Hosts Jason Chambers and Bill Duff go to France to investigate Savate street fighting.


Savate also known as boxe francaise, French Boxing, French Kickboxing or French Foot-figthing, is a French 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.
