Our Performance Training Methods

Valencia Martial Arts Center – (661) 338-2922

Shin’s Family Martial Arts Center uses proven, state-of-the-art training methods for all of our taekwondo, self-defense, martial arts, and fitness programs. Performance training is a combination of:

  • Plyometrics
  • Core conditioning
  • Biomechanics

Plyometrics incorporates exercises or drills aimed at linking strength with speed of movement. The power that is produced enables the muscle to reach maximum strength in the shortest time possible. Core training involves the integration and coordination of movement and stability in the entire body. Bio mechanics is the science that examines the internal and external forces acting on biological systems and the effects produced by these forces.

Importance of Proper Training

Shin’s Family Martial Arts Center recognizes the importance of performance training in building a solid foundation for our students in order for them to be successful in their martial arts, self-defense, and martial arts acrobatics (trampoline and tumbling) training. As a result, performance training is integrated into all of our unique programs offered at our Valencia martial arts center. These dynamic techniques give our students state-of-the-art functional training. This system not only improves martial arts, self-defense, and tricking skills, but overall athleticism. Students who participate in other sports benefit from this type of training.

Core conditioning, functional training, and plyometrics are the key elements of our performance training program. At Shin’s Family Martial Arts Center, not only do we focus on making our students better martial artists, we help create better athletes.

  • 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”

  • 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 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.”

  • 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”
