Sokol movement - made savate popular in early 1900 (beginning of 20th century). And one of the key initiators in eastern and ES part of Europe was Mr. Jindrich Vanicek.
These days we don't see in Czech any savate club (only Roman Kleibl winning Christian N'ka in chauss fight). Also in Slovakia there is no measured French boxing activity. And these are the things we have to live with.
