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!
If I could give VRMA 6 stars I would.Great gym. Great atmosphere. Definitely recommend for all experiences. Even if you think you know it all. You will learn a lot in just a few days. And if you think you’re too much of a slow learner they’ll work with you and won’t go on until you feel comfortable with the technique. If I could give VRMA 6 stars I would. Wouldn’t go anywhere else if they paid me.
VRMA is the magic place you’re looking for
I can’t accurately express how good VRMA is but, I will try.
First, whenever learning anything of value, who teaches and how they teach it is of utmost importance. When it comes to Jiujitsu, Vagner Rocha is beyond top notch. Why? Google him for yourself but, he is not only a traditionalist with old school work ethic but, he is relevant in today’s Jiujitsu world. His resume speaks for itself.
Secondly, his love for his art, love for his family, and love for his students makes his style of instruction more of a mentoring household rather than a place of business. His name is not only attached to the school, he teaches everyday, he picks who rolls against who because he knows his students strengths and weaknesses. In other words, you’re not just a client.
Next, Monkey see monkey do right? Well his fellow instructors are made from the same mold. So, when you’re taking one of the other classes in the morning, or on weekends, you are receiving the same high level Instruction. Additionally, the students become family. As a group we cherish this family. The feeling is palpable when you walk into the gym. Everyone wants to help each other become better, no one takes it easy on each other, always hard. Afterwards it’s hugs positive feedback and support. It’s incredible. I’m a fireman and I can compare to that brotherhood.
Lastly, at least for now, I hear parents come in because their children were being picked on, and or they’ve tried other places and felt their children didn’t get enough one on one attention. Well at VRMA there are at least 4 instructors on the mat to support Vagner and assure that the children are getting all the help they need. Our kids are super high level and more importantly, disciplined well behaved little humans. I have yet to see a parent not happy with VRMA.
Bottom line, of you’re looking for high level Jiujitsu training for you or your children ( we have many father/mother and son/daughter families), I can honestly say from experience, that VRMA is the magic place you’re looking for. Don’t take it from me though, come and see for yourself.
My son started here about a month ago he's 12 and his progress is exceptional
I started here about 3 1/2 years ago and i was looking for great jiujitsu with a good teacher that took the time to know all his students.(do to the fact thats how my other school was) what i found was a very technical school full of awesome and very tuff students as well as a great teacher full of knowledge. Everybody here competes and always gets at least top 3 if not 1st place so that shows how good this school is. My son started here about a month ago he’s 12 and his progress is exceptional and due to the personal attention the teachers give overall my very happy I’m here and plan on staying here for the long haul come by you will not be disappointed……
