"Excellent demeanor, patience and teaching levels from all the instructors"

“I brought my son in to try a free month, needless to say it wasn’t necessary. I signed him up two year ago. To date, my 7 year old son is now ranked first in the state of Florida, first in the region, and in the top ten at the national level amongst 13 year olds. There is an excellent demeanor, patience and a variety of teaching levels from all of the instructors. Vagner Rocha is the head instructor and he teaches the classes personally. He recognizes each child’s strength and weaknesses, and he pairs them up accordingly to ensure that each child excels. Not many schools offer a true UFC Fighter just a couple of feet away from your child, giving them directions personally. Yes, South Florida has many good schools, but few schools have the concentration of skill-tested fighters. You want to be the best, then Train with the Best."

"My son is also learning about hard work, commitment, dedication and being a part of a team"

hollywood florida martial arts“I live in Plantation and drive to Pembroke Pines three to four nights a week so that my 13 year old son can train with Vagner at VRMA. There are a lot of places where he could train that are closer to our home, but I have found that Vagner and all the guys there push him to do his best and do it with respect. He is not only learning BJJ from one of the best practitioners in the state, but my son is also learning about hard work, commitment, dedication and being a part of a team. He is learning very well – he has the medals to prove it! The all around confidence my son has gained in the past year is well worth the drive and I would highly recommend Vagner and VRMA to anyone!"

"You are treated like family"

BJJ hollywood florida"From the minute I walked into my first class at the school, I fell in love. This school is the best around. No egos here. Everyone is there to train and train hard. You walk in to a smile, a hello, a hug, or a hand shake. You are treated like family. Vagner and his crew are some of the best in the business. I promise you will walk out of the classes satisfied and with a smile on your face, just itching to go back for more because you will become addicted, as I did."

"VRMA is a family oriented Jiu Jitsu school"

"About a year ago, my 9 yr old son started training at Vagner Rocha Martial Arts (VRMA).  I couldn't be happier! My son's technique has improved tremendously, thanks to the dedication of these top class instructors. It is obvious that all of the instructors love the sport of Jiu Jitsu, and that they want to make sure all students succeed and take their training to the next level. During any class, you could walk in and see all of the instructors on the mats watching, teaching and helping the kids perfect the different techniques. This makes a HUGE difference as the kids get one on one training with the instructors. Vagner Rocha, who recently won "Best Pro MMA Fighter in Florida," personally teach the classes. VRMA is a family oriented Jiu Jitsu school.  Vagner's wife and kids also train with him. Step your game up!!  Give VRMA a try, you won't be disappointed."

Alex Gonzalez "quickly got in shape"

Alex has been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu now for 5 years, he started his training for same reasons a lot of people do: to lose weight! He soon realized that in this martial art, it was about much more than just losing weight. He came from a boxing background but with a busy lifestyle, he became overweight. After his first 2 months of training Jiu Jitsu, Alex lost 50 pounds! He improved his stamina, cardio, eating habits, etc. Alex is a purple belt under Vagner Rocha and he is much more active in his training today than ever before. In addition, his son, Alex Gonzalez Jr., also does BJJ. He is a much more confident kid due to his training at VRMA. It is wonderful for this Father and son to be competing in local tournaments, both winning and becoming champions together! *

"Vagner & his instructors treats my children as if they were their own"

kids martial arts miramar“If you’re searching for a place to get in shape, get healthier, learn self defense, push yourself, and make life-long friendships, then you need to be training at VRMA. I found them by shear coincidence, after being ready to give up on any sort of training. I have only been with them for one year and it has changed my life. When I first started I was 257 lbs, out of shape and completely over weight. I was going to the doctor for just about everything, from my knees to my back, to hips and ankles. Vagner and his staff of instructors provided me with tools, encouragement and honest commitment to help me get back in shape, and getting me stronger than I was when serving as a U.S. Marine. My sons, who both have developmental delays, issues of confidence and aggression, also train at VRMA and it has become a bonding experience for me and my boys. The training increased their focus, confidence and work ethic by leaps and bounds. The difference between my boys now and before having trained with Vagner, as well as his staff, is night and day. I am very over protective of my children, but Vagner and his instructors treat my children as if they were their own, I can go on about my day knowing that they are being trained by one of the best in BJJ today. The instructors and students at VRMA are the best I have come across in a very long time. They have become more than just Instructors and training partners but have become like a family. As my son tells his friends, ‘if you are not training at Vagner Rocha Martial Arts, you are not training.'"
