#1 Danella Eliasov

Dr. Danella Eliasov is a specialist psychiatrist practising out of AKESO in Parktown Johannesburg.

She is also the first female signed to the EFC as well as being a brazilian Jiu Jitsu purple belt and 3 x South African Champion.

I visited her in her offices in Parktown and we discussed among other things: Woman’s MMA, Anxiety and aliveness sports, BJJ, Depression, her recent trip to Iran, woman’s self defense, and I guessed at an interesting development regarding her upcoming EFC fight in 2018.
