Cambridge Academy of Martial Arts has been teaching the combat sport of Savate Boxe Française (French Boxing), since the early 1990s. In more recent years, CAMA has introduced the Savate Tigers training programme, specifically for pre-teens. The programme is based on the French training model for junior Savateurs, known as ‘La progression Kangourou’.
The first levels of Savate Tigers introduce children to the rules of sport and Savate French boxing in particular. The programme also helps to build self confidence, self control, respect for others and understanding of rules.
