  • yellow-triangle Great Workout! Warm Up, Technique Practice and Training with Resistance: All tailored to each woman, depending on their experience-level and fitness level.

But What If I’m Not The “Fighting Type”?

Let me tell you a story about a girl who gave up on athletics in 5th grade when she went an entire softball season without hitting a single ball at bat… but then became a Blue Belt Pan American Champion in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at 29 years old.

That’s me, I’m Coach Katy, and at the time I’m writing this I am 32 years old and my daughter Rosa Maria is about to turn 2 years old.

That’s me, I’m Coach Katy, and at the time I’m writing this I am 32 years old and my daughter Rosa Maria is about to turn 2 years old.

I am a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I have been training for more than six years.

I want to share my story with you because you might have some of the same fears I had about trying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Like:

  • yellow-triangle Will it be too hard?
  • yellow-triangle Will I get hurt?
  • yellow-triangle Will I ever be good at it?
  • yellow-triangle What if I just can’t do it?

I totally understand those fears, because I had all of them, too. My husband, Roberto Torralbas, was a purple belt when we met, and while I thought BJJ was a wonderful thing for him to practice, I couldn’t imagine myself ever trying it.

I had failed at athletics as a child, and had never gotten over it. I had convinced myself that I would be incapable of being good at any sport, let alone one that looked as challenging as jiu jitsu.

“But through my twenties, I found myself struggling more and more each year with my weight.”

I had been about 150 pounds in high school, and maybe 165 when I graduated from college.

But each year a few more pounds crept on, despite my attempts to eat healthy and exercise, and one day I found myself weighing almost 190 pounds. I freaked out. I tried the gym, running on the treadmill, doing CrossFit workouts, bootcamp classes, spinning classes, nothing was working.

Then one day I went to a jiu jitsu competition with Roberto, where some of the women from Team Third Law happened to be competing. I had gone to competitions before, but I had never paid much attention to the women’s divisions.

This time I did, and I saw women of all types: younger and older than me, smaller and bigger than me, in good shape and fairly out of shape. And I looked at them, and I asked Roberto:

“Well, if they can do it, couldn’t I do it, too?”

“Yes, of course!,” he replied.

“I was so nervous to try out my first class, I’ll never forget it.”

I went to the Women-Only class on Saturday at 10:30 am (now I teach that class!), and even though it was my fiance’s school, I was petrified.

But the women were so nice and helpful, walking me through each step of the technique over and over again, and it was so much fun… I had a blast. And I went back the next week, and the week after that.

Fast forward about 6 months and I was doing classes about 3 times per week and I had already lost 20 pounds. Eight months in, I was down 30 pounds. One year in and I had lost about 60 pounds, all without any extreme dieting.

And, I was absolutely in love with training jiu jitsu. See the thing about this sport, is that it is so much fun to practice that you forget about the fact that you are even working out. It’s a mental game of strategy, played with the body.

So while your mind is focusing on learning a new technique, you are working every muscle in your body without even thinking about it. And all of sudden you look up at the clock and 2 hours have gone by and you’ve burned 1000 calories.

“Everything in our classes is a gradual process…”

…so wherever you are in your fitness and athletic level, we will meet you there, and help you improve.

Jiu Jitsu changed my life because it gave me control over my health and also taught me that I was capable of so much more than I’d ever dreamed. That is what I want for you.

When Roberto and I were ready to start a family I have to admit, I was a little afraid again. I was afraid of the weight gain that was associated with pregnancy, and also of returning to a competitive sport after taking a year off.

On the night I gave birth to our little girl I weighed more than 200 pounds.

On the night I gave birth to our little girl I weighed more than 200 pounds.

Nine months later I was back down to 145 pounds, all thanks to training jiu jitsu.

And while returning to competition after pregnancy was probably one of the most mentally challenging things I have done, it also has been one of the most rewarding. I am so glad that I didn’t give up in the moments when it was difficult.

Now, nearly two years after Rosa was born, I am winning international tournaments at purple belt in the 18-29 year olds division, even though I’m 32 years old.

When we talk about motivation and choices we make as humans in this life, we talk about our “Why,” meaning:

“What is it that drives us to do the things we do?”

For me, when that little girl was born nearly two years ago, my “Why” changed in a big way. I know any of you who are reading this who are moms understand what I mean when I say that. Suddenly, it wasn’t all about me anymore, it was really not about me at all any more. Everything suddenly became all about her.

So now, as a mom, I challenge myself every day even more, because I want to show her just how amazing the human body and the human mind can be. I want to show her what amazing things humans, and especially women, are capable of.

I want her to know that it is possible to work hard, have a wonderful, happy family and at the same time pursue out-of-this-world-sized dreams. I know that if I tell her she is capable of great things, she might not really hear me.

But if I show her, through my own actions, maybe, just maybe, it’ll be a lesson she will internalize.

And if I hadn’t taken that risk years ago, and tried out this crazy sport, I don’t know if I’d ever had learned that lesson, or felt that limitless potential in myself.

“So if you are considering trying out our class, but you’re nervous or scared, please, just give me a call.”

I’ve been there. If you think you’re too old, or too out of shape, or too inexperienced, I’ve been there, I know how you feel.

I’d love to talk to you about how we can help you gain the benefits you’re hoping to from training.

Trying this sport has truly changed my life, and I know it can do the same for you. Whatever your path, whatever your fears, whatever your goals, let’s talk about them.

Call me today! I always answer our phone, and if by some chance you get our voicemail, it’ll be me who will call you back. I can’t wait to start training with you!

I was in town for a couple of days and absolutely needed a place to train. Team Third Law opened their doors and as soon as warm ups started Coach Joey made me feel like part of the family. I have trained all over the country and I can say that the techniques thought at Third Law is some of the best. I was very impressed by how well the coaches can break down the moves so that everyone at all levels of the sport can pick them up no problem. Next time i'm back in area i'll definitely be stopping by.read more

My son Cory has attended Third Law for 6 years now. Starting as a little ninja and is now on the kids competition team. He was in the after school program. He went to summer camp many times. He has made many great friends and has been mentored by all of the awesome instructors! They are great people! Every facet of training in Jiu Jitsu and mentoring in life lessons has made a huge and positive impact on him. As a single mother I can’t stress how grateful i am for their presence and genuine interest in how my son grows and develops into manhood. Team Third Law absolutely rocks!!!!! M Cannanread more

As I'm from another country I really felt welcome. I was helped by Cathy and I got everything I needed to know so I could properly start. Didn't even bring a Gi with me but it was no hassle whatsoever.The class was a good combination of well rounded people and some new guys. As I'm a white belt myself I didn't feel uncomfortable at any point. Lot of mutual respect between the students. Our coaches and professor demonstrated a lot of knowledge and were able to make us combine a lot of techniques. At the end we mastered a couple of new moves and practiced some varieties on them. Very nice group, amazing atmosphere and super nice facilities. Would definitely recommend it!read more

Coach Katy, Coach Joey, and Coach Noah all made the tiny ninjas program fun, and kept our son Eli excited for each and every class. They always kept the classes engaging, fresh, and positive for the kids. Our son loved the new theme of the month (like teamwork, family, or manners to name a few) to work on and strive for new stripes on his belt and he made lots of new friends in the process.read more

Joining Team Third Law was the best decision I have made since moving to Naples. It is exactly what I was looking for in a martial arts school. On top of having a great adults program, the kids programming is exceptional as well. If I had kids they would be in this program as soon as they were old enough. I refer friends to the kids program for their children. I would refer Team Third Law to anyone who's looking to compete, to someone just looking to learn some self defense skills. It has an element for everyone, without the intimidation factor that you find at other facilities. This is a warm, but hardworking environment .read more

I visited the gym while visiting Naples to book some private lessons with coach Joey. I was not only impressed with my training with coach Joey but also with their group classes. I was welcomed as soon as I walked in the gym, the atmosphere was outstanding, felt like I have been training there for years; the way Master Roberto lays out the lesson plan and teaches is amazing. This is a family oriented gym and that I was why I also decided to bring my kids for privates which they loved! Well done Team Third Law, will be back as soon as I return to Naples!read more

My son and I were visiting from out of town over the holidays and needed a place for him to train since he's a varsity high school wrestler in California. Katy and Joey were super friendly and very accommodating, letting us work out for a few days. The facilities were great - exactly what we needed as wrestlers to help us get in a good work out. Perfect temperature in the room where we trained, making for a nice soft mat, and they had plenty of other great amenities. Thanks guys!!read more

I was in town for a few days and was able to drop in for a night. The school was large and well lit, with a lot of mat space. The instructor was extremely welcoming as was the team, and I felt included in everything. I was having some trouble with the finer details of some of the technique, as my home gym uses a much different guard-passing system, and a brown belt helping with the class took the time come over and point out where I was going wrong. At the end of class I got to roll with a blue belt (same as me) and he was extremely tough with an awesome bottom half guard, which I could not pass to save my life. The instructors invited me back the next day, but I could not due to time constraints. Overall, I was very impressed, and had a great time training at third law.read more

Third Law is a great place to train in Naples. I had the pleasure of visiting while on vacation. Coach Kathy started with the grand tour of this sprawling facility with three separate mat areas. Roberto Torralbas teaches a very detailed beginners class followed by rolling and advanced (which could have gone to 1am and most often does). I had a blast rolling with both Coaches Joey and Joe. They pushed the pace to make sure I stayed on track for my upcoming Fight to Win match. I'll be back soon.read more

So jealous of guys and gals that get to call this place home. I stopped in with my girlfriend while traveling to train BJJ and they couldn't possibly have been more hospitable. The facility itself is very clean with tons of mat space but the most impressive part was the level of instruction from both Roberto and Joe. I have trained at a lot of different gyms while on the road and this is one I will make an effort to return to. Rolling with Roberto and Joe made me feel like a white belt again, in the best possible way. There is no better training this side of Florida, and so close to the beach too!read more

I will never forget the day that Mario and I found out about team third law and we had our first orientation. I thought we were just going to watch a video and just fill some papers . boy was I wrong ! From the very first day we were introduced to the mats and some starter techniques and of course I was freaking out. We always went to the gym and worked out before but this sport just seemed scary but we gave it a try . Let me tell you these are the friendliest down to earth people I have ever met and they made us feel just at home . If you have never done any sports before don't worry they will have patience with you because I know coach Katy and Master Roberto have had more than enough patience with me and you will never feel pressured or embarrassed . I can honestly say team third law blessed us and opened the door to many opportunities and great friends.read more
