Shin's After School Program​We believe it is important to stay present with the students, rather than leaving them to their own devices. Through interaction with their peers and supervisors, students learn to remain focused on the task at hand. Over the years during which we have provided this program, we have witnessed a marked improvement in student grades and in students' attitudes toward take-home work.

Benefits of our after school program:

  • Improves concentration skills
  • Encourages students to remain focused
  • Interaction between peers and supervisors
  • Our programs are award-winning
  • Strong emphasis on family values and discipline

  • 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”

  • 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’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”

  • 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”

  • Building better futures

    “Dear Master Shin, I want to thank you and all the instructors I’ve had at Shin’s for your time, patience, and support for the past nine years. You gave me encouragement when things got tough. You taught me staying power when I wanted to quit and you taught me to never give up. You have given me pride in what I have accomplished that can only be earned thru years of hard work and commitment. I could not have accomplished my goal of earning a black belt if you were not there for me each time. I started at Shin’s when I was four years old. I was awkward and I struggled with many of the basic skills. There were lots of times I wanted to quit but my parents wouldn't let me. I had a hard time when I couldn't do a round house kick or a flying side kick perfectly. It was then that I wanted to give up. You always told me, “Never give up!” You also told us to “love the pain.” Well, with your help and my parents help, I didn’t give up, but I don’t know if I love the pain, even to this day. You were always there to encourage me and let me know when I mastered a skill. I remember one time at the old building; I did a flying side kick perfectly and you made a really big deal about it, telling the whole class to look at me do it again. That made me so proud and happy. It was times like those that made me want to keep doing Taekwondo. Now I have my Black Belt; I can still hardly believe it. It is one of the greatest accomplishments of my life and one that I will always treasure. I know that in the future when difficulties come my way in whatever I’m doing, I can overcome them if I stay on my goals and never give up. Thanks for everything!”
