Ann Marie DeMars

America’s first world champion in judo, Ann Marie DeMars also holds the title of being the author of the most informative and entertaining blog on judo on the internet.

A post of hers I particularly like is one on how not to get in the way as an instructor.

She is also Ronda Rousey‘s mom, who in my personal opinion, is the most exciting female judoka to watch. Ronda’s loss to Edith Bosch in 2008 Olympics frustrates me to this day, but I need about 5 posts to describe how I feel about the defensive, yuko-hunting judo that Bosch is so effective with, so I’ll leave that for another day.

Anyway, check out Ann Marie DeMars blog. We don’t have too many judo “personalities” in the United States that help promote the sport, and she is definitely a prominent example.
