Episode 08 – Mikey Musumeci

September 19, 2019

Rob and Dave interview 3-time IBJJF Black Belt World Champion and all around class act Mikey Musumeci.

At only 23 years old, he has already reached what many believe to be the pinnacle of the sport – yet he is as humble as can be and wise beyond his years. Perhaps it’s because he has been training Jiu Jitsu since 4 years old.

Mikey gives insights into his training methodology, how he deals with stress, his outlook into the future of BJJ, and much more.

Welcome to the Breaking the Guard Podcast!

This is David Avellan, and I’m excited to welcome you to this new venture that myself and Robert Drysdale will be introducing to the martial arts world.

Our goal with this podcast is to talk about issues that are often ignored in the media. Whether it is because they are too worried about covering the latest scandal, or worried about offending their readers, that is not something we are concerned with here.

It is our intention to focus on real issues in the martial arts community, and dig deep to bring out as much information as possible. Most of these will be mental and philosophical in nature, as those are most commonly ignored or put aside.

Although we aren’t professional psychologists or philosophers, we both have read up quite a bit, and as instructors have done our due diligence on our topics of discussion. We will bring in special guests regularly to help bring in more view points and share their experiences with us.

If that sounds like a good time, then you are in for a treat! And if you haven’t already, make sure to subscribe to our email newsletter and our YouTube channel below:
