« As a martial art, Pàijeda prioritizes social and ethical values.

This art encourages its practitioners, especially the youngest, to support, through their action, themes dear to the Principality: mutual aid, humanitarian aid and sustainable development.

It supports these themes, like the International Academy of Martial Arts of Monaco, which I technically lead, having notably supported actions in the field of Peace and Sport or Friendship Without Borders» declares Claude Pouget.


« The salute which takes place with the right hand, positioned on the heart, and whose arm then opens circularly, evoking the action and intention of opening one’s heart to the other.

In Pàijeda too everything begins and everything ends with salute! » clarifies Claude Pouget.
