||Billy Murray began training fighters at the
start of the 1980’s in Newtownards’ Pound Street gym,
before he moved to Switzerland.On his return, at the end of 1990,
the Prokick gym, a fitness, self-defence and fight stable, was set-up
in east Belfast. The spit and sawdust centre is now in it's second
decade, having been established in January 1993. Prokick has taught
thousands of students and fighters. Affiliated clubs across the province
bring the total to 13.
There is a comprehensive self-defence system and fitness plans for
weight loss and weight gain. This improves the self-esteem of participants
as well as teaching a valuable skill. Our fighters have performed
at prestigious venues across the province. They have travelled to
Europe, Asia and North America. We pride ourselves on helping the
development of our sport and campaigning for global recognition.
Prokick is the only Kickboxing organisation in the province to receive
recognition from a local authority. Belfast City Council backs all
Prokick events in their jurisdiction because they recognise the boost
to tourism and community relations which the shows create.
