The grading will see Kickboxing mad students from the age of 6 - 66 years-old go through the ProKick exams with a series of tests covering different aspects from the sport which will hopefully elevate them to the next level covering belts from Yellow right up to the last brown belt- registration must be made in advance..
When deciding on who is eligible to grade, the instructors take into consideration a variety of factors.
Knowing the techniques isn't enough, all students, Junior or Senior must show the correct amount of effort, respect, attendance in classes and discipline in class to become eligible.
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.
White - Yellow 3 months once a week
Yellow - Orange 3 Months Twice a week
Orange - Green 6 Months Twice a week
Blue, Purple & Brown 1 Year twice a week
Brown level 2 & 3 are every 3 months. Three times a week Adults only.
Black Belt a total of 8 years and in some cases longer after the completion of the above. Black Belt is free as it is taken on time spent and loyalty to the gym.
