At Team Rodrigo Vaghi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Omaha North, Nebraska, our gym specializes in all aspects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (sport, self defense, and Vale Tudo/MMA). Instructor is a veteran police officer with competition experience on all levels. As the world learns and grows to appreciate this art form, it is our hope that Team Vaghi will be considered one of the premiere organizations for Jiu Jitsu students in the Midwest.
Our team members train hard day after day to physically and mentally prepare themselves for tournaments against competitors from all over the world. The discipline and dedication involved is intense and without the assistance from our sponsors and supporters, it would be difficult to maintain this grueling regimen. We would like to thank our family and friends who have supported us and have been patient throughout our training and competition schedules. Without their help, we would not be where we are today. They are a definitely a major part of Team Vaghi!
