Re: What is the best kicking martial art?
Basically, what are the downfalls to Savate? I don't know about anybody here, but I'd much rather be Pacquaio or Mayweather or any other counter puncher you can think of, as opposed to a brawler like Rios and Margarito.
It seems like Savate is more of a defense based fightings style. And in that video, where the Savate fighter didn't have his shoes, his style was still very effective.
So what exactly are the downfalls to using Savate?
It seems like it's superior to Muy Thai.
