Jesse was first invited to Europe in the 1980s where he gave private lessons to Keith Kernspecht and also taught seminars for Keith's organization. Jesse’s skills soon became known in Europe and people began to seek him out, coming to train with him in Seattle. Over the years, many of these people became his friends and long-time students, coming to Seattle for weeks or months at a time to train. Additionally, Jesse continued to travel to Europe and give seminars until his passing in 2012.
Today in Europe martial arts instructors continue to teach and pass on the ideas, processes and lessons they learned from Jesse. Each student has his own method, curriculum and interpretation of NCGF based on their personal experience and unique training time with Jesse.
