There are many excellent gyms within the world of Kickboxing
but only one can claim the unique flavour of Belfast's ProKick.
ProKick was established at the end of 1990 by Billy Murray,
Ireland's most successful full contact kickboxer. Murray's tale
- from bullied school boy to world champion, trainer and owner
of what is now a chain of franchised gyms - is so incredible
as to be almost unbelievable.
Since the name was established (initially
as the title carrying the UK and Europe's first regular kickboxing
series, which ran from 1990-92), the gym has helped over 3000
students. It wasn't until 1993 that ProKick gym, as we know
it, was set up. As well as teaching self defence and fitness,
the gym runs sessions helping weight loss or indeed gain and,
most importantly, gives all who take up kickboxing added self
confidence. Aside from the first and main gym on Wilgar Street
in east Belfast there are gyms in Ballymena, Ballynahinch,
Comber, Newtownards, Bangor, Strabane, Dungannon, Newcastle,
Lisburn, Falls Leisure centre, Shankill Leisure centre and the Spirit Health Club within the Holiday Inn.
