Sanuces Ryu Jujitsu

docmosesDoctor Moses Powell was born in 1941. He is a member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame and the World Karate Hall of Fame, and was the first martial artist invited to demonstrate his skills before the United Nations. He was the first black man to instruct the Secret Service and the F.B.I. The Benin Empire of West Africa awarded him the International Benin Award in 1972 for his community work and efforts throughout the world.

In 1959, Powell founded Sanuces Ryu Jujitsu, a style stressing survival by simplicity and the practicality of street applications—it is known as the "eye-to-eye, heart-to-heart" style of Jujitsu. Sanuces Ryu aims to use the powerfulness of Karate, the agility of Boxing, the speed of Arnis Stick Fighting and the nerve attacks and joint locking of Jujitsu.

"...Sanuces Ryu teaches the "Art": the movement of an intelligent mind, controlling a disciplined body in a display of speed, form, technique, power and gracefulness…” -- - Moses Powell

Doctor Moses Powell departed on January 22, 2005.
