Kickboxers earn their stripes

Nearly 50 Kikckboxing mad wannabe's moved up another levelIT was a busy weekend at the ProKick HQ for our senior members. On Sunday October 1st, almost 50 adults took a step up the ladder of excellence taking their grades in yellow, orange, green with selected members for blue belts, the fourth level.
Congratulations to all those who passed their grading, it’s a mark of their hard work, talent and application to the sport.
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.
