Kickboxing Instructor Jesse Yowell started Kickboxing in 2009, looking for an alternative to going to the gym. Having been inspired by films such as Kickboxer and Ong Bak as well as early 90s fighting video games, he wanted to give Hwa Rang Kwan a try. After the first class, he was hooked and has been going to class ever since.

He has studied under Master Steve Rapport, Gabriel Stuckey, and Kenya Prach, and his classes are a mix of fundamentals somewhere between Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai.

Jesse has always remembered the Zen-like answer he was given when he asked Instructor Gabriel how he got really good with his punching techniques: "You never do, you keep on practicing and trying to get better than the previous day."

You can always find Jesse at HRK, refining his jabs, teaching how to throw devastating leg kicks, and trying to get better than the previous day.
