Mikey Musumeci

Mikey Musumeci

The Musumeci's have been mainstays on the competitive scene for a very long time.  Mikey started his BJJ journey at age 4 and represented a number of academies before making a connection to the Mendes Brothers who happened to visit his home academy in Florida to teach some seminars.  This relationship continued for a long time with the Musumeci's traveling and taking private lessons whenever they were able.
In 2016, the two Musumeci's made the decision to make a change and join Caio Terra's association.  The news was a bit of a shock to the jiu jitsu world, but the change to the 10 time world champion's camp has continued to serve Mikey well with his 2nd world title.
