Meet Jesse Hull: The Heartbeat of Alaska Jiu-Jitsu

Jesse Hull is not just a name, but a legacy etched in discipline, excellence, and a relentless pursuit of martial artistry. His odyssey from a revered Infantry Paratrooper to a charismatic instructor in the United States Army exemplifies a life steeped in dedication and an unyielding spirit to empower others.

Unmatched Pedigree

Before embracing the tranquil yet potent world of martial arts, Jesse carved a niche for himself at the USARAK NCO Academy on Fort Richardson, Alaska, earning the accolade of the top-rated instructor for three consecutive years. His exceptional prowess saw him clinch the illustrious FY18 3rd Quarter USARAK NCO of the Quarter board title, a feat among 1,900 eligible NCOs within Alaska.

A New Chapter

Retirement opened the gates to a new battlefield for Jesse—Jiu-Jitsu. His indomitable spirit found a new home in the dojo, where as a retired MMA fighter and a committed Jiu-Jitsu brown belt under the tutelage of Professor Jordan Kontra at Legacy Jiu-Jitsu in Anchorage, Alaska, Jesse’s journey metamorphosed into that of a lifelong learner.

Jesse’s intellectual quest led him to Alaska Pacific University. Here, his passion for Outdoor Studies, with a focus on Adventure Therapy, intertwined with his martial arts journey. He pioneered a groundbreaking Jiu-Jitsu curriculum rooted in the Experiential Learning Model and Kolb Learning Method.
