Black House Tribute Video by Roots of Fight

June 8, 2012

Roots of Fight is proud to announce its latest video tribute and clothing collection in collaboration with the legendary fight team/gym, Black House.

Originally founded in Rio De Janeiro in 2006, Black House was moved to Los Angeles in 2008 to serve as a training facility for living legends such as reigning UFC middleweight champion Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva, former PRIDE and UFC heavyweight Antonio ‘Minotauro’ Nogueira, and former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto ‘The Dragon’ Machida as well as rising prospects in the world of MMA. Every man who crosses the threshold is either under the management of co-founder Ed Soares or invited by a member of the Black House fight team.

The gym serves as a training haven for pro fighters to ply their trade without the distractions of the media, fans or the every day bustle of a working gym. Taking the mat for a training session at Black House marks you a member of an elite brotherhood of fighters.

“Black House has a very different type of energy because it’s not a training facility that’s open to the public,” says Soares. “You have to be invited, you’re a guest of Black House which makes it very unique.”

The Black House X Roots of Fight series showcases the iconic Black House logo designed by renowned illustrator/designer Sheppard Fairey, and marks a distinct change in direction for Roots of Fight.

In a nod to that sense of exclusivity, Roots of Fight announces the release of the limited edition Black House “Insignia’ T-shirt and sweatshirt. The first pieces of apparel in collaboration with Black House, the Insignia T-shirt is made from an ultra-soft, vintage washed cotton. The sweatshirt is a light-weight, raglan crew neck and they will only be available in limited quantity through the Roots of Fight on-line shop. Roots of Fight will be collaborating with Black House with more special and limited edition apparel over the coming months.
