For over twenty years Toll Bar Business Park has been home to one of the most successful sports clubs in the north west of England.
Alf’s Blackbelt Academy have for many years been competing in kickboxing events all over the World. The success of this not for profit club founded by Alf Love back in 1991 has been remarkable with over 100 World Kickboxing titles won by its students in a seventeen year period.
Alf’s philosophy of making the academy available to everyone including the less fortunate and his own unrivalled passion for martial arts have been the mainstay of its success, with lessons daily comprising jujitsu, freestyle karate and kickboxing available to students from 4 years of age to over 50 the academy is one of the iconic sporting clubs in the Rossendale Valley and a much valued pillar of the community.
After relocating into a far better facility within Toll Bar three years ago the academy now in its 26th year seems to have gone from strength to strength with its fighters setting a new record in the number of medals won (33) and golds won (22) at a single World Championships in 2016.
B & E Boys are extremely proud to be associated with such an amazing success story and wish the academy continued success in the future.
