Moreska - Canne de Combat in Croatia, Korcula

And for Croatian savate would be so easy to promote Canne de Combat - especially in Korcula.

A traditional sword dance once spread on the Mediterranean, has only been retained in the Town of Korcula (island Korcula). The people of Korcula have been dancing Moreska for full 400 years and with its performance around the world they fittingly represent their Town. The dance consists of a display of a war fight with swords between two armies of whose kings have waged war to each other by reason of love of a beautiful girl, who the "black" king had snatched away from the "red" king.
