Your school is disciplined yet fun. We believe progressing our children through the various belts teaches them not only vital technical skills but imparts critical thinking and patience. In the short-time Sebastian has trained there we have recognized a greater positive-energy and overall more-confident child. As an example he enjoys teaching his younger brother Alexander his first kata and speaks highly of his Senseis and practices his own kata on a daily basis. While Sebastian has always been a positive, well-organized child we see these traits developing even more and we owe it to your school’s thorough and encouraging training program.

“We love Full Circle Martial Arts. My son, Ryan, has become so confidante while he has been in karate. He has more pride and self esteem in what he does everywhere, and that you cannot learn in a class classroom. Now, he little brother is following in his footsteps at Full Circle, and we couldn’t be more proud. As a parent, it was the best decision.”

Our daughter began asking to go to karate school when she was three. We thought it was a phase, but realized it wasn’t when her requests didn’t wane. We looked at schools in the area, but found them to be more about trophies and medals than discipline and intrinsic values, which is what we were looking for. We found that at Full Circle Martial Arts. She began her training in 2010, when she was five years old. Since that time, she has grown leaps and bounds. Her focus, listening, determination, skill set, and self-confidence have benefitted her, both on the dojo and in her daily life. The instructors are very knowledgeable and stress the importance of what karate is – spirit and technique that is necessary for mastery of the art. Expectations for all students are the same – character development, faithfulness, an ability to endure change and challenges, respect, and to use karate as a means to develop all of these wonderful character traits. They are understanding of each child’s individual needs and make accommodations as needed. We couldn’t be more satisfied with our choice and we recommend Full Circle to everyone!

They are AWESOME! I have two children enrolled and they both love it! I have done a lot of research and some trial and error and am so glad that we found Full Circle. What I like most about them is how they treat the kids and are patient in their development. I strongly recommend you reach out to them and check out a class. You will be impressed!

There are several things that set this dojo apart from others. Steve, Matt, Tim, Marty and others, are extremely experienced instructors with strong foundations in traditional martial arts that have eventually developed their own unique styles built on tradition, but evolved for application in today’s world. We focus on how to leverage traditional martial arts training (kata and routine drills) for conditioning and self defense. If a combination of techniques becomes more effective by incorporating bits and pieces from other art forms to be more effective, that is what we are taught to do. The instructors take turns teaching classes, which keeps it exciting and provides for deep differences in perspective and insight. The instructors and members are passionate and motivational and I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate being part of the dojo which is a constant positive in my life regardless of what else is going on.
