who is northstar?

Northstar Ju Jitsu is a unique set of self-defence programs for children and adults that integrates traditional elements of Ju Jitsu, Taekwondo, Judo and kick boxing.

Northstar Ju Jitsu was developed by one of Marital Arts highest achievers, Andy Dickinson, specifically for our hectic modern lives as a practice for self-defence and fitness, but also personal growth.

The Northstar system has 4 specific programs; 3 for children in different age groups; Little Stars (3-4), Bright Stars (5-8) and Super Stars (9-14); and a separate class for adults with regular workshops for the different needs for women and men.

Northstar Ju Jitsu is different because it's the only system developed for Australia and all trainers are graduates of the Northstar system.

There are classes everyday at the two main Northstar Martial Arts Dojos located at Balmain and North Sydney. (Dojo is Japanese for training studio) The Northstar Ju Jitsu programs are also run by former students of Andy in Sydney CBD, Baulkham Hills, Kellyville, Marsfield and Panania. Also in Perth suburbs of Subiaco and Dianella.

From your very first free lesson you'll take away helpful self defence moves and tips. In three months you'll be fitter and have learnt the basic self defence. In 12 months, you'll be at least a green belt and on your way to a black belt (usually 2-4 years).

Just fill in your details in the inquiry box in the top right for a free lesson and you'll be on your Northstar journey to train yourself – physically, mentally and spiritually. See you at the Dojo!
