    French Boxing: An Essay
    An article discussing the history and merits of French boxing (boxe francaise),
    from the Journal of Manly Arts.

  • Coincident with the miss, the legs of the Frenchman lashed out, the feet snapped up and quicker than the eye could follow, ten or more kicks hit the house that walked like a man

  • So the Frenchman danced around the bigger American early in the fight and thoroughly confounded him with his lightning-like kicks

  • Savate men used chiefly the low kick and did not exploit the chest and side kicks

  • Both had developed methods similar to Lecour¬ís; the guard was raised, the hands clenched, and kicks delivered to chest level

  • The Marseillais method featured blows with the fist and higher kicks than savate , but was deficient in that the adversaries seldom faced each other and most of the kicks missed due to a lack of spatial orientation on the part of exponents

  • At the outset Lecour scored three times in a row with the low foot kick

  • Correcting and completing the work of his colleagues, his system embodies English boxing exercises, body kicks and blows, as well as wrestling movements

  • According to a pamphlet he published in 1824, offensive techniques included front, round, and side kicks to the knee, shin, and instep, and palm-heel strikes (le coup de la musette) to the face and eyes

  • The kicking and handling forms were later codified by and the (RFU) respectively

  • To do this they use a combination of kicking and running head-on into the defensive line to either force back the defence or break the defensive line

  • The attacking team may use combinations of plays utilising speed, passing and kicking designed to confuse the defence, breaking down the effectiveness of the defensive line

  • Kicking is most commonly attempted as a last ditch attempt to score, common kicks are the 'grubber kick', 'bomb', 'chip' and 'the rare '40-20' where the kicking team gets to feed the scrum
