    Isn't Savate French boxing? Is there even grappling in that?

    At least I hope so.

    I suggest the thread starter tries the search function. There has been a raft of threads on which art is better, arguments can be made for bjj, sombo and judo. Look around try any local schools you have and make your own mind up.

    yea dude I was joking. savate is what ernesto hoost does in k1. it sad that u cant even joke around anymore. anyways i wud prolly think judo wud be the best for the street. good take downs and very explosive with submissions. U dont need to really be powerfull to defend urself. bjj is good too however I dont think their take downs are as good as judo. on the street take downs are vital. and a mini slam on the street equals lights out for sum guard players taking their time trying to omoplata a guy trying 2 kill u

    there are stricking (Atemi waza) in judo, but i don't think most club teaches it.

    "will my strength coincide with that really well?"

    More so then BJJ i think.

    i know that Ernesto hoost is a former savateur, but I'm pretty suer he's converted to MT/kickboxing these days, besides to do Savate you are really supposed to wear shoes.

    I would say basic wrestling. If you know how to bring someone down you can just GnP them. However, someone may be more experienced than you & you need the knowledge of being stuck on your back that BJJ offers. I guess the answer would be CSW which I believe is a mix.

    CSW/Catch, because it covers it all: submissions, takedowns, control, etc.
