Ep. 9 – Parenting Competitive Athletes – Dr. AnnMaria De Mars
In this episode our guest is Dr. AnnMaria De Mars, Judo champion, educational game producer, and mother of four daughters including MMA fighter Ronda Rousey.
We asked Dr. De Mars and Dr. Ferguson to discuss their experiences navigating the challenges they face parenting competitive athletes. Both have achieved success in judo competition on the global scale, and both are parenting children who participate in the same sport.
Additionally, Dr. De Mars (Rousey) has a total of 4 daughters and 4 degrees. We discuss balancing education with athletics, the hazards of competing on the world scale, her most recent endeavors (7 Generations Gaming) and more.
This is a great resource for parents of athletic hopefuls for any sport.
