Reports back from events and competitions hosted or attended by GBSF members

Silver glove success!

James Southwood reports:
In the first week of July 2017, it was my privilege to attend a week-long seminar - or stage - in Boulouris, on the Cote d'Azur, organised by the International, European, and French Federations of Savate.

Irish Savate Open 2016

In November, Savate Ireland welcomed members of London Savate, Oxford Savate, City Combat and Dorset Savate for the latest instalment of the Irish Savate Open. Once more, it was a warm and welcoming event with a great seminar on the Friday night followed by junior and senior fights filling the Saturday. There were 100 entries, from 4-year old novices to senior World Champions - a veritable feast of competitive engagement in a friendly atmosphere!

Two City Combat novices, competing for the first time, have written the following about this first opportunity to test themselves:

The first Viking Cup was held over the weekend of 7th/8th May 2016. The event was hosted by Cambridge Academy at St Bedes Sportshall. Four Viking countries participated: Finland, Germany, Great Britain and Ireland, including members of nine different clubs.

The weekend started with a course for the officials taught by Alain Gernet, visiting from France. Athletes were also invited to participate to help their understanding of what judges look for in competition.

Titi Parisiennes Canne de Combat Competition 24th-25th January 2015

(Written by Jon West)

The amusingly titled ‘Titi Parisiennes’ is not as one may imagine a continental branch of Ann Summers, but in fact the best Canne de Combat competition in the World. Held annually by the famous Apache de Paname Club of the 13th Arrondisment in Paris, it is a team event with 3-4 fighters per team.

Bulgarian World Open 2014, Kranevo

Three fighters from Great Britain attended the Bulgarian World Open in Kranevo, near Varna, in August 2014.

James Southwood, George Bushaway and Sian-Marie Clark fought brilliantly, winning fights and engaging in the pre-competition seminars.

The sun, sea and sand certainly helped the competition to have a relaxed feel, with a poolside boxing ring to fight in! This was definitely a competition to remember and once more our athletes returned having met new people from a variety of countries and re-connected with international friends.
