    Northstar Martial Arts Sydney CBD


    Northstar programs are taught by Darren Higgs and our world-class trainers. Darren has had many years of training under Sensei Andy Dickinson towards his martial arts goals, including obtaining his 4th Dan Black Belt in the Northstar Ju Jitsu system and 3rd Dan Black Belt in Budo Jitsu. Darren’s real passion is teaching the martial arts to his fellow students, both adult and children.

    Darren, in the spirit of the Northstar Ju Jitsu system, gets particular satisfaction out of seeing the students become all that they can be in all aspects of their life. Darren thoroughly enjoys his training and tries to pass on that enthusiasm to his fellow students.

    Darren has competed successfully overseas, including winning the IBJ Asia Pacific Title at the 2005, 2013 and 2017 SAW International Championships held in Tokyo, Japan. Darren was also Captain of the Australian team that competed in the ISJA World Championships in Poland 2013. Darren also won Silver Medal at the 2017 WCJJO World Ju Jitsu Championships held on the Gold Coast.
