For over a decade now, Master Lowndes and his Team have been developing Blackbelt Leaders to become the most successful and reputable private martial arts academy in the Worthing area.
Here at Blackbelt Leaders we aim to help your child increase their Confidence, Focus, Concentration, Physical Abilities and Self Discipline as well as setting them up to make Good Choices, as all of these aspects are the keys to performing well in school, sport and life!
We understand that it's very difficult to “Teach” a Person Self-Discipline, but we can help your child “Experience” And “Appreciate” the benefits of “Being” Disciplined.
Our Team know that Confidence truly is the key to Self-Defence, staying safe and stopping the bullies and we will help your child to be be bully proof and become the most popular in their class! as well as being better behaved, getting great grades and become physically fit and healthy.
Our Team teach all of these valuable life lessons in a safe, clean and professionally operated full time martial arts academy.
Our FreestyleX programme teaches the benefits mentioned by using a modern teaching philosophy that is designed to teach within a structured class where your child will be encouraged to progress at their current rate of ability and speed.
We teach the concept of personal victory and it is the Team's responsibility to make sure that each time your child comes to class, they are presented with a challenge where, if they do their best they will be successful. We feel that this is the key secret for building success in all areas of your child's life.

Alfie started attending Blackbelt Leaders after the Olympics finished last year. We love everything about it - Alfie enjoys the discipline and knows exactly where the boundaries lie - it has become a really safe for him. He has worked with Master L, Mister I and Miss A and is happy with all of them. When he first started attending, he was quite self-conscious, and spent the first few lessons sitting on my lap watching the class. They were so patient with him, and gradually coaxed him onto the mats - now he's the first one on each week! The lessons have really increased his confidence - they also teach life skills and coaching - and this has extended to other areas of his life eg:helping him to have the courage to go in the deep end at the swimming pool. Alfie goes twice a week and is always at the door, with his kit packed, ready to go! They are very approachable there, and always ready to listen and take on new ideas.
I was looking for a martial arts class that not only taught physical wellbeing but also philosophy of life. When I found Blackbelt Leaders for my son Thomas I was delighted as they have a global teaching approach. Their focus is not only on fitness and behaviour but on a bigger picture. Thomas enjoys two classes a week and would like to attend more.
When martial arts was suggested by Miss Abrahams for my children I was more than sceptical as they have differing levels on the autistic spectrum and physical disabilities. Initially just my son attended, but when I saw how quickly his behaviour was improving, the others started to attend to. One of my daughters had violent tendencies and had been isolated in a classroom at school for over a year, and I was called into school most days - she has now learnt to control her temper and is a totally different child - now becoming more integrated at school, even taking part in a school play which was unthinkable previously. The self-confidence of all of my children has shot up, and their fitness levels have increased dramatically. The staff there also provide great support to the parents and I can't praise them all highly enough.
My son started his journey with BBL 3 years ago at the age of 10. Since then he has griwn from a very shy boy to a confident 13 year old, able to mix with his peers and adults. The team at BBL are welcoming, friendly and supportive from the onset. They are concerned with the child as a whole and the family who encourage their child to action their goal of blackbelt. Their focus is not solely on technique, fitness and stamina but on respect and discipline, which i see so many children thrive on. They encourage all to show consideration to others and gives a feel of a 'big happy family'. The professionalism of BBL team ensure they give their best to all who are part of and want to achieve blackbelt. My son is now a proud blackbelt and on the road to becoming a second degree blackbelt.
Oscar started at black belt leaders when he was 4 and half. He absolutely loves it. He practices at home and it has helped with his energy levels!!
I think the involvement of having all ages in the class is an advantage and benefits the younger students.
