Learn about Anderson Professional Karate Center
The Anderson Professional Karate Center, a descendant of Rifkin Professional Karate Center, has been offering instruction and training in Karate, Taekwondo, Kickboxing, Jujitsu, and Aikido since 2000. Located in West Hills, CA, Anderson Professional Karate Center has worked hard to produce champions in life as well as in the martial arts. Whether you are interested in getting fit, losing weight, improving your coordination, balance and stamina…or whether you are interested in self-defense and increased self-discipline, our program is dedicated to reaching those goals.
There are many schools and different styles of martial arts to choose from. Our approach to training is focused on detailed performance through rigorous workouts and teachings from highly qualified instructors. Our programs are NOT geared towards testing every three months just to obtain a new color belt, BUT to produce quality martial artists, future leaders, and disciplined human beings.
Our end goal is to inspire increased self esteem, confidence, strength (both physically and mentally), and the ability to defend oneself. Honor, Discipline, and Respect have been the foundation of our school from day one.
Our base curriculum consists of a blend of Karate, Taekwondo, Kickboxing, Jujitsu, and Aikido.
Best known for its powerful kicking techniques, TKD is one of the more aggressive styles, blending basic kicks with those more advanced and graceful, such as the spinning and aerial kicking. Among the benefits of TKD are improved flexibility, speed and power.
Jujitsu (grappling) is a close quarters combat form of martial arts known for its’ utilization of joint locks, breaks, joint manipulation, throws, holds, submission and ground control techniques.
Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba. On a purely physical level it is an art involving some throws and joint locks that are derived from Jujitsu. Aikido focuses not on punching or kicking opponents, but rather on using their own energy to gain control of them.
While it may be true that the vast majority of street confrontations end up on the ground, most, if not all, begin standing up. With that being said, our curriculum is well rounded to provide our students the best possible chance of defending themselves in any situation.
