Online Introduction to Savate - French Boxing
Following the success of our online training sessions for existing CAMA members, we now offer sessions for beginners and potential new members.
The sessions will run on Wednesday evenings, covering the foundational skills of Savate, including hand strikes, kicks, and defensive skills, along with flexibility, fitness and coordination. Over the course, we will progressively increase the variety of skills to enable you to enter our regular classes with confidence.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Update
Following communications from St. Bede's School our regular classes are suspended until further notice.
Information from St Bede's:
"Our priority is keeping our students, staff and other stakeholders as safe as we possibly can. As you all know by now, viruses can live on various surfaces for up to 72 hours and we will be simply unable to introduce an additional cleaning regime to ensure all areas are up to the required standard both before and after lettings. This is to protect you as much as us!
"We are so sorry for the inconvenience and any hardship this will cause but we feel the most important thing at the moment is to protect our community and environment as best we can.
"We sincerely hope this will not prove to be a protracted closure."
