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!
I'm so happy to be a part of the VRMA familyMy 10 year old boys have been training in jiu jitsu since they were 6. When our original school closed down two years ago, we struggled to find another school that we liked, trying several that just weren’t the right fit for us. My kids were beginning to lose interest in jiu jitsu, but luckily a friend recommended that we come and try a class at VRMA. The boys tried a class there, and haven’t looked back since — we’ve found our new jiu jitsu academy!! The quality of the instruction that they receive with Vagner is top-notch, all of the instructors are wonderful with the kids and it is very hands-on learning — they get lots of mat time and work up a great sweat every class! My boys’ passion for the sport has reignited since we started at Vagner Rocha Martial Arts, and their skills have grown so much under Vagner’s tutelage. I’m so happy to be a part of the VRMA family and I would recommend this school to anyone that is looking for serious jiu jitsu instruction from highly skilled professionals in the sport! VRMA rocks!
Instantly he made me feel like part of the family
I met Vagner and started training with him in 2008 or 2009. Instantly he made me feel like part of the family. He helped me get in better shape and learn the principles of his Art. After moving to another area of the country and training with other schools, I can tell you personally there is no better school. Vagner is the best
