On Sunday 25th August, Savate Cambridge held its Midsummer Open, supported by Cambridge Academy. This was an opportunity to take part in a friendly Savate Assaut competition. The event was open to savateurs from any club and included several weight categories for men, women, boys and girls.
The venue was our usual venue, St. Bede’s Sports Hall. The participants ranged in age from 7 to 60+ years, and included fighters from Cambridge, Birmingham and London. We were also privileged to have World Champion Smael Mayouf, from the Armentieres Club in France, participating. Twenty-eight assaut bouts were held during the day, with some excellent performances from kids and adults. Thanks to all who participated, and especially to the officials who worked hard all day.
