My Name is Roberto Torralbas and I am the Owner of Third Law Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu! Please read this letter to get details on the AMAZING FREE OFFER I am opening up to you and your child!
With the help of my staff, we will make sure that your child at my academy will:
My name is Roberto Torralbas and I’m a full time BJJ practitioner/competitor, school owner (Third Law BJJ Academy in Naples, FL), and Head Instructor/Head Coach. I was born in Havana, Cuba on December 19, of 1984.
I started doing Judo at the age of 6 when my father decided it would be a good sport for me to try. Funny thing was, I loved baseball at the time. Back then, I couldn’t understand why my father was so insistent that that I do Judo.
At first, I loved it. Running, jumping, climbing ropes, etc. … but there was a kid in the class could beat me at will at everything (running, jumping, sparring, etc…). I HATED LOSING. So I started making excuses not to go. I was nervous to go to class just because I didn’t want to lose. But my dad helped me face that fear by not letting me miss a single class. I didn’t grow up with my father because I left Cuba at the age of 9 and he stayed behind. But when I look at my experiences and memories to that age, I still remember this as the most valuable thing he ever did for me. Read my (full bio here).
Why is that? As a young adult, I returned to the mats and began training again in a different style that is very similar but at the same time very different: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Read my (full bio here, where I explain why I left Judo for BJJ).
I couldn’t believe it, but those experiences that I had as with Judo made me want to return to the mats and gave me an incredible passion for success. Then, one day I understood why my Dad wanted me to do Judo:
The educational system in Cuba was a bit rough. There were tough kids in those classrooms and he wanted me to learn ways to defend myself and not to be any bully’s victim.
What I don’t know, is if he realized that self-defense was just the beginning of what he had done for me.
From that experience, I learned valuable lessons that I still carry with me today: commitment, discipline, courage, confidence and persistence in overcoming obstacles. And that’s only the beginning.
The words “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu” are so misleading. Here is a common definition:
“Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ( BJJ ) is a predominantly ground-oriented martial art which was originally derived from traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and Judo. In the mid-1920’s, Carlos Gracie opened the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He taught the skills he learned from Japanese Judo master Esai Maeda. The skills were later modified to use less strength and to be more effective against larger opponents. In the past decade, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s popularity has spread due to its success in mixed martial arts contests and no holds barred contests. The art is heavily based around the development of numerous submission holds, but emphasis is also placed on gaining and maintaining advantageous positions. As a result is a very effective method of self-defense because it teaches the practitioner how to move and defend against attacks on the ground or standing. A Jiu-Jitsu student will learn to control his opponent without causing unnecessary harm or injuries”
Jiu-Jitu is a science that studies a system of bio mechanics that allow a weaker opponent to defeat much larger ones. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Being good at Jiu-Jitsu is not the primary benefit that practitioners get from it.
What is the primary benefit? If I could sum it all up in one sentence it would be: “The main benefit one person gets out of training Brazilian jiu jitsu is the mental training which results in mental strength.”
Mental strength: The ability to manage your emotions, perform at your best, and overcome any obstacle.
I truly believe that confidence, self-esteem, assertiveness, courage and other often-mentioned positive qualities are products of being mentally strong.
My program is a great opportunity for you, as a parent, to equip your child with the ability to overcome any obstacle life may throw at him or her.
While the rest of the world is trying to comfort your child (video games, friends, etc..), I will be CHALLENGING him or her in a carefully-designed curriculum. Think of me as the extra school teacher who cares the most about your kid, the one that wants to see your child succeed, go to college, and become a leader in whatever field he or she choose to pursue in life.

The 2-4 hours that kids spend after school before their parents get home are some of the most important hours in a child's life...
Most parents do everything they can to teach these things to their children but After School many parents need some help. The 2-4 hours that kids spend after school before their parents get home are some of the most important hours in a child's life.
How is your child spending their time After School?
"Previously a timid boy, he is now capable of exerting himself in other sports and activities, in very positive ways..."
I am very happy that we have enrolled our six year old son, Adam, into the Head Start in Life Jiu Jitsu program. Initially, I was very reluctant, worried that my son would become bored, as was the case with a previous martial arts program. To my surprise, Adam's committment to the class has been quite the opposite. He has enjoyed all aspects of the program and always looks forward to each class. Adam is always eager to get into the car to head over to class, and will stop anything that he is doing in order to do so - video games not excluded. Most suprisingly, his enthusiasm for the program was obvious when he chose to give up other popular activities, such as the Boy Scouts when scheduling conflicts arose.
Most importantly for me, as a parent, is the obvious growth that has occurred during these short 3 months.
The physical skills that he has acquired have clearly translated into a new self confidence. Previously a timid boy, he is now capable of exerting himself in other sports and activities, in very positive ways.
Lastly, although many martial arts schools claim to place an equal emphasis on respect and personal growth to self defense, I believe that the program at Head Start in Life takes those goals to a far higher level. A full ten minutes at the beginning of each class is dedicated toward promoting growth in areas of academics and character, as well as other areas that are not always associated with martial arts training. As such, one is just as likely to observe teaching in geography, multiplication tables, and etiquete as one would jiu-jitsu throws and pinning techniques.
In the end, I would recommend the program to all children.

Let's look at this example: The average child spends 3-4 hours somewhere after school before their parents come home. A child that goes from 1st to 7th grade spends about 200 days in school out of the year, This doesn’t even include the 8 hours a day for 2-3 months during the summer.
200 days times 3 hours is 600 hours a year a child spends doing what?
Some go to babysitters. Some go home and play with their friends doing whatever they want. A lot just sit in front of the television. Others get into serious trouble. Not our students.
Let's put this into perspective...Between the 1st and 7th grade a child spends an average of 4200 hours doing basically nothing productive. This time is more valuable than you know. In 4200 hours you could graduate from college, get your Masters Degree and your Ph.D. So why wouldn’t you let your child spend this valuable time learning skills that will last a lifetime?
When our kids get out of school, their parents know that their child is being trained in real Life Skills. With our busy 21st Century schedules, it's hard to find the time and resources to really help them with these important life skills.
You would think and expect that they would learn about perseverance, positive mental attitudes, self discipline and goal setting in school, but they really don't.
Students who attend the Third Law Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are a step up on others because we teach them about these important life skills and how to develop them to their fullest! Success traits that will pay off for the rest of their lives.
The website KidsHealth.com is an amazing resource for kids and parents. They did a small survey in which they asked 1,229 boys and girls to answer some questions about bullying. Nearly half of them said they had been bullied before. Some said it was happening every day. Others said it only happened once in a while. Here's how the group answered:
This is how the kids that had been bullied recall reacting:
Untreated or handled inappropriately, bullying can be a big problem that doesn't get better. And when no one does anything, the bullied kid can feel worse and worse, even to the point of being afraid to go to school. We will teach your child to handle bullies appropriately. How are we going to do that? I’ll give you a little clue: Jiu-Jitsu will be his last resort! Why? Easy:
Violence isn't a good way of solving problems, because both kids could get hurt. Also, fighting usually results in getting both kids in trouble, even if the bully started the whole thing. At the end of the day, the bully still gets the satisfaction of seeing the other kid get really upset.
There are many ways of beating bullying--the best of which is to avoid conflict and violence altogether, especially in this day and age. That's why it's so important to know how to Defeat Bullies Without Violence, but also to be able to defend yourself with force, of course only when it is absolutely necessary to do so. You will be able to rest assured that your child will have all the tools necessary to become a successful leader.
Here are some of the lessons we will go over with your child:
"Attending as a father/son combo has been an incredible bonding experience..."
My son Ethan (10 years old) and I both attend Third Law and absolutely love it. The conditioning is more challenging than any other martials arts program I have done before. Roberto is an excellent passionate instructor who really pours every thing he has into his students.
My favorite part is that at the end of the class we have matches with each other to apply our new techniques. It is a blast rolling around with people of different body sizes, strength, and skill. We are all there to help each other grow and you see it in each other. No egos here.
I recommend this class to all- and attending as a father/son combo has been an incredible bonding experience.

"My fear was that he is young so that he would lose interest. I was completely wrong. He has taken to learning from Roberto like a fish to water..."
My name is Wilson Rodriguez and my son Aiden is 5 years old.I have been training with Roberto for almost a year and the things he has taught me have greatly improved my health and my life.
Roberto told me about the kids program and as soon as my son turned five, I asked what he would like to do. His answer was Jiu-jitsu. I was very proud to know that he wanted to learn the same thing as me. I had originally thought of putting him in just soccer, but to be fair to him I wanted him to make the choice.
My fear was that he is young so that he would lose interest. I was completely wrong. He has taken to learning from Roberto like a fish to water. He thinks its so cool that my instructor, is also his instructor.
I had no idea how much this decision would affect my sons life as well as my life, in a positive way. My son and I have now formed a very close bond.
All these aspects will help him in life when he goes out into the world. Mostly what I love about the children’s classes is seeing the smile on my sons face when its his day to go to class.
Taking the classes as father and son has greatly improved our relationship with each other. Not many sports let you learn from the same coach/teacher. Seeing how Roberto takes the time to help the children with the drills and technique while still keeping it fun. As most parents know, kids learn a lot when they are having fun doing it! If I sacrifice just a little time, the payoff to my sons well being will definitely be worth it.
Our family has seen so many positives things come out it that our youngest son Sebastian will definitely be signed up when he turns 5. I would suggest anyone thinking of a sport for their child to come in and check it out. You will not be disappointed.
I've made it very easy for you to find out if our program is a good match for you and your child. Your child will receive 2 private lessons with one of our highly trained instructors and participate in a regular class. This will give you a chance to visit our school, meet our staff, and you can work with our instructors. This is your chance to interview us with NO OBLIGATION!

She enjoys the art of BJJ and she takes it seriously. She is looking forward to the future, her future in BJJ! It has been a wonderful transition thus far with a great sense of accomplishment! I’d have to say, she’s hooked!"
My name is Colleen and I was looking for a martial arts program or school of self defense primarily for my daughter with the notion in the back of my mind that perhaps I too could enroll and reap the physical benefits of getting in shape and perhaps learning a thing or two. I wanted a program for my daughter that was a true learning program, one that would prove to be challenging, utilizing problem solving skills, and strategizing, just like we use in life everyday!
My eleven year old daughter, Francesca, has really taken to Roberto’s BJJ Junior program at Third Law. She looks forward to going to her classes each week and learning new moves. She enjoys the art of BJJ and she takes it seriously. She is looking forward to the future, her future in BJJ! It has been a wonderful transition thus far with a great sense of accomplishment! I’d have to say, she’s hooked!
The benefits that I’ve gained since joining Third Law have far surpassed what I had imagined! First of all, I’m learning BJJ which is fantastic and really empowering! Good technique is based on leverage not strength, so for a small woman up against a larger man, this knowledge is priceless. In addition, it is a great work out because it keeps my mind engaged, it exercises just about every muscle in my body, it offers strength training by means of trying to push against another body, and it increases your flexibility, and you get cardio in every class. It sure beats going to the gym! I’ve gained strength, flexibility, and endurance. I’ve lost some weight and some inches, and it feels great! It’s all been fun and interesting and never dull and mundane.
Both Francesca and I are truly enjoying the program at Third Law BJJ. Roberto makes learning the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fun and interesting. He makes you want to strive for more and do your best. Third Law makes it fun! Roberto is very dedicated to his program and to each of his individual students! His dedication, professionalism and reflective determination have spread through his academy. His students likewise share in his sense of enthusiasm and are always so insightful and willing to help and assist so that you can be the best at your game.
