Congratulations to long time Savate student Richard B for recently passing his yellow glove grade in Savate –kickboxing. The grading was held under the requirements of the French Savate federation curriculum.

Assisted by Dan Bazzana this particular grading was based on the technical and tactical application of feints at a very advanced level. Categories included feints of technique, feints of arme, feints of target and feints of trajectory. This was followed by seven rounds of sparring in which Richard was required to tie-in all the skills he had demonstrated previously. After two hours of testing Richard had achieved a very high score in passing his grade.

We look forward to Richard testing for his next grade of silver glove in the not too distant future. September 2012
