Just like her daughter Ronda, AnnMaria De Mars never holds back from speaking her mind. In an interview with LatiNation she expressed her feelings about Ronda’s head coach Edmond Tarverdyan.
“I think Edmond is a terrible coach and I will say it publicly,” DeMars said. “I think he’s a terrible coach. I think he hit the lottery when Ronda walked in there. She was winning before she ever met him. She probably won 99 percent of the judo matches she ever fought in.”
She talks about Ronda’s accomplishments in The Olympics and that it took Edmond months to even give Ronda the time of day, “Somebody like that is a terrible coach” she said.
She has told Ronda that she will no longer keep her feelings about Edmond quiet. AnnMaria then went on to say, “He’s a bad person and people should not go there. And if he wants to sue me, that’s my honest opinion.”
