ProKick's elder statesmen protest!
elder statesmen of the famous Prokick Gym have protested that their
children – and in some cases, grandchildren – are getting
preferential treatment from kickboxing legend Billy Murray.
In recent weeks they have let their competitive youth shine through
when the gym’s younger members returned home with trophies
won at the gym’s monthly Prokick Says fun-day.
The fun-day allows young kickboxers who cannot compete until
the age of the 15, to combine their talents in a ‘friendly’
competitive occasion each month. A range of games and tests on skills
are rewarded with certificates and medals.
But now a team of older members, led by
veteran Desi McCartney, who has three grandchildren training
at Prokick, want a fun-day of their own.
Prokick’s head coach Billy Murray said “Some of my senior
members have noted the benefits of the Prokick Says for the young
members and they want to have their own fun-day. We launched the
Prokick Says day because the children cannot compete until they
reach 15 and it allows us to let them apply their skills in a competitive
and enjoyable arena.
“We have rolled a number of games into one big occasion and
the kids love it. Everyone is a winner and everyone goes home with
a medal. It’s important to us at Prokick Gym that children
learn about self-discipline, self-defence and grow up in a respected
and disciplined environment.”
Now Grandad Desi McCartney will have
a chance to win trophies in a special fun day of their own. Senior
members will play competitive games like Follow, an all-action fitness
game. The so-called new kids on the block will also compete in Prokick
Says, a kickboxing version of the old schoolyard favourite Simple
