Northstar Martial Arts Marrickville


Esprit Martial Arts in Marrickville teaches martial arts and self-defence designed for both adults and children of all ages and represents martial arts for everyone. It is a simple, yet effective, self defence system that blends the best moves from all the successful styles. You will get incredibly fit, have fun and make lifelong friends alongside our students who come from Marrickville, Dulwich Hill, Enmore, Stanmore, Newtown, Ashfield, Rockdale, Petersham, Wolli Creek, Hurlstone Park, Earlwood, Erskineville, Camperdown and most other suburbs in the inner west of Sydney.

Esprit Martial Arts Head Instructor and owner, Debra Cooksey, has been a long-time student and trainer with Sensei Andy Dickinson of Northstar Martial Arts. Deb’s initial exposure to martial arts was as a parent of two young children, both of who are in their early teens and have already become Junior Black Belts in the Northstar Ju Jitsu system.

Early in her martial arts journey, Deb started teaching children which then progressed to include adults and this passion has continued over the last 10 years. Deb is a 2nd Dan Black Belt (training for 3rd Dan) and has a Coaching Accreditation level 2.

Esprit was founded by father and son, John and Lachlan. The baton has now been handed to
mother, son and daughter, Deb, Lachlan and Georgia. The dedication and commitment to
provide the best martial arts experience and empower children and adults alike remains

Deb balances a successful corporate career with running meditation classes to raising her two
children, Lach and Georgia. Deb is a Reiki Usui and Meditation Teacher. All children’s trainers at Esprit have W.W.C (Working with Children Check) and Senior First Aid.

Beginners welcome in every class. For more information email
