Testimonials

Had our first women's self-defense training today and it was a great experience. The trainer, Keith, showed us basic level fundamentals today. The pace is excellent for beginners. Like Keith said, you can't learn all the techniques in an hour and a half, so we will be continuing the class every other Sunday. This is something I have always wanted to do and now we have an opportunity in the Alton area for women to learn not just self-defense but confidence. I'm so excited to start my journey at Strategic BJJ and look forward to continuing training!

I visited for a night of training, and even though the gym didn't have scheduled hours, they opened up and I was able to come in for a great training session! Keith is an amazing instructor who has dedicated many years to martial arts. If you're looking for a great gym, I highly suggest checking them out!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program
You will see the influences of Folk-style wrestling, Sambo, Judo, and other grappling arts in our BJJ classes and seminars. This variety comes from our instructors' varied training experience and their travels to train domestically and internationally. Our instructors have trained with so many wonderful instructors/practitioners from around the world, allowing us to develop a breadth of knowledge and great friendships along the way.  

Kickboxing/MMA Program
You will see the influences of our instructor's diverse martial arts background. Jon Rosener has a Black belt in TKD from Sonny Hatten, as well as years of experience working with MMA greats like Kyle Watson and well known Muay Thai instructors Jason Ciluffo, Micah Bagby, and Elmir Kulsoman. Jon is an experienced fighter and knows what it takes to make you a technical striker and get in fighting shape!

Summary
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 the Strategic BJJ Team! Let’s make the next part of our story a great one!
