ProKick Kids Shine Bright at Wilson Snoddy's Kickboxing Event!
June 11, 2023
TODAY Sunday 11th June was a remarkable day for the ProKick Kids team as they took part in Wilson Snoddy's kickboxing event in Larne. Eighteen children aged 7-14 years old travelled to the picturesque sea-side town on the Antrim coast to compete in what was for some their first ever kickboxing tournament.
Sensei Snoddy and the Champions Kickboxing Club hosted the event, while Mr. Joe Hagan from Cookstown graciously matched some of our fighters. We also want to thank the helpers and parents who sacrificed a Sunday afternoon for their children's growth and success.
The ProKick Kids team demonstrated immense bravery and talent throughout the day and won numerous bouts against rival clubs. The electric atmosphere was amplified by the cheering of family and teammates, creating a memorable experience for all.
"I am thrilled to see these young athletes competing in such a demanding sport," said Billy Murray. "Their courage and skills in the ring are truly inspiring! It's always heartening to witness their progress in such a short time."
Murray added, "It's a joy to watch these kids grow and improve with time. Each one of them has put in tremendous effort to reach this point, and I'm proud of each and every one of them!"
Despite the outcome of their bouts, it was clear that every fighter accomplished something remarkable by participating. A massive thank you to Sensei Snoddy and his Champions Kickboxing Club for making this event possible!
Plans are at foot for another kids outing either in Cookstown with a final one back at ProKick in Belfast.
