Jesse Alfstad

Krav Maga Instructor

Jesse is our Krav Maga instructor who teaches the Glasgow classes. Originally from America, he moved to Scotland in 2003.

His fighting style is uniquely suited to Krav Maga. He specialises in hand to hand combat with focus on multiple attacker situations, armed attackers, third party protection and "dirty fighting".

He excels at demonstrating and explaining techniques in a fashion that enables his students to quickly learn new techniques and immediately implement them into their training regime.

In his free time he enjoys baking and spending time with his partner and parrots.
