Michel Casseux, also known as "Pisseux"[1] (1794 - 1869) was a Savate instructor.[2] He is widely considered one of the pioneers of this sport.[3] He is even repeatedly credited as its inventor.[4] [5][6]

Life[edit]

Based on streetfighting techniques he developed around 1820 "L'art de la savate".[7] [8] He banned certain street-fighting manners and developed a regulated system for self-defense and competition.[9][10] Due to his efforts the new sport got even eligible for members of the French upper class who consequently attended his Savate gym. [11][12] Casseux elaborated the first training system for Savate and his gym (or "salle") was the first official Savate dojo at all.[13]

Legacy[edit]

It was his student and successor Charles Lecour who eventually added boxing techniques to Savate and made it what is nowadays established as French Boxing. [14]
