Kickboxing Mad kids make the grade first at 11am this morning at the ‘Le Grande Grading’ at the Prokick HQ. It is a busy day for the students at the established kickboxing gym as over 20 kids and over 30 adults took their grades in various levels ranging from Yellow up to Senior BLACK BELT.

Paul Dobson our latest senior ProKick members was inducted into the ProKick Black Belt hall of fame. Paul under-went over 10 years of Kickboxing, fought competitively in the ring and if that was not enough had a gruelling week-long intensive training regime, cumulating in over 20 classes in all aspects of the ProKick syllabus.
Today Paul Dobson was presented his 'Black Belt' 1st Dan - one of the highest honours in Martial Arts - an achievement that represents years of dedication and commitment. It symbolises hard work, self-discipline, and perseverance, it’s the ultimate accolade for any Martial Artist. More on Paul Dobson
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.
Please do not move into any other class, ProKick HQ will info you all soon of your new training schedule and for the appropriate class for your level.
STAY IN YOUR CURRENT CLASS FOR NOW, Unless you have been informed ...Please!
