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.

  • 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”

  • Santa Clarita Families Love It at Shin’s Family Taekwondo Martial Arts Fitness Center

    “Dear Master Shin, We would like to thank you and all of your fabulous instructors at Shin’s Family Martial Artsfor all the great training and exercise our family has received at your facility. We have been attending classes at Shin’s for many years, and we have found that t he benefits our boys have received are far beyond the physical work out. It has boosted their self confidence and self control. They interact well with their peers and are learning to diffuse certain situations. It is such a great form of exercise and training. Not only are they learning to be healthy and stay active, they are learning respect and discipline and the best part is that they are having fun and don’t even know it! So again thanks to you and all the instructors at Shin’s, you all go out of your way to make working out enjoyable and fun! The Lomeli Family”

  • 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.”

  • Shin’s Family Tae Kwon Do Martial Arts Fitness Center – The Best Place In Santa Clarita for All Your Martial Arts Needs…and More!!!

    “Nearly nine years ago our daughter Jamie asked if she could “try karate.” This simple request began a great family adventure that none of us could have ever imagined. We enrolled Jamie at Shin’s Family Martial Arts at the age of eight not knowing how long ‘her trial’ would actually last. With the support of Master Shin (and his amazing staff) our journey has taken a number of twists. Jamie quickly realized she “loved Tae Kwon Do” and attending Shin’s. While having fun Jamie became physically fit and matured. We appreciated that our basic family tenants of integrity, honesty and the benefits of hard work were naturally reinforced as a part of the Shin’s curriculum. As a family we’ve met so many wonderful families and kids at Shin’s. Our own “kid” is now a young woman and a second degree black belt. She enjoys assisting younger children at Shin’s and now helps Master Shin with coaching Team Fury (Shin’s Family Martial Arts Center’s National Sparring Team)… what a journey! Master Shin, his Instructors and office staff are professional, courteous and caring. They truly love what they are doing and it shows! We’d invite anyone to contact us about the benefits of joining the Shin’s Family. It’s truly a fun, family environment! Greg, Kathy & Jamie Reynar”

  • Why You Should Take Tae Kwon Do

    “INTRO Think: Many people are victims of bullies who beat them up. Do you want to be one of them? To prevent you from getting bullied, there is a thing called Tae Kwon Do. Discover this martial art, as we journey through kicks and punches to learn three good reasons for studying Tae Kwon Do: Self-Defense, Stature, and Discipline. REASON 1: Self-Defense To begin with, you should learn Tae Kwon Do because if somebody attacks you, you can defend yourself. Many kids are bullied each year, and some are even kidnapped, but you can prevent yourself from being one of them by learning this martial art. For example, most people who can hurt you, can easily be stopped by a kick between the legs. Besides, if your muscles are strong enough and you’re in top shape, you could defend yourself and even if the person manages to punch you, you might not get hurt so bad. Tae Kwon Do can defend and protect you REASON 2: Stature Secondly, you should learn Tae Kwon Do because when you get fit, you’ll look quite impressive delivering punches and kicks. Have you seen those marital art movies? When you become a black-belt, you could perform moves like those. Who knows? Once you get really good at Tae Kwon Do, you could get signed up to be in a movie, and, maybe you might be a star! In any case, Tae Kwon Do can make you look impressive Why You Should Take Tae Kwon Do REASON 3: Discipline Finally, you must take Tae Kwon Do to learn discipline. Yes, I said discipline. Tae Kwon Do isn’t just about the moves. It doesn’t matter how strong your kicks are, or how fast your punches are, if you are undisciplined, you won’t get your next belt. To have discipline, do your best, be respectful, say “Yes sir” to anything your Master says in class, bow to the flags when you come in/out of the Dojang, and remain quiet at all times, except when you are kicking. When you kick, yell “kiap!” Just doing those simple things will make you better liked by the instructors and admired by others. Discipline means that you train the body and mind to react automatically, and not to use force unless necessary. Tae Kwon Do is discipline COUNTER-ARGUMENT Many people say that if someone fights you, you should tell an adult. But what if the bullying doesn’t stop after you tell? What if someone starts punching and beating you? Are you just going to let he/she finish you off, and then later tell on them? Or, are you going to show your opponent what you think of the bullying? Tae Kwon Do is about self-defense CLOSING So, as you have learned, Tae Kwon Do isn’t just kicks. It’s discipline, respect, stature and self-defense. I believe that Tae Kwon Do promotes health, learning, protection and fun. Remember, Tae Kwon Do is: Defense and Offense, Stature, Discipline and Respect. So, why don’t you sign up for some Tae Kwon Do lessons today? KIAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
