Grandmaster Doctor Moses Powell (1941–2005), was a Black Martial Artist born in Norfolk, Virginia. He was the first martial artist to perform a demonstration for the United Nations.

He was also the first martial artist to teach martial arts and self-defense to the FBI, DEA, and Secret Service. He held the honor of instructing Wesley Snipes and appeared as a featured performer at the World’s Fair. He appeared along Chuck Norris in the documentary, the Warrior Within.

Grandmaster Doctor Moses Powell was best known for founding the Sanuces Ryu Jujutsu system. Before his passing in 2005, Grandmaster Roy Richmond studied with him and learned Sanuces-Ryu Eye-to-Eye Jiu Jitsu in 2002.

    I didn’t realize Grandmaster Doctor Moses Powell was best known for founding the Sanuces Ryu Jujutsu system. Or that he was also the first martial artist to teach martial arts and self-defense to the FBI, DEA, and Secret Service. Good stuff!

    The first to perform in front to the United Nations must have been such an amazing honor for Grandmaster Doctor Moses Powell!

    I have watched the movie “The Warrior Within”, and I guess I recognise Grandmaster Doctor Moses Powell now. Back then I didn’t knew about him, but now I do (a bit to say the least); thanks to you.

    That is pretty cool that Grandmaster Roy Richmond got to work with Doctor Moses Powell and in turn, he got to work with Chuck Norris. His legacy will live on.
