As the inventor of the Swing Thing training aid, PGA professional Dennis Dawson often uses the device during lessons to correct imbalanced swing mechanics and develop consistent, successful swings. Drawing on 35 years of instruction, Dennis focuses on the fundamentals of a fluid swinging motion, particularly the importance of spinal angle, balance, and a follow-through that includes a seamless pirouette. While students hit shots during a lesson, Dennis diagnoses particular maladies responsible for undesirable flight patterns. Students first practice swinging without the ball or a caddy on their shoulders to get a feel for correct mechanics and then repeat the motion until proper form is built into muscle memory.

Kiska the wolf was the first wild animal to roam the grounds at Moorpark College. She soon became part of the Exotic Animal Training and Management (EATM) Program. With the addition of landscaping and enclosures that mimic natural habitats, the program transformed into a 5-acre zoo with primates, coyotes, emus, and an African lioness. The zoo currently houses almost 135 animals and caters to students in the EATM. In addition to class work, they visit the zoo daily, learning how to train and care for exotic animals. Patrons can witness these interactions with the animals at the shows or during the animal demonstrations where student trainers present animals performing behaviors they have trained.

Charging through fields of giant spools, over stacks of hay bales, and through winding trenches is a daily occurrence at Ambush Paintball & Airsoft Park. Six scenario theme fields and a tournament-grade turf arena field spread over 40 acres give players of all skills levels a variety of combat zones on which to wage simulated warfare. The City pits players in an unforgiving, paint-or-be-painted war zone consisting of 32 buildings over 40,000 square feet without a protected crosswalk in sight. History serves as the inspiration of the World War I field, where players begin their match inside a WWI–style trench, and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by either successfully defending their base or charging the field to overrun their opponent's trenches. Players of the Arena can practice their tournament skills on a field littered with inflated obstacles seen in professional competitions. Ambush Paintball & Airsoft Park's professional staff is on hand to help players with equipment and technical issues.

Matthew Woodard studied martial arts for over 30 years, spending much of that time honing his skills in the field. In addition to time in the dojo, he worked as a law enforcement officer and executive bodyguard - he even served on a protection detail for the Dalai Lama. Today, he drew upon this life of discipline when he founded the Todai Bujinkan Dojo branch in Moorpark. Though Matthew now travels the world serving on high profile protection details, other instructors carry on in his place, arming students with modern self defense moves and a traditional warrior's spirit during lessons infused with an edge of practicality.
