ProKick Midweek Grading night
February 02, 2022
Blistering winds and bad weather which battered parts of the country couldn’t keep our members away from the ProKick Gym Belfast on Wednesday February 2nd 2022. ProKick was the venue for an action-packed Wednesday night of action. First-up, it was a ProKick grading evening for those who missed the last few graduation days. Today the Gym had just nine from our adult membership who moved up a levels to Yellow with four to Orange - all searching for excellence in the Sport of ProKick's style of kickboxing.
Secondly, if this wasn’t tough enough, two of the members, Dan & Jordan, (pictured) stayed on to the next class, A fighters classat 7pm, well done.
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 only the Yellow and Orange belt levels.
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.
