Northstar Ju Jitsu is designed to be a practical, fun, easy to learn system that instils the fundamentals of self-defence, confidence, discipline, respect, & focus in young children. Some parents may think martial arts promotes violence, but it’s actually the opposite, we help teach self-discipline and socialisation skills.

The Bright Stars program has been especially developed for 5 to 8 year olds as they confront wider social and physical situations in life. Northstar Martial Arts is different to an ‘in school’ Martial Arts for kids because of the student teacher ratio. We have 1 teacher to every 5 child. We make sure every student is getting the attention they need. Read testimonials.


Your child will be learning a combination of punches, kicks and self-defence moves developed from Taekwondo, kickboxing, Judo and Ju Jitsu. These forms have been combined and refined by Sensei Andy Dickinson over 30 years into the Northstar Ju Jitsu System. FAQ’s


Your child learns the fundamentals of martial arts that keep them physically fit, but also help with the benefits of good behaviour, teamwork, good manners, patience and trying their best. The program covers valuable lessons on bullying and stranger danger.

If your child is high energy or has ADHD the Northstar Ju Jitsu system is a great way to release that energy, master impulsiveness and focus concentration so they will be more able to sit still when needed and absorb more in school lessons.


The aim is to develop the habits of winners early. Children learn that consistent attendance creates perseverance and the ability to overcome difficulties. Developing an “I CAN” attitude and having that constantly reinforced in classes, opens the door to the gift of self esteem, confidence and self respect that will stay with your child for life.


The Bright Stars program benefits a spectrum of physical, mental, and social attributes. Developing these attributes early in life contributes to a healthy, happy adulthood. That’s why it’s important your kids start kicking today.
