Nearly. You can't do that with the native git tools. 
There exist some tools, e.g. connecting your local git-repository to
some other type of repository. git-svn does that for svn.
	git-svn init <SVN-URL> 
will make your repo able to use svn. Afterwards do
	git-svn fetch
to pull the svn-tree, and
	git-svn commit
to push back the changes.

best regards
