Black Belt Attitude: Excellence


Each week we discuss a Black Belt Attitude topic with the kids in our Warrior Talk, this week the topic will be Excellence. Please pass this on to as many people as you can. Like dropping a pebble in a pond, the ripples can have a significant effect on someone else’s life.

Somewhere along the line we have stopped teaching, training, and expecting excellence. Living a Black Belt life is a constant reminder to commit yourself to continual improvement, strive for excellence, and fill your life with regular, rich learning experiences. 

Don’t be satisfied with coasting through or just getting by. Don’t be satisfied with almosts, or ‘near enough is good enough’. No matter where you are or what you are doing, always strive for and present excellence.


We are now taking registrations for our first Super Stars Sparring Championships for boys and girls aged 9-14 yrs on Saturday, September 14. This is going to be a great event giving our young martial artists a chance to put their skills on display for all to see.

For registrations and more information please visit our event page:


A reminder to both adults and kids that all classes start and finish on time. Adults – for your own safety, if you arrive at class after the initial stretch you will not be able to train. Kids – if you arrive at class after the initial stretch there will be no tape at the end of class. Unless there are extreme circumstances or prior notice there will be no exceptions. I know sometimes things can just get in the way, particularly for parents, but part of being a martial artist is having that black belt attitude and keeping your commitments, so try to make it to class on time.

NOW YOU CAN TRAIN AT HOME. See the preview

Great news – there is now a full Northstar Ju Jitsu interactive workout available on the Northstar online Academy. Not only is this course a great resource for adult NSJJ members, this is also a great opportunity for parents to see how the basic techniques are done correctly and then enjoy a workout at home with your children. Great for adults and children, you can now train and improve the basics wherever you are.

Check out the NSJJ-Interactive class now.


Andy Sensei (the founder of Northstar Ju Jitsu) has now released the first ever online instructional courses for the entire syllabus in Northstar Ju Jitsu. It is a fantastic opportunity to go that extra mile in providing adults detailed explanations with photo displays and video presentations as well as information on grading, sparring, and self defence. There is also a great module on the history of Northstar Ju Jitsu. It is designed to be used in conjunction with your class attendance.

The courses are available at:
