Savate is a traditional French combat sport in which fighters employ kicking and striking techniques. It differs from kickboxing and muaythai in that the fighters wear shoes and the kicks are performed at long range, using the feet only. Fighters cannot use the knees or shins and do not use clinching or grappling techniques. The savate concept is to touch without being touched, by using mobility and accuracy. Savate is a graceful combat sport with a strong emphasis on technique.
