2002 Milan Italy


A Savate seminar was recently held at the Milan head quarters of La Canne Italiana. Australian Savate instructor Craig Gemeiner taught a variety of simple techniques from the older French methods of personal combat which included La Savate, Jacket fighting and the Vigny-Lang French stick fighting method.

Both students and instructors attending the 3 hour class were exposed to various scenario based drills and shown how to utilize their skills from pinned, sited and grounded positions.

Seminar participants came from a cross section of martial arts including, Sambo, Kung Fu, Sport Savate and La Canne.
