The pressure was on at this the last ProKick Exam of 2014 as the search for kickboxing excellence continued at Northern Ireland’s top kickboxing gym. There will be photos posted in the gallery from Wednesday’s grading over the coming days.

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 with a training regime of on average of three to four times a week.

Check the ProKick HQ training schedule and move into your the appropriate class for your level.
