One of the best things about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that you can go almost anywhere in the world, to any country…
And that, even though you don’t know anyone there, you’d still feel at home – as soon as you hit the mats.
Mikey Musumeci knows that well. He’s traveled, trained, and competed all around the globe.
So, he’s very well acquainted with the “universal language” of Jiu-Jitsu.
Musumeci shared his thoughts in a recent interview with ONE Championship:
Jiu-Jitsu is like a universal language.
And I think that that’s what’s so special about it now that I’ve traveled all around the world, like the Middle East, Asia everywhere, like South America, America, it doesn’t matter where they go, the people could be speaking different languages. The people could be different religions, different cultures…
You go in and you do Jiu-Jitsu the same with everyone.
So it connects everyone in the world together.
Jiu-Jitsu made things easier for Musumeci when he was a kid as well, because he used to move a lot:
Me as a kid moving around a lot, it definitely made me more comfortable.
Because maybe it was a new place, maybe it was a new state, maybe it was a new group of people I never knew…
But the second you started training with them, you instantly feel at home.
Everyone’s connected with Jiu-Jitsu.
