Professor Eliot Marshall and I sat down to talk about life, jiu-jitsu, and parenting on the Aspire Higher Podcast. After a spiritual awakening in his life, Eliot needed to make a change in his life for the sake of his family and his health. In spite of a lifetime of physical achievements and success, he was experiencing major anxiety and sleepless nights.
A truly unique quality of Eliot’s is that he is equally adept fighting in the octagon, teaching a class of adults, or effortlessly commanding the attention of a packed room of five-year-old students! He describes his teaching style as being very basic. Though many instructors like to teach elaborate moves, and base their classes around whatever new technique they are practicing, Eliot prefers to stick to the fundamentals. He believes that however effective a particular move might be, solid fundamentals are what make a person a skilled martial artist. To try a free class, visit their website at www.eastonbjj.com
As a result, Eliot Marshall is driven to lead his community to achieve everything they've ever wanted through martial arts, jiu-jitsu and muay-thai kickboxing. His personal mission and message is present in every class he teaches at the Easton Academy in Denver, CO and I am grateful that he took the time to speak to me about mental health and martial arts.
