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.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • About 10 years ago, I walked through the doors of Shin’s with my 4 year old son.

    “I had no idea 10 years later we’d still be walking through those doors (although in a better location now). Shin’s has almost become our second home. There are so many reasons why we have stayed with Shin’s. Of course Tae Kwon Do is a beautiful and powerful discipline, but there are many reasons why we picked Shin’s in particular. First of all, it’s the staff. Master Shin teaches the students to be their best and he expects nothing less of his staff. The staff has been consistently firm yet caring in their approach. Not just anyone can teach Tae Kwon Do, but Shin’s staff can. When I watch a class I feel they really work hard to make sure the students have improved their skills before they leave. They are not afraid to stop the class and work on minor details. Secondly, it’s the flexibility. When we signed up, we were able to pick the program that worked best for our family. With 3 very active children, our schedule can get very busy. With Shin’s flexibility, we can still attend Shin’s while my children participate in other sports as well. I should also add that Tae Kwon Do can help condition your children to do even better with any other sports they may be doing. In fact, each of my children has gotten something different out of Shin’s. My oldest has actually used what was taught in Safeguard, to fend off a bully. My second child attends because he simply likes the idea of reaching black belt. My youngest likes that Shin’s helps her to perform better in her other sports. There are so many different reasons to take Martial Arts. Thirdly, Master Shin and his staff care. It amazes me that they know everyone’s name and what is going on in there lives. They aren’t just interested in teaching Tae Kwon Do, but they are also interested in their students. We absolutely love Shin’s. We wouldn’t still be attending 10 years later if we didn’t. We are lucky to have a school like this in Santa Clarita. The Nobles”

  • 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.”

  • 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!”

  • 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”

  • Mom's happy heart

    “My daughter who is 13 and has Autism (high functioning) has been going to the after school care and participating in 4 classes per week. I had the pleasure of watching her earn her yellow belt and was so impressed with the staff and their high energy to keep the kids focused and excited. My daughter loves to come to Shins and would go every day of the week if she could. I am thankful that when school is out, they still offer camp so that she isn't disappointed that she can't go. I can't say enough about this facility and the fact that my daughter is included in everything and is treated the same as everyone else makes this mother's heart very happy!!!”
