  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

  • 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.

  • I recommend his academy to anyone, any age, regardless of your goal.

    I began my journey training at Vagner Rocha Martial arts. When I signed up I weighed 210lbs and was looking for something to get into since the gym was getting boring. I now weigh 160lbs and have learned so much. Vagner is a great instructor and now friend. 5 years later I’m confident in facing anyone. I recommend his academy to anyone, any age, regardless of your goal.
