Top notch instruction and vibe.

Dropped in while on vacation and got a day pass. Did advanced no-gi and gi fundamentals. Vagner himself took the time to talk and roll with me which was super cool. Everyone else was really nice too. Top notch instruction and vibe. Wish I could train here more often.

Vagner is the best instructor and provides the best training environment available in the area

I began my jiu jitsu journey nearly ten years ago under Vagner Rocha. I can say without a doubt, Vagner is the best instructor and provides the best training environment available in the area. Vagner is a world-class instructor and competitor, but his greatest value in my opinion is his maintaining a personalized, individual teaching style for all his students and a family atmosphere at his academy. I can’t thank Vagner and everyone at VRMA for the growth I’ve made as a jiu jitsu practitioner and person over the past decade.

It’s such a great environment for kids and parents.

I have my daughter enrolled here for the last 6 month. Not only has my daughter learning Ju Jitsu, but she is learning plenty of valuable life lessons. The coaches are the best! they treat my daughter like one of their own kids. It’s such a great environment for kids and parents. We have made great friends and a new family. I’m very happy my daughter is enrolled here.

This is a family oriented and positive place to be for all ages.

It was years ago that I had the honor to receive instruction with Vagner Rocha. We all knew we were in the presence of greatness. But now the entire world knows it too. Back then insiders knew. But now… Is there any competitions left he hasn’t placed first in? The head coach is an internationally proven world class black belt.

When in South Florida, if you are serious about receiving quite literally the best instruction on planet earth. You go to VRMA and you gon’ learn. Trust me. Also, it should be noted this is a family oriented and positive place to be for all ages.

The respect and relationships they’ve gained are priceless

I can’t speak any more highly of Vagner and his team. My niece and nephew have been training there for many years and since day 1 we’ve all be welcome and treated like family. Aside from the fitness aspect and learning an awesome sport, most importantly they are taught to be a great competitor and are instilled with awesome values! The respect and relationships they’ve gained are priceless, I’d highly recommend stopping by to check them out!

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 has a great family and value-based training atmosphere

Vagner is a world class athlete and competes professionally more than five times per year. Somehow, he finds time to be on the mat teaching virtually every class. Furthermore, he personally sees to individual athlete and team development as a trainer and manager.

Though his level of activity may seem impressive, the principles exhibited by Vagner and his team are even more important. When you are thinking about where to train, or where you want your kids to train, consider the environment. VRMA has a great family and value-based training atmosphere you won’t get anywhere else.

REALLY GREAT PLACE CANT SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH ABOUT IT!!

AMAZING GYM ! MY DAUGHTER ATTENDED HER FIRST SUMMER CAMP THERE AND LOVED IT. THE INSTRUCTORS WERE VERY PROFESSIONALLY MADE ME FEEL SUPER COMFORTABLE WITH LEAVING HER FOR THE FIRST TIME. THERE IS A REAL FAMILY FEEL INSIDE AND YOU CAN TELL HOW MUCH EVERYONE CARES ABOUT TEACHING AND HELPING EACH STUDENT WHETHER LITTLE OR BIG. SHE WAS SO EXCITED I STARTED HER IN THERE KIDS CLASS AND WHILE SHE ATTENDED I WAS ABLE TO TAKE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING CLASSES. NEVER FELT STRONGER OR IN BETTER SHAPE AFTER JUST A COUPLE WEEKS! REALLY GREAT PLACE CANT SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH ABOUT IT!!

Vagner and his instructors are incredible

If you are looking for a quality Brazilian Jiujitsu gym to train at with a family atmosphere, this is it. My husband, our 4 children, and I, trained at VRMA with Vagner and his crew for quite some time before we moved out of state. Vagner and his instructors are incredible, and they all kindly received each one of us with open arms. Our youngest son has special needs. He was taught, allowed to train and compete, and treated no different than any other child in the class. The values that our children were taught at VRMA are life lessons that will never be forgotten, and the love shown to our family by Vagner, his instructors, and his family will forever hold a special place in our hearts- we will forever be grateful for each and every one of them and will always consider them all family.

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.

Vagner Rocha Martial Arts Academy is an incredible place to train. Vagner himself is a great instructor and a world class competitor. I have nearly 30 years of Law Enforcement experience in the Miami area and have employed Jiu-Jitsu techniques as taught at the academy on violent criminal suspects to gain control of them. I can think of no other martial art school to recommend. I train with my sons and nephews. Great family environment!!!

No matter your experience and fitness level at VRMA you'll see the difference.

For those who ware looking to get healthy, gain some confidence, get in shape, make great friends and learn the best form of martial arts from one of the best in the world today, then you need to be training at VRMA, when I started over a year ago I was an overweight, out of shape Marine Veteran, a year later I am healthier, stronger than I was while I was serving as a U.S. Marine, more focused and found something that me and my boys who also train at VRMA can do together. My boys love training at VRMA. Vagner and his instructors treat them as family. I am very over protective of my children and I can honestly say I can leave my children in their care and know everything is going to be all right. Vagner and his instructors have helped my sons overcome their fears, confidence and self esteem issues, and learning disabilities. They have become more disciplined, focused and respectful. Since training at VRMA my sons have become better students in school getting better grades, and taking on more challenging assignments and responsibilities in the class room. My family and will not train anywhere else. The staff and students at VRMA are more than just instructors and sparring partners to Team Rodgers, they have become family. I would recommend this gym to anyone, no matter your experience and fitness level at VRMA you’ll see the difference.

The coaching provided to the kids at VRMA is at the highest level you can find. The coach to child ration is perfect and the kids learn discipline while working hard and having a great time. The program for adults is equally impressive. From my first day the atmosphere at the school was inviting while still providing the appropriate level of competition I was looking for.

One of the best martial arts schools you can attend.

Can’t say enough about Vagner Rocha and his dojo. My boys trained with him for over a year before us having to move away. One of the best martial arts schools you can attend. I refer all my friends his way because I know first hand the level of attention and skill they will receive. Proud to say I’ve known Vagner for a few years now and always treats us like we are still part of his family.

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.

Vagner Rocha Martial Arts is by far one of the best academies in SoFlo. Vagner and all the coaches ensure your kids not only learn Jiu Jitsu but they also instill discipline, perseverance and drive that your kids will utilize in all aspects of their life.

I'm so happy to be a part of the VRMA family

My 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!

He is also learning about hard work, commitment, dedication and being a part of a team

I live in Plantation and drive to Pembroke Pines three to four nights a week for my 13 year old son to train with Vagner at VRMA. There are a lot of places where he could train that much 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 (and he’s learning well I will say – he has the medals and swords to prove it!) he is also learning about hard work, commitment, dedication and being a part of a team. 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!

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.

His techniques are proven to work at the highest levels of competition, so if that’s your focus, look no further; if you are not into competition, his and his staff’s attention to detail will help you achieve your goals, whatever they are: to get in shape, increase confidence, learn to defend yourself.

WANT A GREAT SCHOOL, THIS IS IT!

I’ve been training jiujitsu(bjj) for about 7 years now. i have attended other school before. i recently moved to the broward area and wanted great school to join. A good friend of mine told me about Vagner Rocha school in pembroke pines so i decided to check it out. Coming in as a purple belt, i could tell u technic is key. It’s now been 12 months since i joined. He has corrected a lot of small details in my game i would miss in key moments, an in BJJ that’s what determines submission an just surviving. VRMA has great structure, discipline, attendance, a family environment. Vagner R. and Ruben A. (BJJ) black belts leading the way. I would like to thank them and the rest of the team for receiving me with open arms.

The confidence your child or children will get will carry over to school and every day life.

My children and I have trained at the school for 8 yrs and it’s been an excellent experience. I myself am a 20 veteran Police officer in the city of Miami. Comprehensive classes for both adults and children and a great friendly staff. Vagner himself is a world champion with a wealth of experience in both competing and teaching Jiu-jitsu to anyone willing to come in and try it out. I myself have won several tournaments under his training and at the age of 45. The confidence your child or children will get will carry over to school and every day life. Both my children trained at the school and I had the privilege to see them progress into the adult classes with me.

Come to the school give it try it’s a great parent child bonding experience for both mom or dad, son or daughter.

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……

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.
