No Holds Barred: Tami Carswell on G3 Summit and Women's Fighter Conference, and Women in Combat Sports
She is involved in organizing the G3 Summit and Women's Fighter Conference.
This event will be held July 28 through August 5 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The G3 Summit and Women's Fighter Conference, according to its web site, "brings the best coaches, instructors, and personalities from the women's boxing, grappling, wrestling, and MMA all in one place." The event "will consist of seminars, fighter clinics, and competitions - including kickboxing, grappling, and MMA."
We spoke with Tami Carswell by phone Friday afternoon about the G3 Summit and Women's Fighter Conference. We also had a lengthy, informative, and pointed discussion about the position of women in combat sports, the continued obstacles and double standards they face, and the role of sexism and stigmas against women fighters and athletes in limiting or denying them opportunities to compete.
In this epic interview, Tami Carswell destroyed many of the myths about women in combat sports. While the talent pool may not now be as deep for women fighters as it is for men, she countered, "Why wouldn't you want to develop that? That's where the cop-out is." And she emphasized, "The world should be able to see the best of the male fighters and the best of the female fighters in the UFC or anything on that level."
