Martial Arts

Full Circle Jujitsu is taught as a self defense based martial art drawing upon Professor Alessandro Ashanti’s over 40 years of practice. We also teach the Filipino Martial Art of Eskrima Serrada.

Learning Full Circle Jujitsu

Full Circle Jujitsu is always evolving, and so are its students. Based in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area,  we offer classes at several times. We teach both 

 Full Circle  Jujitsu and the Filipino Martial Jujitsu and the Filipino Martial Art of Serrada Eskrima. Full Circle Jujitsu classes are upbeat, energetic, relaxed, yet focused on producing results and growth.

Before joining this school I considered myself to be a decent fighter based on striking

only to realize there was so much more to it than that(a nd that i truly didn’t know much at all. Professor Ashanti has helped me develop a  warrior’s mindset and has also helped build my skill set ten fold. While most schools will teach you how to fight for competitions or cages/rings. This school teaches you how to survive and I would recommend this school to anyone of any age.

Awesome instructors!!! My twins just started here and absolutely love it.

My grandkids love this place. Sensei is patient and makes the lessons fun for the kids. They separate out the kids by age so the little ones are not scared. The staff is very clear on acceptable behavior on the mat.  They also taught a anti bullying class for the kids, taught them how to defend themselves. It was great. I am very happy with the process they use.

4th Degree Black Belt

“As a black belt in another system, I see what most average people can’t see.

Prof. Alessandro Ashanti is a high level Jujitsu and FMA instructor. I have been fortunate to attend some training sessions he has taught at and his techniques are definitely effective. His instructions are clear and he breaks it down that anyone, even new students can pick it up.”

Great place to receive training. Professor Ashanti applies practical techniques for real life situations and breaks them down for everyone to understand not just physically, but mentally as well. Respect is taught alongside discipline, and best of all, it’s a very friendly atmosphere.

Chris F.
4th Degree Black Belt

“I’ve known Professor Alessandro Ashanti Bovoso nearly 30 years, as when 

we met I was a beginner in Martial Arts training and he was a talented student under Master Chaka Zulu. In the decades since I’ve witnessed his exponential success in training, teachings, promotion and other contributions to the Martial Arts world as a whole. His dedication, innovations and contagious motivation as a Martial Arts practitioner has been inspirational to those who have been privileged to train with him, being both empowered and enlightened by his unique teaching methodology and genuine desire for his students well being. Any individual, be they a novice white belt, seasoned veteran instructor or somewhere in between owes it to themselves to partake in the combative genius and life preservation skills that he possesses and generously shares thru Full Circle Jujitsu.”

While you continuously learn very key and core fundamentals in Full Circle Jujitsu, you also learn how to be in the moment and flow with what presents itself in a time of conflict. Full Circle Jujitsu teaches with an emphasis of detail, required to properly execute each move. Additionally our staff has the expertise to not only teach the style well, but also tailor it to each students abilities regardless of age or physical limitations.
