  • Vagner and his instructors are incredible

    If you are looking for a quality Brazilian Jiujitsu gym to train at with a family atmosphere, this is it. My husband, our 4 children, and I, trained at VRMA with Vagner and his crew for quite some time before we moved out of state. Vagner and his instructors are incredible, and they all kindly received each one of us with open arms. Our youngest son has special needs. He was taught, allowed to train and compete, and treated no different than any other child in the class. The values that our children were taught at VRMA are life lessons that will never be forgotten, and the love shown to our family by Vagner, his instructors, and his family will forever hold a special place in our hearts- we will forever be grateful for each and every one of them and will always consider them all family.

  • No matter your experience and fitness level at VRMA you'll see the difference.

    For those who ware looking to get healthy, gain some confidence, get in shape, make great friends and learn the best form of martial arts from one of the best in the world today, then you need to be training at VRMA, when I started over a year ago I was an overweight, out of shape Marine Veteran, a year later I am healthier, stronger than I was while I was serving as a U.S. Marine, more focused and found something that me and my boys who also train at VRMA can do together. My boys love training at VRMA. Vagner and his instructors treat them as family. I am very over protective of my children and I can honestly say I can leave my children in their care and know everything is going to be all right. Vagner and his instructors have helped my sons overcome their fears, confidence and self esteem issues, and learning disabilities. They have become more disciplined, focused and respectful. Since training at VRMA my sons have become better students in school getting better grades, and taking on more challenging assignments and responsibilities in the class room. My family and will not train anywhere else. The staff and students at VRMA are more than just instructors and sparring partners to Team Rodgers, they have become family. I would recommend this gym to anyone, no matter your experience and fitness level at VRMA you’ll see the difference.
