Fierce in battle yet gentle in life. Shinbudo immortalizes the spirit of the ancient samurai in modern society. Shinbudo is a newer, evolved approach to martial arts and life relevant to our society and culture.
Shinbudo is a Martial Art that teaches immediate and practical fighting skills that can be learned, assimilated and used quickly and immediately by men and women of all ages. Simple defensive combinations are taught in all ranges of fighting. These include distant fighting with long range kicks and punches, in close fighting with knees, elbows and standing grappling and control on the ground.
At Northstar we say 5 minutes to learn, a life time to master. We guarantee that even after your first class you will have usable skills that will stay with you for life.
There is plenty of kicking and punching, plenty of pad work and our classes are really safe so don’t worry about getting hit or getting hurt. The classes mix in plenty of strength and conditioning work and they are excellent for fitness and endurance. Our classes are well attended by both men and women.
Before you go any further I want to make our commitment to you clear. There are so many great benefits from learning martial arts, it really is a great road of personal discovery and I want to share my experiences with you. With the help of the highly trained Northstar Staff we want to make your training experience as enjoyable as possible. We commit to make you feel welcome and give you the confidence to trust in our support, working with you individually, enabling you to fully express yourself & reach your potential in martial arts.

Your first step is to become a member and receive your White Belt. As a White Belt we want you to just get used to the ideas, philosphies and simple techniques that will enhance your life. You will quickly learn basic self defence skills and at the same time start to feel changes in your body as you get fitter and stronger.
