    GP wanted to Feature this Young brother and sister duo. They have been doing really well in JiuJitsu. What is awesome about them is their great attitude and respect for everyone on and off the mats. They are a positive image to the sport. Here is a little more about them:

    “Our Names are Tammi ( Black Belt) and Michael Musumeci (Purple Belt).

    We train in Florida under Emyr “Shark” Bussade at American Top Team Wellington and also with Manoel Soares and Gilbert “Durinho” Burns at Jaco.

    We love BJJ because it is more than a sport; it is a way of life! Our dad was the first to start training and we followed along.”

    Michael started when he was 4 and Tammi started when she was 6 years old, so they have been training for about 13 years.

    “Our goal in Jiu Jitsu is to be the first brother and sister to win black belt worlds together.”

    We 1555685_10202527893055946_711263455_nwould tell anyone new starting Jiu Jitsu that Jiu Jitsu is a sport where anyone can be a champion no matter what size, body type, etc. The biggest thing in Jiu Jitsu is the hard work and dedication you put into it.

     

    We would like to thank our sponsors Bull Terrier and Shoyoroll for all of their support and all of our teammates who push us every day.

    Thank you Grapplersplanet for the interview.
