Full Circle (and Full Circle Jujutsu) is a blended style of martial arts that focuses on self defense and development of students founded by Professor Alessandro Ashanti, 8th degree black belt. Professor Ashanti has been training in the martial arts since his first class in 1980 and teaching since 1989. His first true Sensei (teacher) he met in 1986 and began training in the Jujitsu system of martial arts. The conceptual base of Jujitsu is the under pinnings and key to the blending of martial arts that Professor Ashanti has trained in during his career. Professor Ashanti continues to be a lifelong student and is always incorporating new knowledge learned back into Full Circle.
Our style encompasses the systems that professor Ashanti has studied:
Sansei Goju-Ryu Karate
Adigun Sipho Capoeira Angola
Eskrima (Serrada and Kada Anan)
And many other influences over the years.
Knowledge of the individual styles that Full Circle incorporates is not necessary. Within Full Circle you will not find complete separate systems taught; rather Full Circle seamlessly integrates techniques and concepts into its core art form. Opportunity to learn the individual systems that Professor Ashanti is qualified to teach will be available to students once their reach black belt level.
