Armenian Athletic Association (Homenmen) members, the Gharibian brothers, earned Gold Medals in all of the 2010 taekwondo competitions that they participated in. Sarkis and Nareg Gharibian competed in three tournaments: Golden State Open Taekwondo Championship on March 27, 2010, the 27th Camarillo Mayor’s Cup Championship on August 7, 2010, and the Jimmi Kim Invitational Taekwondo Championship on October 2, 2010. The youngest brother, Nareg won by a technical knockout at the Golden State, while elder Gharibian; Sarkis won by a knockout at the Mayor’s cup.

All of the fights were in the Red belt division 18-32 years old. Nareg fought middle weight and Sarkis fought heavy weight. While the brothers are avid taekwondo competitors, they both continue to excel in their academic studies along with devoting their time to public service with Southern California’s Armenian American community. Next year the Gharibian brothers will be fighting in the black belt divisions of their respective weight class.
