Andy Dickinson is one of martial art's highest achievers. he has spent many years traveling and studying many methods of martial arts worldwide.
I truly desire to achieve skill, the ability to receive my black-belt for mastering techniques and the art. I also hope, by that time my training in Japanese language will also improve. In my desire I'd be able to achieve these goals faster but in reality I know my circumstances cause me to take it slow.
However, I prefer to move slowly and achieve my goals and do it properly, than to either give up or not qualify to even have a chance. North star Ju Jitsu has been a blessing to find, for it has been so enjoyable. With my last few years of extreme challenges and health issues, I have found myself feeling stronger inside, knowing that slowly, I am able to take steps forward.
Along with dance (middle eastern dance) taking the classes here have also boosted my confidence. As a solo-mother I found it difficult to make time for myself. Now that my son is two, I actually find him watching me train and trying copy me and the class on screen in the Ju Jitsu sessions! -Ren-
