About Us

Shin's Family Martial Arts Center in Valencia

Since 2000, our martial arts center has been providing Valencia and the Santa Clarita Valley with high-powered, engaging programs. In our 12,000 square foot facility, we offer a variety of classes meant to cater to many ages and ability levels. Whether you're a young beginner or have several years of experience, you can find a program suited to you. Some of our most popular classes are in our after school programs, which provide students an encouraging environment in which they can better themselves both physically and mentally. Martial arts encourage whole-body training, sculpting muscle tone, and teaching students to focus their energies into a productive outlet.

We were voted Best Martial Arts School in 2016 by The Los Angeles Daily News.

Each year since our opening, we have focused on constantly improving and expanding our programs. We employ instructors who are passionate educators, purposefully reaching out to each student at his or her level. Through our programs, students learn essential techniques for self-defense, and build confidence and self-esteem in the process.

Incomparable After School Programs

As your instructor, it is our job to help you access your inner strength and draw it out in order to help you become confident and bold. Statistically, students who apply themselves to a physical activity do better in school, and in their social worlds as well. This is because lessons learned in our classes manifest themselves into character qualities that are applicable to daily life.

At Shin's Family Martial Arts Center, we instill distinct qualities into our students, such as:

  • Discipline
  • Patience
  • Diligence
  • Focus
  • Self-confidence
  • Awareness
  • Humility
  • Interdependence and cooperation
  • Self-control

Training That Goes Beyond Martial Arts

Not only do we provide prestigious martial arts training programs, but we also have other opportunities for students to engage in healthy, fitness-oriented activities. In our facility, we also provide zip lines for cross-training exercises. Olympic-sized trampolines offer another way to work on core strength and cardio endurance.

  • Best after school program in Santa Clarita

    “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!”

  • Discipline, Courage, Determination… and Just Plain Hard Work.

    “Discipline, courage, determination, and just plain hard work. These are words that come to mind when I think about my experiences at Shin’s Black Belt Academy. Since my first day of class to the present, each time I enter the studio I know I am in for one tough workout that will challenge me and teach me the aforementioned words. The classes are well organized, taught with passion by Master Shin, and constantly changing to best suit his students. The environment of the classes are a direct result of Master Shin’s personality and ability to make his students feel like they are accomplishing something special, which they are. Master Shin’s pleasant demeanor and obvious enjoyment for his job, along with his excellent teaching techniques and verbal praises have made me more aware of how I can better myself as a teacher and basketball coach. Having also seen Master Shin work with children and teenagers I am convinced that he is truly a gifted teacher and a very good person.”

  • 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”
