About Savate (FISav)

http://fisavate.org

The Federation Internationale de Savate is the sole world-recognised international organisation promoting Savate and its associated disciplines around the world. Savate is a sport with a long history. It began in France in the 18th century. Pierre de Coubertin, creator of the Olympic Games, practiced Savate - his gloves are on display in the Lausanne Olympic Museum. The international federation, FISav, was  founded in March 1985; it is non-governmental and independent of political authorities. 

Savate is an educational sport developing important personal qualities: Ethics, Aesthetics, Education, Effectiveness. It is also a sport of opposition where technical quality and engagement are taken into account in the decision.  International Savate competitions are known for their atmosphere of friendship and good sportsmanship. Participation, fair play, discipline, and respect of the rules and the person are actively encouraged.  We hold World Championships in Savate Assaut, Savate Combat and Canne de Combat, as well as World Youth Championships for  young people aged under 18 years.
