Ethan Crelinsten is a Canadian professional submission grappler and a student of both John Danaher and Firas Zahabi in jiu-jitsu, representing the New York based Renzo Gracie Academy and Montreal’s TriStar Gym in the sport’s international tour. Ethan gained notoriety particularly in jiu-jitsu’s no-gi circuit after his wins at the North American ADCC Trials (2018, 2019), and for his many wins over established pro-athletes while Crelinsten himself was still a colored belt. His long list of accolades earned him a profile on BJJ Heroes before being promoted to black belt, the first athlete to do so on the site.

Ethan Crelinsten Biography

Ethan Crelinsten was born on May 14, 1994, in Montreal, Canada, where he spent his formative years.

A late bloomer to sports, Crelinsten was not a sporty child growing up, with his first contact with a competitive activity coming at the age of 19, through mixed martial arts (MMA), a decision taken by the influence of the growing popularity cage fighting experienced in Canada at the time.

During his first experience at a small, local gym, Ethan’s training was solely focused on striking and wrestling, and it was only when he made the move to the larger TriStar gym, that Crelinsten added jiu-jitsu to his weekly activities, under the gym’s leader – Firas Zahabi.

With time, Ethan started enjoying jiu-jitsu more than he did MMA, a sentiment that led him to switch gears and focus all his efforts solely on submission grappling.

The link with the Renzo Gracie Academy and John Danaher’s workgroup came by way of Tom Breese, a TriStar fighter who brought in one of Danaher’s star pupils, Gordon Ryan, to TriStar for a fight-camp. The superior technical ability of Ryan led Ethan to the source, in New York. With Crelinsten’s continuous success on the mats, the Canadian quickly became part of the Danaher Death Squad elite group of grapplers, although all belts – from white to brown, were awarded by Zahabi, who continued to tutor Ethan in partnership with Danaher.

In November 2020, Ethan was awarded his black belt from coach John Danaher. On the same day as teammate Nicky Ryan.
