Students Travel Miles To Win Gold

This past weekend, on November 13th & 14th,  besides the belt promotion at the school, there were a couple of competitions going on in different states. On Saturday, we had a Newbreed  in Port St Lucie, Florida. Same day the IBJJF Kids International, taking place in Long Beach, California; and NAGA Championship in Dallas, Texas.

What all 3 students have in common?

They have been training and learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Vagner Rocha Martial Arts for almost 2 years now. They all train at least 3 times a week. They are dedicated and they believe they can accomplish anything if they work hard. Congratulations and let's keep moving forward!!!

Vagner Rocha Martial Arts has classes specifically designed for children and teens from 4-15 years old. Our martial arts classes are separated by age and experience. Classes include traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and realistic self-defense techniques that teach stand up and ground techniques, submissions, reversals, restraint and escapes.

At the Vagner Rocha Martial Arts Academy we teach BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU.  It is the safest and most relevant training your child can receive.   All children are welcomed and are encouraged to come train at our school regardless of  their current strengths and abilities.  We pride ourselves in building Self-Confidence, Physical Fitness and Self-Discipline in every child in a rewarding and caring environment.  This is why most of our kids continue training into adulthood.

We invite you to bring your child to a free trial class or just to come and watch.  While there, we ask that you speak to the other parents and get their opinions.
