Grading Success for Savate Tigers and Adult Members
Cambridge Academy of Martial Arts has been teaching the combat sport of Savate Boxe Française (French Boxing), since the early 1990s. CAMA instructors held to grading sessions in January. The first was for the Savate Tigers, our pre-teen group.
The Savate Tiger programme introduces children to the rules of Savate, and helps to build self confidence, self control, respect for others and understanding of rules.
Morgan brings home the medals
Morgan Alexander, an Instructor at the Academy, recently competed in the European Savate Combat Championships and the World Savate Assaut Championships.
The finals of the European Combat were held in the mythic Cirque d'hiver in Paris in September. Morgan faced a determined and more experienced opponent in the F-70kg final, and came away with the title of vice-champion of Europe.
