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

Over 50 ProKick kids age 6-12 took part in the competition The first in our ongoing series of ‘PROKICK SAYS’ children’s competition day was a resounding success at the Prokick Gym in Belfast this week.
Over 50 underage talents took part in the event aimed at improving fitness, discipline and co-ordination.
The fun day also gives young kickboxers an opportunity to experience competition using their martial art skills.
Prokick coach Billy Murray said: “Our monthly competition for kickboxing mad kids was a tremendous success last year there's no reason why it can't be the same this year. The kids absolutely love the competition doing all the kickboing moves wthout 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.
“I wanted to give the young members an opportunity to put their skills into practice, mixing competition with fun. The idea stems from a game we have played for many, many years at the gym, Prokick Says, our version of Simple Simon Says.
“We have rolled a number of games into one big occasion and the kids love it. Everyone was a winner and everyone went 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 Prokick Says fun day will take place once a month at Murray's Wilgar Street gym in east-Belfast.

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.
