History:
The Russian Union of Martial Arts: 2005 – 2010
On June 1, 2005 the Russian Union of Martial Arts (RUMA) was founded at the Conference that gathered the Presidents of the Russian Martial Arts and Combat Sports Federations and Organizations. Today there are more than 4 500 000 people who go in for Martial Arts in our country. This is why RUMA appeared to be a response to the imperative demand of the time. At the moment RUMA unites 57 Russian Martial Arts and Combat Sports Federations and Organizations of different styles. It has managed to create the network of branches in 75 regions of the Russian Federation from Kaliningrad in the West up to Commandorsky Islands in the East.
On December 22, 2005 RUMA became the Member of the Olympic Committee of Russia in accordance with the Resolution of the Olympic Assembly.

On December 23, 2008 RUMA received the Certificate of registration within the System of Voluntary Certification in the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology. It opened the possibility for the National Sports Federations to develop the following:
  • Assessment criteria of the quality of service. It allows to raise the training and competition processes up to a new quality level; to improve the professional level of instructors, coaches, referees and other specialists working in the sphere of Martial Arts and Combat Sports;
  • Mechanisms of control and monitoring. It ensures a better performance of Martial Arts and Combat Sports nationwide.
On November 18, 2009 the Agreement on Cooperation between RUMA and the Ministry of Sports, Tourism and Youth Policy of the Russian Federation was signed. This Agreement reflects the main principles of partnership, including: the information exchange; joint implementation of projects and events in the sphere of the mass and youth sports; and popularization and implementation of a healthy life style nationwide.
The main strength of RUMA is its ability to use a holistic, comprehensive approach to solving problems which affect the development of Martial Arts in the Russian Federation, to adapt available experiences (both domestic and international) to specific situations, and to consolidate the efforts and the resources of governments, businesses and civil society institutions with the intention to enhance the sports and physical training activity of the Russian population.
The success of the Russian sportsmen at the Global Sport Arena is one of the proven indicators of RUMA’s strategy. The number of awards grows every year. RUMA’s calendar of sport events covers more than 500 domestic and international tournaments and sport events.

The Russian sportsmen won medals in the World and European championships as follows:
In 2006 – 91 gold, 57 silver and 71 bronze;
In 2007 – 108 gold, 99 silver and 89 bronze;
In 2008 – 202 gold, 130 silver and 108 bronze;
In 2009 – 274 gold, 211 silver and 195 bronze.

The Annual National Celebration Ceremony “The Golden Belt”, launched in 2006, celebrates the sports achievements of Russian athletes, their contribution to the martial arts development as a whole.
RUMA makes significant efforts in the development of the youth sports movement nationwide. The Youth Martial Arts Centers were created in 75 regions of the Russian Federation where young people aged between 10 to 20 have access to the highly qualified masters and modern athletic facilities. This enables young sportsmen to acquire practical skills in keeping a healthy style of life and to master the martial arts and combat sports. In 2008, the Russian Union of Martial Arts established the Open National Combat Games for Youth aimed at celebrating the achievements of youth sports. Since then, more than five thousand young athletes have been awarded for their achievements in martial arts. RUMA does its best to prevent youth crime, alcoholism, use if drugs, and the HIV spread among the youth population nationwide.
RUMA could not ignore the problems of children and of the young people who have found themselves in difficult life situations, and initiated the “Golden Hundred” project in 2009 intended to support young sportsmen from socially insecure families. The Project received high recognition from the Government of the Russian Federation. It was awarded with a State Grant. More than a hundred of young promising sportsmen will be donated grants in 2010.
The Russian Union of Martial Arts established the network of executive branches in 75 regions of the Russian Federation. It includes both governmental and non-governmental institutions. Informational, methodological, and educational support ensures the network’s institutional development and improves the quality of the martial arts and combat sports performance. It also serves for the purpose of positive contribution to the society. In response to some specific challenges presented by the social sector, RUMA focuses its efforts on creating conditions required to institutionalize a civic participation in the regional social policies to better serve the needs and interests of every citizen.
The horizontal links that emerged within both the sport society and regional communities have facilitated their consolidation. RUMA provides support in regular collaboration with the state government agencies and regional governments. The parties now jointly perform the consistent policies in the cause of developing martial arts in the Russian Federation.

HISTORY: savate combat Ernesto Hoost (HOLLAND) vs Sylvain Postel (FRANCE)

11th of August 1988 European savate championship - combat

Do you see the same problems like today in SAVATE? We invite in savate other fighters from muay thai, boxing and kickboxing who do not respect savate rules and savate techniques. The only goal is to win SAVATE.
In this same situation and false behaviour of his opponent ended also Sylvain Postel. Like many other fighters which left savate.
The same would be if you accept rugby players in football. Normally rugby players would be better and probably win all the football matches if we accept the fact that we never in combat fights respect savate rules.
Rugby has its own rules and it is tougher sport and more aggresive than football, but on the other hand people statistically prefer more football.
The same would be in savate matches. This sport is more fluid more tactical and people certainly discover this values.

BUT if we want gladiator games - THAN WE SHOULD TRY IT WITH GUNS AND OTHER WEAPONS LIKE IN BALKANE WARS SOME YEARS AGO. But after every non - legal games ussualy that kind of drama ends on a court. In this last one it was Haag. For all others there are others institutions.

Fastest Feet in the East

Written by Craig Gemeiner

Learning French Savate in Japan


Born in the ghettos of Paris, France, around 200 years ago, the fighting art of savate is today renowned for producing technically savvy stand-up fighters with the fastest feet in the West. Yet, while France would be the obvious port of call to anyone looking for expert instruction in savate, the art has surprisingly established a foothold in the East — in the proud karate and jujitsu stronghold of Japan, no less. Savate instructor Craig Gemeiner, first president and technical director of the Australian Savate Federation, recently travelled there to take lessons from several top savate instructors. Here, he reveals what he found out about French fighting in the Land of the Rising Sun.


Upon arrival in Japan, my first stop was the ultra-trendy district of Shibuya. It’s one of the busiest places in the world, where the young and young at heart often congregate around the famous statue of the dog Hachiko, which faces the Shibuya train station. The character of Hachiko is so popular that Hollywood actor Richard Gere recently starred in a movie based on its legend. Showcasing the latest fashions and trends, everything from punk rock, ‘Shibuya gal’, B-girl & B-boy, gothic Lolita, mods and everything in between can be found in this exciting district. But I wasn’t there for the weird fashion parade — I had come to meet the technical director of the Japan Savate Federation and former French savate champion, Franck Morin.

After settling in, I made my way to the base training facility called Multido, at Higashi, Shinjuku. Co-managers Bruno Lacko and Yann Sanchez established the dojo in order to give Japanese people the opportunity to experience a multitude of martial arts under one roof. Fighting styles on offer include savate, Japanese kickboxing, MMA, BJJ, capoeira, judo, aikido, and Krav Maga. Such a variety of contrasting methods being taught at one venue is common in the West, but very rare in Japan.

Personally, I’ve always found it a pleasure to be a student of an equally or more experienced savate coach. The president of the Japan Savate Federation, Liu Kubota, taught my first class at Mulitido. To begin with, he had students working basic savate enchainment (chained combination) drills, progressing to more complex skill sets. These enchainment drills force the student to rapidly memorise a number of combinations along with their defences, then abandon them and move on to entirely new sequences. This type of training develops one of the most important aspects of savate kickboxing: the ability to transition between the three ranges of stand-up fighting. Delivering the right tool at the right distance so as to ‘hit without being hit’ is at the core of savate success. Footwork is another essential aspect, and striking while on the move is a characteristic that is highly developed in experienced practitioners. Our training included plenty of savate footwork patterns involving decalage (stepping along an angular plain, either forward or back) and debordement (to out-flank or move outward). Offensively, these particular footwork skills are used to facilitate not only correct distance, but also to add additional power to strikes. Defensively, they offer a method of evasion by taking the body off the opponent’s attacking line.

After a dozen rounds of enchainment training, Liu had students move onto the Thai pads to develop power and cardiovascular fitness in conjunction with various savate combinations. This had everyone pushing beyond their comfort zones. Following the pad session, we moved on to sparring, or assaut in French. A vital component of savate training, sparring is trained along the lines of either specific tactical themes or in an open format. Some examples of savate’s tactically themed sparring include:

Distance theme – One fighter is restricted to using long-range techniques (straight punches and fouettes/round-kicks or chasses/side-kicks) while the opponent must use close-range techniques (tight hooks, uppercuts, coup de-pied-bas/inside-edge of-boot kick, and foot-sweeps).
• Technical theme – One fighter attacks with only front-hand punches and rear-leg kicks, while his opponent fires only rear-hand punches and leading-leg kicks.
• Footwork theme – One fighter uses techniques applied in conjunction with linear footwork, against a fighter who must focus on applying techniques. with angular footwork (debordement versus decalage).
• Tactical theme – One person uses feints as much as possible, while the other person focuses on counter-attacks (just one of many examples)

It would be rare to find a savate salle (training centre) that did not include some form of sparring during every session. Among the highlights of Liu’s session, for me, was sparring with Japanese fighter Mariko (Mari) Hara. A finalist at several World Savate Championships, Miss Hara would later become the first Asian to win a full-contact savate world title.

After six rounds of sparring with various members of the Japan Savate Club, we moved to the heavy bag area and worked through a steady flow of savate combinations interrupted with short bursts of non-stop kicking and punching. This aspect of training is designed to replicate the aerobic and anaerobic thresholds experienced in competition. Liu’s classes were extremely physical, but always enjoyable.

The following day, my wife, Yasuko Gemeiner, visited the Multido gym to test for her Yellow-glove grading. Supervised by Franck Morin, the grading was based on the technical and tactical application of feints used in French kickboxing. This involved feints of attitude, technique and trajectory, which were performed at high, medium and low level targets. After demonstrating these against a training partner, it was time for Yasuko to apply them under the pressure of sparring. Two rounds of open sparring were followed by four rounds of assaut, applying specific tactics. Achieving a very high score and successfully passing the Yellow-glove test, Yasuko is now looking forward to testing for Silver-glove rank (the Savate equivalent to Black-belt) in the near future.

On the the third day in Japan, I participated in a savate refereeing course run by coach Morin. Providing up-to-date information on running savate competitions, judging and refereeing, members of the Japan Savate Club kindly offered to assist me by participating in a simulated competition, so I could experience what it’s like refereeing real matches.

Over the weekend I attended a competition in the Tokyo district of Asakusa, where a Multido student was competing in his first amateur Shooto fight. The Japanese love their combat sports, and top fighters receive the same recognition and rewards as highly paid actors. The event was packed out with close to 100 young fighters seeking a victory and a chance to possibly emulate their Japanese champions. In true Japanese style, all spectators and fighters were required to remove their shoes and leave them at the entrance before setting foot on the competition floor. Several hundred pairs of shoes and boots lay about the floor, and when I returned several hours later, I was happy to find my Doc Martin boots exactly where I had left them, such is the Japanese way of respecting other people’s property.

The Multido fighter gave a good account of himself and even though he lost a close decision on points, he was a credit to his coach, Franck Morin.

The following weekend I met with Manuel Tardis, a former French savate kickboxing champion and vice president of the Japan Savate Federation. We began Manuel’s class with a session of focus-mitt training in which we fired off foot-and-hand combinations in between working defensive skills against the mitt-holder. After half a dozen rounds hitting the mitts, we moved into enchainment drills. In savate kickboxing, you never stop moving. It’s not enough to deliver one or two strikes; instead, the focus in savate is to deliver three strikes, at a minimum, whenever going on the offensive. It’s not uncommon for elite savate champions to fire up to 40 or 50 kicks per round while mixing in their boxing skills between kicks.

Manuel challenged each person in the class by presenting a full repertoire of combinations that pushed us physically and tactically. Each training mechanism in savate is designed to develop certain attributes, for instance, the Thai pads and the heavy bag will develop power and cardiovascular fitness while focus-mitts and glove targets are used to improve combinations and speed. Enchainment training in particular focuses on technique, timing, distance and recall of combinations. Combining five-to-six techniques over a three-minute round, Manuel would have us abandon them prior to moving onto a totally new sequence. By working such drills, savateurs are exposed to a full range of combinations and eventually they will settle on those that feel appropriate to their body types and experience.

After training over a dozen rounds of enchainment drills, we got a well-deserved break prior to the sparring session. Manuel began this session by formulating seven rounds of themed sparring and, as an added bonus, he also joined in to spar each of the club members. Themed sparring forces the savate fighter to work outside the confines of their preferred techniques, strategies and comfort zone. This plays an important role in every savateur’s development and provides a smooth transition to open sparring and the competition environment. For athletes suffering injuries, themed sparring allows them to maintain a certain amount of perishable attributes such as cardiovascular fitness, timing and speed.

Next, we pushed through a further eight rounds of open sparring. All skills from the previous themed sparring were put to use, but with limitations lifted to allow techniques and tactics to be applied randomly. During the session Manuel exhibited the prime qualities of an experienced coach. His manner, enthusiasm and sense of humour generated an atmosphere that motivated students to really push themselves through the two-hour class.

It was a memorable end to a trip that was both enjoyable and productive, thanks to Manuel, Liu, Marie, Franck, Bruno, Yann and all the members of the Japan Savate Club. I also left with a newfound liking for my host city, Tokyo. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not much more expensive than any major capital city and offers reasonably priced accommodation, great food, outstanding public transport, a safe environment and incredible history and culture. And, of course, it has great Savate training. Who would have thought?

UK: London savate - James Southwood and SOG - Summer Olympic Games 2012

http://www.londonsavate.co.uk/

Our biggest London hope is London savate with James Southwood. Promotion in London is not a very easy task. But on the other hand his ex-pupils offers BARTITSU so called self defense classes. In UK this is let's say popular self defense system (Sherlock Holmes style) that could associate savate and to join GBSF - Great Britain savate federation to be recognised National sport federation which is financed also on a national level from Lottery and Ministry of sport. But I think that they have a plan and that we are not far from this goal.
Better financing of UK savate could help at growth of this sport in:
England, Wells, Ireland, Scotland ... and provide more sportsman on International level and promote UK through OPEN savate championship like kickboxing in UK does.
And don't forget 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London and our will in FIS to promote savate at that VERY IMPORTANT time. Would it be time for a world savate championship - assaut 2012 in London after the Olympic Games when all of the crowd will dissapear any many sport facilities will still be in use (boxing rings, sport halls). Would this be an apologize of London to Paris to win a final battle for Olympic Games 2012? This could also be the test for savate to be IOC recognised and to jump in ARISF group of IOC recognised sports in the land of Sherlock Holmes.
(Don't forget that AIBA treated England, Wells, and Ireland as separate competition groups.) Are we strong enough to do it?
