    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.

    • Tae Kwon Do Fun With Master Shin

      “Master Shin prepared our three sons in the areas of self discipline, respect for others and confidence to know they could deflect a problem situation. The best part of it all is Master Shin provided structure under the pretense of fun and excitement, from breaking wood and bricks, to roundhouse kicks, endless hours of techniques…all the while with smiles and loads of energy. The lessons our sons learned early on have now carried them thru their young adult lives. We adore Master Shin! Sincerely, Steve & Diane Arklin”

    • Santa Clarita Kids and Moms Love It at Shin’s – The Most Recommended Martial Arts School In Santa Clarita

      “I am a proud parent of three wonderful boys who have had the privilege of being a part of Shin’s Family for many years. Shin’s Family Tae Kwon Do Martial Arts Fitness Center was the perfect stepping stone for all of my boys prior to beginning elementary school. They developed important skills such as self control, following directions and taking turns. As my boys have grown, the benefits of being students of an exceptional martial arts program have become even more apparent. All of the positive life skills and virtues encouraged at Shin’s Martial Arts have assisted in making each of my boys educational journeys that much easier. Shin’s classes are highly physical and really work on overall health. Due to the techniques learned in class, my boys are quite agile and have great body awareness. These skills have helped them in other “team” sports. They have learned self defense skills which have proven to be invaluable toward their safety and confidence. I have also participated in and benefited from the women’s self defense classes offered at Shin’s Martial Arts. All of Shin’s instructors are kind, highly energetic, and use positive motivation to encourage all students to work to the best of his or her ability. I would highly recommend Shin’s Family Tae Kwon Do Martial Arts program to any parent trying to raise a healthy, confident, respectful & self motivated child. Shannon Ross”

      “My son Jacob has been going to the Shin’s after school program for a couple of years now. We LOVE Shins. They pick him up from school, he gets the majority of his homework done while he is there and gets to take class. My son was in other day care situations where they basically sat in a room or visited a playground. At Shins there is no sitting around, no being bored watching the clock for mom. The instructors are amazing. They truly care about our children. My son is completely comfortable at Shins… it is like his home away from home. He has progressed from Tae Kwon Do to the Master’s Club and the Pre-Team which has been absolutely amazing for his self esteem. It truly does take a village to raise a child and I am glad that Shins is part of my village. PS As a side note, I have even started taking class at Shins!”

    • 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”

      “There are no benches in martial arts. There is no right field in martial arts. Although not by design, the bench and the position of right field undermine the very thing that a sport should do for a child: raise self esteem. As a teacher I see first hand the role good self esteem plays in a student’s academic success. Self esteem can do more to determine how much a student can achieve then will raw intelligence, a good teacher or the latest in classroom technology. A quality martial arts training will raise a student’s self esteem. It is goal oriented (the coveted black belt), with small successes built in along the way (the other colored belts). No one sits on the bench. Students are involved the entire time. They learn team work as they hold bags for others to practice. They learn how to work with others as they spar. They learn how to win and how to lose, all the while keeping their self respect in tact. Not just any martial arts program can provide the above. It takes a special, talented and trained instructor to accomplish this. Master Shin is that instructor. He is the rare sort of teacher that can respond to young children, teenagers and adults equally. I have had Master Shin’s students sit in my own classroom. These students showed respect for their teachers, fellow classmates and themselves. They are driven to succeed, focused and possess self control. As a junior high teacher, I know these are rare qualities indeed for this age group. Master Shin provides quality instruction, a safe environment and serves as a positive role model. As a green belt in his adult class, I have seen first hand the kind of teacher Master Shin is. He is not only a role model for children, he is a role model for the teachers of your children, such as me.”
