Northstar Ju Jitsu immortalises the spirit of the ancient samurai in modern society. The program is a newer, evolved approach to martial arts and life relevant to our society and culture.
Developed by Sensei Andy Dickinson, Northstar Ju Jitsu integrates traditional elements of ju jitsu, taekwondo, judo and kick boxing into a holistic practice of self-defence and fitness, and also as a space for personal growth within our hectic modern lives. It will take you 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.
Northstar Martial Arts classes teach immediate and practical fighting skills that can be learned, assimilated and used quickly. 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.
For men, sparring and effective self-defence is a must. You can join the sparring class and test your skills against others in a robust and safe training environment. If competition is your thing, teams regularly train for local and international competitions.
Women can defend themselves. Even after a short time training at Northstar you will have useable and practical moves that can be used on a larger, stronger opponent. You will learn to kick, punch and defend yourself in many different situations. No matter what your size or fitness level, you will be taught to generate explosive power by using your entire body weight to strike weak points. Martial Arts is also one of the best fitness classes for women. But Northstar Ju Jitsu is much more than a fitness class. As you feel good about your weight loss, increased flexibility and new levels of stamina and energy, your confidence will shine. Kick, punch, and block yourself to a fitter healthier mind, body and spirit. People will notice the difference in you. You are more patient, relaxed and stress is easier to handle. Have peace of mind knowing that your awareness is heightened, your reactions sharpened and your instinct to survive fully awakened.
