Savate is now part of the Extracurricular Activities at St. Peter
Savate is a sport in which the feet (with shoes) and the hands (with gloves) are used to strike the opponent, as it is a contact sport. The sport’s origin can be traced back to the French sailors of Marseilles, in 18th century. Although little known in Portugal (having first been introduced in Portugal on 9th October, 1985), in France it is a compulsory activity in Physical Education classes.
 
Reflexes, balance, speed, concentration and strategy are developed in Savate. It is also a sport of endurance and gentleness, in which one moves with fluidity and in which respect for one’s opponent and ethics are key points.
 
Other disciplines such as Cane Combat, Savate Pro, Savate batôn defence and Savate Forme are also aggregated to this sport.
 
Savate boxe française (as officially it is called) is considered to be immaterial cultural heritage of France.
