots out fist" and the opponent's eyes before he could register at all Adamek both gloves, they already were handing out a further, extremely quick blows wherever it was to no place.
  •     Walking on the ring, Klitschko will have a problem with the setting to set a flying Adamek. Before you set your feet to the left drawbar positions will now be forced to switch, because already Adamek will lurk at the side of his guts.
  •     Adamek's  hit will be even harder than I thought before the fight with McBride. Then I thought that simply chase Tom in the corner, his big body to block his escape route and beat until the fall - because it is where he is being hit and hit. Now I have this solution to be less realistic, because the escape into her arm Goral has mastered to perfection.

If Adamek can not be in a lame way to hit, or break / cut up, it definitely will get Vitali. If only not for the stares and picks a bomb (as the Grant), is halfway through the fight will Vitek rozgryzionego Klitschko and then it will be dancing as he plays Tom. Vitali is a specialist from the slow, static, and most technically advanced an average of boxers. He likes to regularly receive their willingness and strength to fight, but Adamek will not go to him so easily.

The best parts of the fight Tomasz Adamek vs. Kevin McBride (9 April 2011)I saw how he looked in the twelfth Goral round fight with McBride. I saw what despatched with a rival who fought primitive and at all costs try to end the fight early. I saw a mass of skills, I remember these from previous fights ... Let me all these advantages will put on a table, that many a disbeliever will say "no, after all actually" - but to say this will have to pick up your jaw off the ground.

I repeat: if you can not Adamek Kliczce clean hit, it will be fine. 2-3 and hit a bomb may be after the competition - this is a chance Vitali. Not to get hit, is a simple way to go with Vitali door 'and thus a win Adamek.

I do not exclude such a version, like winning by submission to Vitali. Vitali first youth is no longer, and in recent years has not fought with such boxers as Adamek. That's not all! From the Adamek-like - smaller, fast and lithe Chris Byrd - the WBO belt he lost by TKO's (9 round, injury). He was about 11 years younger and less experienced. Now he has more experience and ... years.

In the duel Tomasz Adamek - Vitalij Klitschko every outcome is possible. Meet two equally powerful psychic and two different, equally powerful elements. For effective pain and simplicity of strength vs. Vitali. the pain of effective speed, agility and perfection Adamek.

None of them do not forgive. Each of them can win. As I wrote. 50:50. But really, it is 60:40 for Adamek. Or more.
And what are your predictions for this fight?

pastoral ads

cool, finally after exams and finally I have a lot of time to embrace the blog, I think that in the near term I'll write something about chokes and you some locks, besides it's time to start to write about international competitions, recently I fuck up mission  because there was a great boxing match W. Klitschko. vs. D. Haye ...


You see, almost all fights ends when one of the brawlers cannot get breath.
Chokes are really dangerous, and easy.

In Judo practice there are three basic ways of choking or strangling an opponent, as well as some combinations of the three:
  1. Compression of the carotid arteries on one or both sides of the neck restricting the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain.
  2. Compression of the windpipe (trachea) stopping or reducing the flow of air to the lungs.
  3. Compression of the chest and lungs preventing the opponent from inhaling (often used during pinning techniques).
These methods are sometimes distinguished by different terms and may be referred to as choking, strangling, wringing, or neck locks. However they are grouped together as a class of grappling techniques called shime waza. Shime means constriction and waza means technique so this group of techniques are all those involving constriction. The english term "choking" in Judo technically refers to the constriction or blockage of the windpipe which prevents breathing, and "strangulation" technically means compression of the arteries to prevent blood from reaching the brain. However, in this article and in most Judo classes the term choking techniques is synonymous with all of the kinds of shimewaza.
Compress the Carotid ArteryAll of these methods should be practiced and are useful for various situations. However the first choking method (strangulation) is stressed in Judo and is the most commonly taught in Judo classes around the world. Compression of the carotid arteries is desirable because it requires the least force, is the quickest acting of the choking techniques, is the most universally effective against all opponents, and it is most in keeping with the efficiency principle of Judo, "maximum effect with minimum effort." Medical tests have established that the amount of pressure needed to occlude the arteries is six times less than the pressure needed to collapse the airway. Directly stopping the blood supply to the brain also results in loss of consciousness about six times faster than indirectly reducing oxygen in the brain through restricting breathing or the flow of air to the lungs.
Carotid strangulations are also safer and involve less pain than the other choking methods making them easier to practice and to acquire sufficient skill to be confident in their use. Besides making them more effective, this makes them more compatible with another principle of Judo, "mutual welfare and benefit." A skillfully executed technique will give the Judo student the ability to produce unconsciousness or submission with little pain or forewarning to the person receiving the technique.
A good strangulation hold should render the opponent unconsciousness without injury or significant pain in a matter of seconds regardless of whom the opponent is. The most basic requirements for applying such an effective strangulation are:
  • Make sure your own body always has complete freedom of action so that you are in the best position for the technique you intend to use and you are flexible enough to be able to respond to your opponent's attempts to escape. Your position should be stable so that in applying the technique you can use your entire body.
  • Lead your opponent into a position in which it is most difficult to put up resistance, and control all of his or her actions. Your opponent must be unstable and under your control as much as possible. Very often this means stretching out your opponent's body backwards.
  • Train your hands to get an accurate hold the minute you begin a technique, make your choke work in a very brief time, and once you begin the pressure refrain from continually releasing to adjust your position. Your techniques will have much greater effect if you are firmly resolved not to let your opponent get away but to continue until the end without slackening. Constancy of pressure, rather than extreme force, is what is called for. Excessive reliance on strength would indicate a defect in the technique since very little pressure is needed to compress an artery and render a person unconscious.
Entire books can be written on the key points and details of choke holds. Students of Judo around the world have been modifying and refining these techniques for a century, testing them in contests as hard fought and serious as Olympic competition. They have developed many variations in the details of how best to utilize the legs, hips, chest, head, arms and hands to maximize the effect of the choke. In some chokes the hands and arms may use the lapel as if it were a thin cord to encircle the throat, in others they may twist or rotate powerfully into the neck, and in yet others they may pull or push to apply pressure directly to the carotid triangle or trachea. Even the same basic choke can be applied effectively in multiple ways depending on the position, relative size and movement of the opponent as well as the training, strengths and preferences of the individual.

The most effective method of shimewaza uses the principle of "maximum efficiency with minimal effort" by applying pressure directly on the carotid triangle without applying the pressure diffusely around the neck. The anterior cervical triangle of the neck (Fig. 1) contains the superior carotid triangle, within which there are the common carotid artery and branches, the carotid bodies, internal jugular vein, vagus nerve and branches, superior laryngeal nerve and the sympathetic trunk.

Fig 1: Anterior triangle of the neck (front view)
The amount of pressure directed to the superior carotid triangle of the neck (Fig.2) and needed to render an adult unconscious is no more than 300 mm Hg. A proper performed choke, stated in general terms, requires no great amount of strength.

Fig 2: The forearm applies pressure to the left superior carotid triangle. A top view of the head is shown with the back of the head furthest from the forearm.

juji-gatame -hell for elbows

Ude-hishigi-juji-gatame (cross lock) is the most common and most effective lock in judo. There are many ways to do it (some even from a standing position). Its the effectiveness determines precise clasp legs, as well as pulling. The principle is to reach out towards the uke's head (ie, your). It is often assumed directly after the throw technique. Along with keeping Ude-gatame creates a true combination of the ground. Short name of "juji-gatame" is not honored by the Kodokan.

Do you remember how recently I mentioned not watching your hands on the ground?
juji-gatame is one of the effects, it really is as horrible as trivial.
ok, due to great use of juji-gatame, I will describe the general principle this lever (this is really a lot of situations : p)
1.Grasp the wrist so that your thumbs are facing upward-facing you (really important if you grab the other side, thumbs in the direction of the opponent's shoulder-he'll easily free up his hand) and 'pull out' it on our site

2.We put first leg next to his neck, another on the other side of his hand so that she found herself between the legs. (by adding a second leg now we fall to the ground)

3.If we are far away from the opponent's chest you can bring up using your legs, braid legs and raise the hips up / bend in the back, all the while pressing the top of his hand to your chest

(my ugly pic one more time) 
If you are too far away from the opponent's chest, rather you  crush yours balls than do this lock

another ways:

'flying' juji-gatame

damn how to escape?
really easy:
if you are strong: grab a second hand that on which will be expected to lock and do not let it straighten

if you're not strong: move one leg so that the opponent could not straighten them

great movie though, unfortunately, is in Japanese: /
