We are a Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu Academy who serves the greater Alton, Illinois area. You will see the influences of Folk-style wrestling, Sambo, Judo, and other grappling arts, in our classes and seminars. This variety comes from our instructors' varied training experience and their travels. Our instructors have trained with so many wonderful instructors/practitioners across the US and in several other countries, allowing us to develop a breadth of knowledge and great friendships along the way.
It is our continuing privilege to bring the martial arts we love to the people of the Riverbend area, including Alton, Godfrey, Bethalto, Wood River, East Alton, and beyond. Whether you want to learn some self-defense, competitive grappling, build confidence, get in better shape, or just to de-stress at the end of your day, you will love our classes. We hope to welcome you soon to Team Strategic BJJ. Let’s make the next part of our story a great one!
