Looks like he's really into the philosophical side of the art. He has some interesting approaches. Thanks or sharing it.

Love his enthusiasm in general, the video(s) are pretty inspirational.

I agree with you guys. I feel the way he teaches and speaks means that people will listen to what he says

I have his site bookmarked, he has some great motivational clips and articles.
You can see passion in everything he puts out there.

He seems quite young, as well. What is his rank?

I have some memory of crossing paths with him when I wandered around. He is quite well informed about karate and has done much research by spending time training and discussing different aspects with many of experts and masters.

His grade is not something i consider important because of his significant contribution to explaining karate in layman's terms and making it accessible to younger audiences. As a wild guess based on his level of understanding, I believe he could be between 3rd and 5th Dan( a bit of a stretch give his age)

Jesse, from what I've seen of him, is a black belt that CAN teach! He has the ability to capture, as well as keep, the attention of the room while he's on the floor. He carries that confidence, not the smug confidence, that he belongs on the floor, and those in the room, want him on the floor. He's quite affable, quick with a smile, believable, challenges those he's training, knowledgeable, etcetera...in short, yeah, he's got skills!!
