Hello, My name is Kimberly Anderson. I own and operate theTransported After School Martial Arts Program and Martial Arts Summer Camp which is the only one of it's kind here in the Moorpark Area. Both myself and my husband Master Dan J. Anderson have been residents of Moorpark for over 20 years. Being full time working parents both of us realized the importance for after school programs for raising our daughter. Like many other parents in the Moorpark area we found only one program available through the Moorpark Unified School District. We had some problems with aspects of this program such as: supervision, maturity, organization and structure. When I joined the Martial Arts Industry with my husband we dedicated ourselves to creating an alternative resource of education for the children in our area. The unique code of conduct, character building and disciplined environment provided by the Martial Arts is far and away the best after school program available for children today. The biggest problem with a program like this was the ability to get the children to the facility as both parents work. Our program Transports the children right from school and delivers them safely to our gorgeous 8,000 square foot training center (the largest of it's kind), all you need to do is pick them up when your ready. We look forward to meeting with you and your children and are dedicated to the quest of being the best choice for alternative resource education in After School Programs in the Moorpark area.

What is the AMP? Transported After school Martial Arts Program, a constructive alternative to day care. During the school year, American Hapkido transports students from the elementary schools to our martial arts school. The students enjoy a martial arts class every day, as well as some fun physical activities and character-building quiet activities, and then the parents pick up their children between 5:00 and 6:30 p.m. We consider ourselves part of the "Village” that educates and empowers your children. We nurture an inner awareness and focus. We increase attention spans, fitness, powers of observation and safety consciousness, and we nurture cultural individuality while teaching life-skills that last a lifetime. Like you we want our students to live extraordinary lives full of health, compassion, clarity, and resilience. In a single semester of our classes for young people, your child will explore concepts such as non-violent conflict resolution, respect for self and others, goal setting, and healthy eating. For children from 4-years and up, we craft a special kind of education.
During the summer the AMP becomes an all-day martial arts camp, where the parents drop off their children at our martial arts school before 9:00 a.m. and then pick them up between 5:00 and 6:30 p.m.
Is the AMP baby sitting? No, it is real martial arts education. A child does not stop learning when the school day ends, so why should his or her education stop? We feel that children need education in discipline, respect, and self-confidence in addition to their academic education.
Our After school Martial arts Program provides a martial arts education which teaches discipline, respect, self-control, concentration, goal setting, positive thinking, and, of course, self-defense. It helps the children get healthy, well-balanced physical exercise while improving self-confidence. Thus it is the perfect character-building education to supplement their academic education.

Here is a video to educate about the IMPACT of Martial Arts on your Children and Community.
American Hapkido offers a lot more than just self-defense and physical agility. Quality schools offer educational martial arts programs which will teach your child history of the art they have chosen, Geography and origins of their art, safety and much more. But the best part of all is that Martial Arts will give your child the self-discipline to study. This leads to increased concentration at school, which often pays off in the form of better grades.
Develop Your Child Physically & Mentally
We will help your child develop physically. Quality programs increase speed, stamina and strength in children. The program also develops balance, coordination and timing. This will help in all other sports and activities. Perhaps the scariest problem facing many parents today is the thought that their child might get involved in drugs. The number of “good kids” taking drugs at a younger age is staggering. The Arts help promote anti-drug programs. On top of this programs are designed to promote self-confidence and self esteem which gives your child the courage to say NO in the face of peer pressure. Recent studies have shown that programs that focus on personal achievement such as martial arts are vastly more effective in this area than team sports.
Promote Leadership Skills
Our program will teach your child about setting goals, leadership, and taking responsibility. These qualities more than any others will help your child ensure their success in school, in college and in life.
Not all Martial Arts schools are created equal.
You must look responsibly for schools in your area that offer the unique combination of martial arts, education and leadership that you will find in a quality program. The school you choose should be open no more than five days a week and offer convenient schedules at affordable rates. So make an investment in your children that will pay off for the rest of their lives. Martial Arts focus on quality instruction and personal attention to students. Classes are taught by highly trained instructors committed to excellence and continued learning. When you enroll your children in the right Martial Arts program you can feel safe in the knowledge that they will be receiving quality instruction.
