BUDO GALA is the best martial arts show on earth! Performing for over 20.000 spectators with the Shaolin Monks and martial arts legends in the Dortmund and Munich Olympic Halls is one of my career highlights! - Mike Chat

Savate (WIP)

Savate (French pronunciation: ​[savat]), also known as Boxe Française, French Boxing, French Kickboxing or French Footfighting, is a traditional 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, or Tireur/Tireuse.
