The Ararat Martial Arts and Fitness Center Plan: To Help You Achieve Your Goals.

Ararat Martial Arts and Fitness Center teaches traditional martial arts in a fun and safe environment.

The students in our programs experience a number of life-changing physical and mental benefits.

You will find yourself more focused and competitive in both your business life and personal life. You will perform better, feel better, and overall, be better. All you have to do is get started to start seeing the benefits! Stop doing the same mindless exercises at the gym and start working out with a purpose.

IN JUDO, SIZE DOESN’T MATTER

Judo remains an effective means of self-defense by relying on throwing and flipping a larger or more powerful adversary to the ground, then applying ground combat techniques to control an opponent once they are in a position of disadvantage.

Rather than relying on striking back, it allows the student to use his or her opponent’s strength against them, and subdue them without exerting undue—or unavailable—amounts of power and strength.

Judo is meant to be conservative with energy, meaning that it shouldn’t take all of one’s strength to pull off moves to stop an opponent. It’s also meant to transform the student into a person more likely to contribute to society by emphasizing discipline and increasing focus.

What Other Members Are Saying:

I've known coach Ghazar for a long time and had a unique opportunity and great privilege to learn the European style of judo from him. His uchi-mata is one of the best in the world. He is also teaching a legit class of newaza (groundwork) which enables judokas to complete with jiu-jitsu competitors. I'm planning to visit Ohio to meet him again! I believe practicing judo under his supervision is beneficial for those who want to get gold medals.

Sensei Ghazar is very outstanding and truly cares about his athletes. He is able to understand and help you with any life or sports problem you have. Always gives you extra work and repetitions that will make YOU better as an athlete. Sensei Ghazar has so much knowledge about Martial Arts especially JUDO. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone who would like to come and join our judo family..:)
