    Here at Shin's, we understand how hard it is for working parents to make daycare or after school arrangements for their children and we offer Shin's After School Homework Club. This is a leadership based program that includes pick up from school, homework help, free play, trampoline, tumbling, Tae Kwon Do, Martial Arts, and Self Defense classes. At an affordable price, parents who take advantage of this club typically pay less than what they would for another child or daycare.

    • Mom's happy heart

      “My daughter who is 13 and has Autism (high functioning) has been going to the after school care and participating in 4 classes per week. I had the pleasure of watching her earn her yellow belt and was so impressed with the staff and their high energy to keep the kids focused and excited. My daughter loves to come to Shins and would go every day of the week if she could. I am thankful that when school is out, they still offer camp so that she isn't disappointed that she can't go. I can't say enough about this facility and the fact that my daughter is included in everything and is treated the same as everyone else makes this mother's heart very happy!!!”

    • Santa Clarita’s Ultimate Training Center for Tae Kwon Do Martial Arts

      “Where can you go in Santa Clarita for National level training in Tae Kwon Do sparring? Shin’sFamily Martial Arts! Our four daughters were small, shy, sweet girls who needed to grow in confidence and physical ability (and a little self defense could come in handy down the road). So we enrolled them at Shin’s as early as 3 years of age. The instructors are fantastic and know how to challenge kids both physically and mentally. One of the great growing opportunities occurs in competition with winning and losing at tournaments. And fortunately at Shin’s, there is a lot more winning. Our oldest daughter after 4 years at Shin’s placed 1st at the Jr. Olympics. Our girls are still small, shy, and sweet; but now they are also agile, strong, capable of performing under pressure, and they can fight! Takeshi Nakazawa”

    • My son begged me to take Tae Kwon Do classes for two years…

      “until I finally relented, and I’m really glad that I did. From the very first day, he loved it, both the Tae Kwon Do training and the gymnastics. I was pleased that Shin’s offers trampoline and tumbling which allowed him to continue his gymnastics training while introducing Tae Kwon Do. I also loved both the flexibility of Shin’s schedule, which offers a multitude of class times, and the variety of classes offered. My son hasn’t gotten bored; twice last year, new classes were introduced that took him into new directions. The instruction at Shin’s is top notch. I’ve been very impressed with their teaching techniques; the instructors break down each kick or strike into its basic components so that it’s easy to understand. Students are given guidance on improving their technique and are challenged to take their skills to the next level. The instructors provide an atmosphere of positive encouragement while at the same time teaching discipline. They emphasize showing respect to each other, instructors, and parents. They include safety talks and instruction on how to handle bullies. The classes are well organized with warm-ups and conditioning at the beginning of each class, followed by a variety of drills. But, each class is unique so you don’t get bored in the same-old routine. Over the last 10 months, my daughter, husband and I have all joined up as well, so now it’s a family affair. We attend classes together a couple times a week, and go our own way on other days to classes that match our specific interests. Over dinner, we tell each other about new techniques we learned. Together, we are working towards our goals, and Shin’s has provided us with a new focus. Each of us is at a different level in training (different belt levels) and we keep each other motivated to progress to the next level. I like that I have the opportunity to participate in the kid’s activities, and also that we aren’t the only ones doing so. There are quite a number of families that participate, and we all encourage each other. Since we started taking classes at Shin’s, my husband and I have both lost weight and have more energy. I find that I’m much better at coming regularly to these classes than I ever was at going to the gym, partly because I’m going there anyway to take the kids to their classes. But also, the friendly atmosphere and support from classmates and the instructors keeps us motivated to stick with it. I feel fortunate to have found Shin’s, as it has provided our family a common experience that has brought us together and provided healthy and positive benefits to all of us. Nilsen Family”

    • About 10 years ago, I walked through the doors of Shin’s with my 4 year old son.

      “I had no idea 10 years later we’d still be walking through those doors (although in a better location now). Shin’s has almost become our second home. There are so many reasons why we have stayed with Shin’s. Of course Tae Kwon Do is a beautiful and powerful discipline, but there are many reasons why we picked Shin’s in particular. First of all, it’s the staff. Master Shin teaches the students to be their best and he expects nothing less of his staff. The staff has been consistently firm yet caring in their approach. Not just anyone can teach Tae Kwon Do, but Shin’s staff can. When I watch a class I feel they really work hard to make sure the students have improved their skills before they leave. They are not afraid to stop the class and work on minor details. Secondly, it’s the flexibility. When we signed up, we were able to pick the program that worked best for our family. With 3 very active children, our schedule can get very busy. With Shin’s flexibility, we can still attend Shin’s while my children participate in other sports as well. I should also add that Tae Kwon Do can help condition your children to do even better with any other sports they may be doing. In fact, each of my children has gotten something different out of Shin’s. My oldest has actually used what was taught in Safeguard, to fend off a bully. My second child attends because he simply likes the idea of reaching black belt. My youngest likes that Shin’s helps her to perform better in her other sports. There are so many different reasons to take Martial Arts. Thirdly, Master Shin and his staff care. It amazes me that they know everyone’s name and what is going on in there lives. They aren’t just interested in teaching Tae Kwon Do, but they are also interested in their students. We absolutely love Shin’s. We wouldn’t still be attending 10 years later if we didn’t. We are lucky to have a school like this in Santa Clarita. The Nobles”

    • Building better futures

      “Dear Master Shin, I want to thank you and all the instructors I’ve had at Shin’s for your time, patience, and support for the past nine years. You gave me encouragement when things got tough. You taught me staying power when I wanted to quit and you taught me to never give up. You have given me pride in what I have accomplished that can only be earned thru years of hard work and commitment. I could not have accomplished my goal of earning a black belt if you were not there for me each time. I started at Shin’s when I was four years old. I was awkward and I struggled with many of the basic skills. There were lots of times I wanted to quit but my parents wouldn't let me. I had a hard time when I couldn't do a round house kick or a flying side kick perfectly. It was then that I wanted to give up. You always told me, “Never give up!” You also told us to “love the pain.” Well, with your help and my parents help, I didn’t give up, but I don’t know if I love the pain, even to this day. You were always there to encourage me and let me know when I mastered a skill. I remember one time at the old building; I did a flying side kick perfectly and you made a really big deal about it, telling the whole class to look at me do it again. That made me so proud and happy. It was times like those that made me want to keep doing Taekwondo. Now I have my Black Belt; I can still hardly believe it. It is one of the greatest accomplishments of my life and one that I will always treasure. I know that in the future when difficulties come my way in whatever I’m doing, I can overcome them if I stay on my goals and never give up. Thanks for everything!”
