There are multiple American JJ
schools around the Kansas City, MO & KS area. Some of their instructors include Steven A. Crawford who is the head instructor @ a AJJ in Overland Park, KS is a 7th Degree Black Belt in Shorinji Ryu JJ. Also Brad Jones is the head instructor at the other AJJ school in Overland Park, KS & he is a 5th Degree Black Belt in AJJ under Steve Crawford but from what it says on his site, training with him is by invitation only.
A little tidbit, my friend actually trains at AJJ in Overland Park, KS with Steve Crawford. I've met him & some of the fighters there & they all seem to be very cool & respectful. They have a decent size mat for rolling & 2 little cages.

And then there is Kansas City BJJ #(816)914-6527
. They probably have the best instruction in the Kansas City area in my opinion. Their head instructor is Jason Bircher & he is a Black Belt in BJJ under Renato Tavares. I can't speak from my own experience but only their credentials, they are unmatched in the Kansas City Metro Area. They apparently have a warehouse size training facility with a huge mat, MMA cage & lots of equipment.
