Prokick Old Website - Full of News and History Dating back 10 Years


Dear members, the time has come to stand up and be counted on the behalf of Kickboxing, the sport we all love.

The ProKick management committee has decided on a course of action to help highlight the problem that Kickboxing has with one of the biggest newspaper group in this country, Northern Ireland. We also feel it necessary to right the wrong that has been directed towards former world champion Billy Murray. Read the reason why there is no coverage

Our first plan of action is as follows:

1. We have started a written petition and our on-line petition will follow.
2. On Friday August 18 at 4pm our Prokick members will hand over this petition to the Belfast Telegraph along with an accompanying letter demanding action.
3. We are calling on ProKick members and supporters to email your letters of support to and please put on cc or bcc. We will supply a hard copy of these to the Telegraph when we submit the petition. We are well aware of your letters and emails to the Belfast Telegraph not being answered.
4. We will notify all press agencies about this petition and ask them to turn up on the day.

Please let us know if you can make it to the petition handover on August 18. We have already notified the relevant authorities of our intentions, so this will be a quiet, mannered, organised and dignified action – fitting for our sport. We will hand the letter and petition over for the attention of the editor in chief of the Belfast Telegraph. So let’s vote with our feet and make our opinion heard and counted.

The ProKick gym don’t discriminate against any person on grounds of race, sexual orientation or religious background. We feel it is wrong and myopic of the Belfast Telegraph to discriminate against the sport – which is loved and followed by thousands here in Northern Ireland and millions across the world.

If any one would like to get involve with our petition then please don't hesitate to contact us.
You can help us right now by passing this page on to a friend or colleague. Or print the form out and post it back to us and we will reimburse your postage.

Thanks for your time
