ProKick Kids - The involvement of our young ProKick members is central to us. Since ProKick's inception, we have always built much of our work around the junior ranks. ProKick has been in operation and working in the community for well over 30 years from our Wilgar Street Gym. On the 1st August after six years of hard work we opened our 1 million pound state-of-the-art ProKick kickboxing & Fitness centre of excellence. See the link of our open day also below check out time of classes and how to book your child on a class.
The driving element behind all of our young classes is fun. If our young members enjoy themselves first and foremost, then the other elements of fitness and good diet become something they look forward to rather than as a chore.
What can your child expect?
None of our junior classes involve any sort of full-contact. Instead, our ProKick Kids learn basic strength and flexibility exercises and have fun learning some of the moves in kickboxing. Each class a strong focus on our core motto of "Truth Discipline and Respect" which enables our young people to live out these values in every area of their lives. Firm favorites are our "ProKick Says" competitions and "Freeze" competitions which encourage active listening skills, discipline, co-ordination and healthy competition. This allows us to award many resulting in our kids leaving with a great sense of achievement and pride.
Our young members are encouraged to make their way up 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. ProKick Kids offers opportunities to increase confidence levels, make new friends and enjoy a fun-filled fitness experience.
Why would kickboxing be suitable for your child?
In our experience, every parent has a different reason for bringing their children to the gym and we cater for all of them. Our classes are suitable for kids with a variety of needs, we have had members (past and present) with Autism, ADHD, Asperger's, Dyspraxia, Anxiety and Depression.
