Left to Right: Greg Ambaryan, Gokor Chivichyan, Jovany Varela, Karen Darabedyan
Sensei Greg, 'Lil Gokor', Ambaryan is a Hayastan Black Belt under the Notorious Master Gokor Chivichyan. Not only is he active on the Professional Grappling Scene, he is also the current 180lbs Champion for Sparta Combat League in Las Vegas Nevada. More impressive than his resume, this kid is only in his mid 20's.
Okay, resume aside, let's talk Pedigree. Master of Sambo, Black Belt under the Hayastan MMA System under Master Gokor (the creator), and calls guys like Harout Terzyan, Karen Darabedyan, Manny Gamburyan, and all of those other monsters out of the Hayastan camp Coach. While he is not from that generation of fighters, as a kid, he use to just hang out and train with all of the adults. What he lacked in strength, he made up for with tenacity and skill.
His style is interesting to me because his philosophy emphasizes usability. Sensei Greg has solid Judo, and excellent wrestling. He is truly a Submission Artist. He has also trained striking with top level strikers like Benny 'The Jet' Urquidez, and a whole other slew of boxers and brawlers that were in and out of Hayastan Glendale back in the early 2000s.
