    I’ve been training jiujitsu(bjj) for about 7 years now. i have attended other school before. i recently moved to the broward area and wanted great school to join. A good friend of mine told me about Vagner Rocha school in pembroke pines so i decided to check it out. Coming in as a purple belt, i could tell u technic is key. It’s now been 12 months since i joined. He has corrected a lot of small details in my game i would miss in key moments, an in BJJ that’s what determines submission an just surviving. VRMA has great structure, discipline, attendance, a family environment. Vagner R. and Ruben A. (BJJ) black belts leading the way. I would like to thank them and the rest of the team for receiving me with open arms.

  • I highly recommend his school to any and everyone

    I have been training under Vagner for 10 years now and I can’t describe how much it has changed not only my life but also the lives of my children, my brother and his children as well. It’s more than just a business for Vagner but more of being added to his family while training there. I have been with him from white belt to black belt and wouldn’t have it any other way. I highly recommend his school to any and everyone for the best atmospheric training experience of your life.
