I am personally very impressed! Professor Ashanti and his close family of students create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in which to learn and train, as well as welcoming my transition from another discipline. I look forward to continuing my journey with Full Circle!

Full Circle JuJitsu's Professor Alessandro is a welcoming, very qualified, trustworthy master who will lead you on an authentic journey of both physical and mental enlightenment. He is eager and skillful with his instruction from the fundamentals to the highest proficiency. His coaching and training ethics are a valuable resource if in search for something more than the typical main stream martial arts training options. His personal attention to his students’ interests and skill level is surprising and appreciated. He challenges each student individually according to their own strengths and weaknesses. This makes training with him a pleasure and unique because you’re growing and learning this art at your own pace and in your own way. We honor the opportunity and highly recommend him to anyone who is open to bringing their warrior training Full Circle.

Staff is very friendly. They welcome you in and make you feel very comfortable. They use a lot of repetition, which develops muscle memory. They're happy to answer any questions you might have.

The Reiki Symbols

While many know Reiki is a powerful healing method, few but the initiated know of the existence of the Reiki symbols that are used to focus that power. The Reiki symbols are characters derived from both Sanskrit and Japanese. While many in the Reiki community consider the characters to be of sacred value, it’s important to note that the characters are not proprietary to Reiki use. Indeed three of the four Reiki symbols have significance in Buddhist philosophy.

Traditionally the Reiki Ryoho (typically stated in English as “symbols”) were passed down from master to student in secrecy. Reiki students themselves were not allowed to keep written copies of the symbols, rather they would need to have them committed to memory. The publishing of the Reiki symbols in print and on the internet is the subject of much controversy among practitioners. Some feel that traditions of Dr. Usui (the founder of Reiki) should be honored while others feel that the characters on their own do not hold power to those who have not undergone a Reiki attunement with a Reiki master.

In respect for my Reiki teacher and own personal beliefs, I will discuss the Reiki Ryoho but will not publish them. They are easily found though.

The first symbol: Cho Ku Rei

The power symbol. A Reiki practitioner would use this symbol to increase the power of their healing. The symbol has many stand alone uses (cleaning negative energy, on the spot treatments, spiritual protection, etc.) and can also be used in conjunction with other Ryoho to enhance their power.

The second symbol: Sei He Ki

The symbol for emotional/mental harmony. A Reiki practitioner would use this symbol for calming the mind or emotions and to promote healing of such areas. The symbol clears emotional blockages, balances the spirit, and heals past traumas.

The third symbol: Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen

The symbol for distance healing. This symbol is used when a Reiki practitioner sends healing to a client who is in another area. The symbol can be invoked to promote healing in the past, present, or future.

The fourth symbol: Dai Ko Myo

This is the master symbol of Reiki and the most power of the Ryoho. It is only used by Reiki masters. It signifies intelligence and wisdom and can be used to heal the soul.
