What about savate in Spain?
What can we say about it?
About non-typical french boxing (similar to kickboxing and ITF taekwondo) and canne de combat that doesn't exist?
About the book called "Savate war beetween NORTH and SOUTH"?
NORTH - http://www.savategal.org/
SOUTH - http://www.federacionespasavate.com/
About the French instructors visting SOUTH, and European championship organised in the NORTH?
About the english boxers from NORTH and ITF taekwondo practitioners from the SOUTH of Spain?
Is there really battle for savate in Spain? Opinions are different but many of us think about big dramaturgy of the same people.

The only question is when we compare Italy with Spain that we have the same divorced situation and another big country where the status of savate sport is unidentified.
Two federations, two battles and both fractions doesn't specialize savate as the only one sport but they try to have savate just as an additional once a year competition discipline. (Follow the Serbian and Croatian (let's say Balcan way)).
Names are names, accusations are accusations but it all doesn't matter when we follow the idea - general idea of spreading savate sport:
WHERE ARE FEDERATIONS WHICH REALLY SPECIALIZE SAVATE? HOW MANY REGIONAL TOURNAMENT WE ORGANISE EXCEPT WORLD AND EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS?
AND WHY CANNOT SAVATE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION CLOSE ITS DOORS TO KICKBOXING, MUAY THAI, ENGLISH BOXING AND OTHER ALIENS?
THE ANSWER IS BY MY OPINION VERY EASY.
DICTATE DOESN'T COME FROM SAVATE.

WE JUST FOLLOW AND ACTORS ARE ACTING. LIFE GOES ON.
