UFC LEGEND KARO PARISYAN – NEW HBJJ INSTRUCTOR
HBJJ welcomes UFC legend Karo Parisyan to our school. He will be teaching NO GI on Tuesdays and Fridays evenings.
Parisyan was born in Yerevan, Armenia. His family migrated to America when he was six years old. Parisyan started training in Judo when he was nine years old under fellow Armenian Gokor Chivichyan and Gene LeBell.
About Karo Parisyan The “Heat”
For more than thirteen years, Parisyan developed under the Hayastan Grappling System, a style developed by Gokor Chivichyan and Gene LeBell, which blends elements of Judo, Sambo, Catch Wrestling, Greco-Roman and Freestyle wrestling. Parisyan continued to train at the Hayastan Academy under Gokor and Gene until late 2005. In early 2012.
Parisyan has six Junior National belts to his credit and competed in the Olympic Judo trials ahead of the 2004 games in Athens. He competes as a welterweight and made his UFC debut on September 23, 2003, beating Dave Strasser by Kimura. In his next fight, Parisyan fought Georges St-Pierre and lost via unanimous decision. Karo became the first fighter to go the distance with St-Pierre. He then went on to win the WEC welterweight title, defeating Shonie Carter. He then returned to the UFC, where he won consecutive decision victories over Nick Diaz, Chris Lytle and Matt Serra.
Mr. Parisyan is a 4 time International Judo champion widely credited as being the first to successfully adapt judo techniques for mixed martial arts. Karo’s throws are and his ground and pound style is brutal, allowing him to be a favorite mainstay of the UFC for five years running and still going strong. Karo is continually developing and improving his game as he sits atop the crowded elite of the UFC welterweight division.

After years in security, the call back to the purity of sport led him to teach and work with upcoming competitors as well as non competitor hobbyists.

He currently works with two competition teams who have fought for such organizations as Defiant (both muay Thai and mma), Cali Muay Thai/Dennis Warner, Spar Star, M-One, IFS, OC Muay Thai, UofMMA, and Bellator.
