MASTER JERRY RIOS
Hello there, my name is Jerry Contreras Rios. I am the Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan U.S.A. instructor for
Nine Limbs Strikers. I have been practicing Martial Arts since I was 13yrs old (1985). I started out in the
Kajukembo Self-Defense Systems. I earned my 1 st Degree Black Belt when I was 18yrs old then I joined
the United States Marine Corps. I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan and joined a Go-Ju Ryu class. I was
unable to explore the art because I was deployed. I was stationed at Cherry Point, NC in 1994 and
located a Taekwondo class. During my time training in Kajukembo, I earned my 3 rd Black Belt. I earned a
1 st Dan under Grandmaster Michael Wood. I also trained with Grandmaster Missy Cann and earned a 1 st
Dan under her thru the Kukkiwon system of Taekwondo. I met Grandmaster Kurt E. Wells in 2012 and I
have been his student since then. I am currently a 6 th Degree Black under the Taekwondo Moo Duk
Kwan U.S.A. system (Grand Master Wells). I look forward to helping others in their journey in the
Martial Arts. “You’ll only get better”.
