Last Grading at ProKick Wilgar Street

July 13, 2022

Can you believe it, this was the last Grading at the ProKick Wilgar Street Gym! It’s hard to take in that we are coming to an end at our Wilgar St Gym - it’s been over 30 years since I first took the lease of our unprepossessing building at Dundela. It has served us all well and hindered us none in our pursuit of excellence through our sport, but it's time to move on for so many reasons.>>>>

Over the past 30 years we've had 1000’s through the doors of ProKick and everyone one of you with your own personal story to why you wanted what we had to offer.
However, before I start to run down memory lane and become melancholic - pictured here are the last team and the last group of ProKickers ever to take a grade and Belt-up by moving up the ladder of kickboxing excellence at ProKick in Wilgar street. The last grading was held on Wednesday 13th July 2022 and covered Beginners-to-Yellow belt - Yellow-to-Orange belt and four Orange-to-Green belt.

The #ProKick grading saw adults members going through their ProKick exam with a series of tests covering different aspects from the sport which helps elevate students to the next level.
Thanks to, two senior ProKick Members helping out on the the Grading panel, they were - Ruth Anderson & Jonathan Smith.

What better way to spend a Wednesday evening 13th July 2022 than at the ProKick gym. Our Kickboxing enthusiasts all worked hard on test day.

The grading saw the adults go through their ProKick exam with a series of tests covering different aspects from the sport which elevates them to the next level.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.

Check the class times and please attend the right level class for your grade. If you are in doubt to which class you should be in email or call ProKick.

Well done to all of you who attempted the grading and thank you for choosing ProKick as your one-stop kickboxing shop....Thanks for all your support
