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 Little Stars program is especially developed for 3-4 year old children and focuses on all the things they need to grow physically, mentally and socially. Northstar is different to an ‘in school’ Martial Arts for kids because of the student teacher ratio. We have 1 teacher to every 5 children. 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

The positive reinforcement techniques teach your child to approach the world with confidence, develop both gross and fine motor skills and also to be aware of themselves in public situations i.e. how to take turns, follow directions and manage frustration (no temper tantrums).


Martial Arts for children introduces to personal safety techniques, stranger danger, handling bullies, how to fall properly, and what to do if they become lost.


Above all this, your kids learn respect, whether from bowing or standing still and waiting for the next command, this can be the most important benefit. It often carries over into home helping to improve behaviour.


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 concentration to prepare them for school.


Most of all children love it. They can work at their own level because there is no pressure that they might let down the team, and as they learn new skills their confidence grows.


The Northstar Ju Jitsu program benefits span 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.
