BodyKore makes frequent visits to Black House MMA Gym, but this time we were in for a real treat. BodyKore was invited to another special training session to watch some of the Top fighters in UFC/MMA training during a normal routine daily work out. The who's who of MMA was present at the private work out from UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida, UFC fighters Mark Munoz, Mario Miranda, Strikeforce fighter Shane del Rosario, BJ Penn's Trainer Kenny Johnson, and the rest of the Black House Training team just to name a few.
The fighters started with a wresting session from Kenny Johnson and Mark Munoz. The session was packed with special take down techniques, counter moves and shoots.

After the wresting sessions, it was time for Team Black House members to lace up the gloves and gear up for some contact sparring. There were many sparring rounds that took place with Anderson Silva sparring Lyoto Machida, Mark Munoz, Shane del Rosario and many other Black House fighters. Please view the pictures below!
