Interesting.
If you can do that, it sounds great.
The first name that came to my mind was Chute Boxe Academy, in Curitiba, Brazil. You know, the Academy that gave the world Wanderlei Silva or the Rua brothers.
I think it would be the first i would like to visit if i'd had the time and money to finance such an expedition.
Also, Greg Jackson MMA, Extreme Couture, AKA, ATT...but i don't know how it it with this camps. Do they acept novices?!

I would like to do something like this: travel and go to specific camps like Marcelo Garcia's gym, to learn ome BJJ, study some boxing at Freddie Roach's gym and some wrestling at a very ood wrestling camp (can't think of one...sorry). But i don't have the necessary finances atm. maybe in the future.:)

I hope you find what you are looking for.
Best of luck to you in your quest.

Greg Jackson's in Alberquerque, NM- Jon Jones, Jardine, GSP.

Tristar Gym in Montreal, Canada- GSP.

Grudge Training center is getting a lot of hype these days. It's in Denver, Colorado. - Marquardt, Evans, Carwin.

Extreme Couture in Las Vegas, Nevada.- Couture, Forrest Griffin, Stephan Bonnar.

Black House certainly is one of the best gyms in the world (They are located in both Brazil and LA) and they have some of the worlds greatest there...

A. Silva, The Nogs, Jose Aldo, JDS, Lyoto Machida and many more...

Sadly it's invite only :P

Invite only? Well that really sucks. Especially considering I would like to know how to get a blackbelt in Machida Karate!:(

Well I think I heard it somewhere - not really sure :)

So it could be worth investigating if someone was truly interested ;)

Being a BB in Machida Karate would be awesome :P

I'm sure his father teaches it, and chances are there are other Machida Karate black belts around that would be able to teach it as well.

I believe the Machida's have their own training camp.
However, it is true that Machida trains with Black House.

Machida has a dojo but not his own fighting team. I think he does better when he trains with Black House for sure. Those guys are all pretty close if they refuse to face each other!:thumbsup:
