Savate is now recognised by FISU (International Federation of University Sports), and official University World Championships are planned for 2010, and every second year from then on. The 2010 World Championships will be held in Nantes, France.
National federations from all countries should follow Great Britain model of recruiting new savateur - students:

In all three National students sport federations they don't know anything about savate and nothing about its inclusion in FISU competition calendar.
What is the reason of our low activity? Isn't our interes to promote sport savate? Also among students? Didn't FIS make everything possible for us? What we are waiting for? Some miracle maybe? New move of FIS instead of us?
