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 Best Taekwondo Martial Arts School

    “Dear Master Shin – We wanted to take a moment to thank you and your wonderful staff for this past year at Shin’s Family Taekwondo Martial Arts Fitness Center. Your exceptional instructors have kept our 4 year-old son’s interest in gymnastics, trampoline, tumbling and martial arts from wavering with their creative and kind demeanor. Our 9 year-old daughter was nervous about starting gymnastics due to a bad experience at a previous gym but your kind and wonderful staff immediately put her mind at ease and has since loved coming to Shin’s. As parents, we can’t tell you how much we appreciate knowing that our children will be taught, respected, and cared for by your professional staff as if they were working with their own child. Thank you – The Battistini Family”

  • 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”

  • Shin's Family Martial Arts is the best!

    “I am so thankful to have found Shin's Family Martial Arts! I have been taking classes since 2007 and I have loved every second of it. All the instructors are great with kids and make the classes a lot of fun. I even had fun taking the tougher classes when I was training for my first degree black belt. The instructors are very motivating and enthusiastic every day too! I have learned so much at Shin's and I love sharing it all with my family. Every day when I come home I always tell my family about all of the new skills and tricks that I learned. Plus, Shin's is a great way to work out while having a great time.”

  • Tae Kwon Do, Gymnastics, XMA & Krav Maga at Shin’s – Santa Clarita’s Premier Martial Arts Training Facility

    “Our son came to us and said he would really like to attend a martial arts studio. We began to search around for a school and it took us TWO years to find what we were looking for because we wanted a good balance of martial arts which teaches honor, respect and commitment mixed with fun. Well, that is EXACTLY what our family discovered at Shin’s. The wide variety of classes from tae kwon do, gymnastics, XMA and Krav Maga made it perfect for our entire family. After a year, the family still has a love for their classes and has transformed our family into a strong, close, fun family which encourages each other as we climb and sweat through belt ranks. Forever Thanks, The Kay 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.”
