All the happy Kids from the  Feb event ‘PROKICK SAYS’ children’s competition day saw the Prokick kids come out in force for another successful fun-day at the Gyms headquarters in Belfast at the weekend.
Over 50 kickboxing mad underage talents took part in the event, with the main aims based on improving fitness, discipline and co-ordination.
Our monthly competition for kickboxing mad kids started in January 2006 and been running every month since. “The kids love the competition doing all the kickboxing moves without taking the blows. It's perfect for them as underage members are not allowed to compete in full-contact kickboxing until they are 15 years of age. So, from the age of five they are learning the art of kickboxing but not the application.” Said Prokick oldest fighter ‘Rocky Desi’ aged 63 this month, who was special judge for the day.
“I wanted to give the young members an opportunity to put their skills into practice, mixing competition with fun.” Murray went on to say, “We 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.
The next Prokick Says fun day will take place in March at the Wilgar Street gym in east-Belfast with the next instalment on March 24.

Follow, Follow is a racing fitness game. The children are seated in lines, Mr Murray calls out someone’s name and all the children follow that person until they’re told to go back to their lines and the last one to sit down in their original place is out.

Multiple Kicks
: Whoever can kick the longest without setting their foot back on the ground wins.

Prokick says: – kickboxing version of Simon says. Kickboxing moves are called out for the children to do; only they can’t do them unless a number is called after the move. If they do the move without the number being called then they are out. Last one standing wins.
All the happy ProKick Kids all go home a winner
