Today, we are happy to announce that we have added Sal Profaci to the Strategic Academy coaching staff. Coach Sal will be coaching the adult wrestling practices when we reopen and are able to offer classes again. We look forward to seeing everyone soon and believe this will be a great compliment to our grappling and mixed martial arts program.

Not only was Sal a 2x D1 NCAA qualifier and placed 4th at the FILA Junior Nationals. He possesses a very technical style, grit and a very intelligent and cerebral approach. While in college, Sal was names Geico Student Athlete of the Week. During his final year, he was ranked 12th in the nation during final season at American, and was slated to compete at the D1 NCAA Championships before the tournament was canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic.
