To accompany the capsule collection, Roots of Fight will release a mini-documentary that explores the core concepts of the art of jiu-jitsu through a visual re-telling of how Penn used his natural talent and aptitude to become the first American (in fact, the first non-Brazilian) to win a gold medal in the black belt division of the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

The mini-documentary includes never before seen footage from Penn’s championship run through the Mundials in 2000 and testimony from some of jiu-jistu and MMA’s top stars including UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie, current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, legendary martial artist Bas Rutten, four-time jiu-jitsu world champion Rafa Mendes, and others including “The Prodigy” himself.
