  • Learn from the best, gain confidence, get in great shape, meet great people.

    Been training with Vagner since he first became a Jiu Jitsu instructor. I tell people all the time we are so fortunate to have one of the best Jiu Jujitsu practitioners in world teaching right here in Pembroke Pines. Vagner is a father, teacher, brother, and a great friend. If you want you or your kids to learn from the best, gain confidence, get in great shape, meet great people. Then this is the place. I highly recommend Vagner Rocha Martial Arts!

  • The instructors are great and the quality of instruction is top notch.

    I’ve been training at Vagner Rocha Martial Arts for a little over a year. I’ve now recently enrolled my son and he loves it there more than I expected. The instructors are great and the quality of instruction is top notch. Training at VRMA is unique and special in that you’re not just learning from a guy that talks about what he “used” to do. You’re learning from an active competitor that is still teaching and competing at the highest levels of jiujitsu as it evolves. There’s only a few schools in the entire state that can make that same claim.
