Mikey Musumeci Celebrates 27th Birthday: “Lots Of Ups & Downs”

Mikey Musumeci, one of the top-ranking BJJ athletes in the world, has celebrated his 27th birthday several days ago!

Mikey had a turbulent last year, full of ups and downs.
But he remains grateful for it all:

The year of 26 for me might have been the most growth year in my life.
Lots of ups and downs, but I am so grateful for everything!

I made a choice to live my life through my heart and to the fullest accepting the pain that comes with this lifestyle.
There’s so much to learn and to improve on as a person and in life, but I know I’m on the right track.

Life is a blessing and I’m so excited to see what happens at 27!

Mikey has battled depression for much of his life. And Jiu-Jitsu helped him deal with it:

I moved a lot as a kid and lived in, like, 11 different homes. So, it was definitely hard making friends when you move so much.
I pretty much battled depression my whole life also, so those are pretty much the hardships I’ve dealt with – and Jiu-Jitsu helped me so much to overcome those things.

I’ve always just felt a little different than the other kids I was around, you know? So I always just wanted to fit in and feel normal. So, it definitely was hard for me growing up feeling that.

That, I guess, helped me with Jiu-Jitsu because it made me just work harder. And I was able to enjoy Jiu-Jitsu, so that helped me through my depression.
