THIS was the fifth ‘Prokick Says’ fun day and again it was a booming success as the standard of the kickboxing mad kids increase.
Kickboxing kids from all over the city took 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.
Prokick coach Eddie Salmon said: “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 Billy Murray invented which we all have played for many, many years at the gym, ‘Prokick Says’ is our version of Simple Simon Says.
“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. Our motto is Truth, Discipline and Respect.”
The Prokick Says fun day has taken place once a month at Billy Murray's Wilgar Street gym in east-Belfast for the last seventeen months.
