was the NINTH 'Prokick Says' fun day for kickboxing mad kids from
all over the Country. And again what a marvellous success as the
monthly events are going from strength to strength with the technical
levels of the children even higher than previous events.
Special guests of honour for our Sept event were - Prokick's WKN
Champion's - WKN Professional World Champion Gary Hamilton, British
Champion Stuart Jess along with brother Gary Jess an upcoming star.
And if all the guests thought they were there just to look good
they had another thing coming, they were there on an official capacity
and that was was to judge the next generation of wannabe champions.
“This is brilliant for the kids as 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. The gym’s
motto is Truth, Discipline and Respect.” Said British Champion
A Packed Wilgar Street gym saw underage students take part in the
initiative that allows children to put their kickboxing skills on
display in a friendly and competitive arena.
The young stars, who cannot compete in the ring until they reach
the age of 15, combine the disciplines taught at the Prokick Gym
in east-Belfast in an occasion packed with fun.
“The children learning the art of kickboxing love the Prokick
Says fun day. They look forward to it because it gives them an opportunity
to put into practice what they learn in class. We wanted to give
the young members an opportunity to practice, mixing competition
with fun. The idea stems from a game Mr Murray invented which we
all have played for many, many years at the gym, Prokick Says, our
version of Simple Simon Says." Said World Champion Gary Hamilton.
"Its good for the kids to see
our champions close up, it will give them all something to work
for when they meet all our new and established kickboxing hero’s.”
Said the ProKick boss, Fran.
