The operation of those incomprehensible Oriental martial arts federations disturbs us. This is what Acting First Deputy Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Gabriel Ghazaryan declared during the March 25 special session of the government.
He stated that there are nearly 250 such federations operating in Armenia. “They actually don’t have the right to implement educational and athletic activities because, first of all, the representatives lack education. This is also a matter of our children’s health. We are fighting against these federations, and I’m certain that the issue will be solved more easily and quickly with the Ministry of Education and Science,” he said.
