Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely not! We teach kids self-defense as a tool for personal growth and development. Kids learn to treat others as they want to be treated. They learn to respect all living things - from their parents to their pets. Often, kids who are violent before joining our classes have changed and become non-violent individuals. So, in short, martial arts will not make your child violent!
There were 3 black belts teaching the kids class (something I have never seen in 10 years of training.)I dropped in for a Thursday evening class while on vacation, and it was a very welcoming and friendly environment. Everyone came up to me and introduced themselves and shook my hand, Vagner himself was super welcoming too.The level of instruction is very professional, some serious experience in the room; and (parents: pay attention) there were 3 black belts teaching the kids class (something I have never seen in 10 years of training.)There was a good mix of beginner through expert level people training and I had some great rounds.Great experience, will be back. If I lived in South Florida, this is where I would train.
I have seen huge improvements in my jiu jitsu
I came to Vagner’s school for 6 months not knowing what to expect. I was truly amazed. Not only it’s a family friendly environment and everyone very welcoming but I have seen huge improvements in my jiu jitsu. Vagner is not only a world class competitor but also an amazing instructor. He truly cares for his students, and makes sure they understand the technique being taught. Can’t wait to come and train here again.
