Team Black House is one of the most recognized fight camps in the sport today and represents some of the most impressive talent to come out of Brazil.
Vancouver-based clothing company Roots of Fight have worked with the camp to produce another mini-documentary in their series.
The latest episode features some of the camp's top fighters and manager Ed Soares, who recalls how the camp was created and how it remains one of the most successful gyms today.
Soares describes the gym as a private facility and it is unlike most traditional camps today, as the fighters who join the Brazilian-based camp are a part of a selective group of fighters. The camp consists of some of the successful fighters competing in mixed martial arts today, including Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo, Lyoto Machida and Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira.
“Black House has a very different type of energy because it’s not a training facility that’s open to the public,” Soares said. “You have to be invited, you’re a guest of Black House which makes it very unique.”
Soares adds that the camp has an exclusive feel to it and it allows the fighters to come and train and practice their skills, without being bombarded by the media or having to go through interviews on a regular basis.
Roots of Fight latest collaboration with Team Black House is only the second release in the series and is available exclusively on their website.
