Kickboxers Belt Up
SUNDAY 5TH July 2015 and there was no rest for some of Northern Ireland's top kickboxing talent took to the Grading day on Sunday 5th July. Adult beginners right up to senior level Green Belts all converged on ProKick HQ on this beautiful afternoon and most (thankfully) achieved their next levels.
A grading is when Kickboxing students, non-contact and contact, are assessed through a series of levels / grades, with the base level being White Belt, through ten levels, finally reaching a Dan grade at black belt, which is equivalent, if you like, to a degree level in KickBoxing. This type of achievement would take, on average, between six and eight years with a training regime of on average of three to four times a week.
