ProKick Grading Aug 17th 2019
August 17, 2019
BELFAST Saturday August 17th 2019. The ProKick Gym in Belfast was the venue for an action-packed Saturday. Today the Gym was crammed and inundated with kickboxers from the age of 5 years of age until the ripe young age to over 60. The morning was for our busy Saturday KIDS classes all searching for excellence in the Sport of ProKick's style of kickboxing. Whilst later in the afternoon the ProKick adults were looking to move up the ladder of kickboxing excellence, it was a ProKick kickboxing graduation day from the beginner to the final brown belt.
The grading saw Kickboxing mad students go through the ProKick exams with a series of tests covering different aspects from the sport which helped elevate them to the next level. Today members covered belts from Yellow, Orange and Green belt up to final brown the belt before BLACK.
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.
