CANNE DE COMBAT : FRENCH CANE FIGHTING FOR BEGINNERS
You are welcome to come along and try Canne de Combat in a free lesson on Tuesday 12th February. You can get fit and have fun at the same time with Canne de Combat. Originally developed for self-defence, French cane fighting is a dynamic art and sport combining strikes, blocks, feints and combinations. It is a long range art, involving stylish striking and athletic movement.
Canne is a sister art of Savate (pronounced sa-vat) which uses effective hand strikes and dynamic kicks, and was a demonstration sport in the Paris Olympic Games in 1924. The skills of Canne and Savate are sometimes combined in the form of Canne Chausson. In all free play (sparring) and in competition, padded clothing, gloves and headguards are worn.
This session is for adult and teenage beginners, and will introduce the skills of Canne in a safe and fun environment. You must be at least 14 years old to join. After this season, you will have the opportunity to join a longer course, which will give you the skills and confidence to join our regular classes.
