The Chewjitsu Podcast

Jun 7, 2021

Eliot Marshall is a Jiu-Jitsu black belt and former Mixed Martial Artist. Eliot is also a business owner, podcaster, and author. 

He was the first American to win the BJJ Pan American Championship at blue, purple, and brown belt. After transitioning to MMA, Eliot fought on The Ultimate Fighter, earned a UFC contract, and fought for 4 more years. Upon retirement he became the co-owner of Easton Training Center.

On this episode, Eliot shares his story of being bullied and having his home constantly vandalized which forced him to seek safety. Eliot found that safety through the ability to defend himself with Jiu-Jitsu and martial arts. Eliot discusses the value of helping others, the importance of your training partners to grow your BJJ skills, the major improvements and changes he has seen in BJJ, how to improve your weaknesses in Jiu-Jitsu, why you should "go on a diet with your Jiu-Jitsu techniques," why fear is an illusion, his experience on The Ultimate Fighter Season 8, why he felt that he was fighting in MMA for the wrong reasons, how having an intense battle with anxiety in 2016 changed his life, and the importance of maintaining balance in life.
