  • Vagner Rocha Martial Arts Academy is an incredible place to train.

    Vagner Rocha Martial Arts Academy is an incredible place to train. Vagner himself is a great instructor and a world class competitor. I have nearly 30 years of Law Enforcement experience in the Miami area and have employed Jiu-Jitsu techniques as taught at the academy on violent criminal suspects to gain control of them. I can think of no other martial art school to recommend. I train with my sons and nephews. Great family environment!!!
