Best martial arts school in the area! Master Charles Jackson and his team of Certified instructors are top notch with training. Master Jackson is not only a great instructor but a mentor to the children and young adults of Full Circle Dojang. My daughters have been attending classes there for 2 1/2 years now and just can't get enough. I myself have finally started going to classes. I would recommend the adult classes for anyone who loves martial arts or just wants to get in better shape. The best part of Full Circle Dojang is they treat you like FAMILY!!

Fantastic program for kids to develop into confident productive citizens. Almost 4 years in with our oldest and our 4 year old just joined. Mr. Jackson provides the path and structure to make his students goal driven go getters.
Thank you!

From the minute you meet Charles you know that he is super passionate about his work and the kids he works with. He is developing strong, confident leaders for our future and should be revered for taking on such a huge task. If you haven't started your child in karate yet, what are you waiting for? Charles is the man!

What a great dojang!!!!My daughter feels like family here. Mr. Jackson and his instructors are committed to their students. Love the fact that my young daughter has the opportunity to train with female instructors who show her that girls can and do excel at martial arts. I️ simply love everything about Full Circle and would and have recommend it many a times. Thanks again guys/gals.

I can’t say enough good things about This school! Charles and Jean treat every student & their parents like family and every instructor is top notch! The confidence, strength & pride they have instilled in my daughter is invaluable and her love for this sport no doubt is in part to the atmosphere and instructors at Full Circle.

Its all about the 25 acts of kindness

It’s all about the 25 gifts of kindness

Showing gratitude has always been a part of my life with things ranging from life-changing to trivial–from my children who hold my heart, to the sunrise over the ocean. Although I probably miss some days, I thought it seemed like the perfect time for me to say thanks.

I’m thankful for the rollercoaster ride my life has taken and all the people I have met along the way and the lessons I have learned.

As I sit here in my small office that I wish was a little less cluttered and a little more organized, the view of my box of 25 gifts of kindness makes all those stressors go away. You see in addition to teaching my students how to kick, follow rules and defend, I also expect them to do 25 things each month that they wouldn’t normally do that express kindness—from unpacking groceries to holding the door for a stranger.

It’s the little things. You might be surprised to hear that for 25 years I was a heavy machinery operator. I was good at what I did, but I yearned for more of a purpose.

Enter martial arts. Once I discovered martial arts, I was hooked. I learned the art and then worked nights in a studio in Jackson before stepping out on my own in 2006 here in Wanamassa. I have never regretted my career shift to pursuing martial arts full time. It no longer feels like my job. It’s more like my passion and mission. To me, martial arts is all about empowering the mind, body and spirit, and it doesn’t stop the moment they walk out my door. I am grateful for the opportunity to instill a lifetime of learning in my students.

So, with Thanksgiving upon us, I wanted to thank those who have supported me along the way.

To my students, I thank you for teaching me new things every day and enriching my life beyond measure. Your 25 Acts of Kindness always give me hope and inspire me to do better every day. And thank you for allowing me to teach you and maybe make your lives a little better.

To my colleagues, I thank you for your unwavering commitment to our studio and your tireless energy in serving our students. We couldn’t accomplish what we do without the teamwork we have, so thank you for making that possible.

To my family and friends, I thank you for your support throughout the years with the business and life in general. My family, you are always behind me 100%. Thank you to my wife who never leaves my side in spite of some bad days working in the office because she recognizes the importance of my dream. I’m forever grateful for their unwavering support.
