Child Development Programs

Valencia Martial Arts Center Dedicated to Your Children's Growth

Participating in a physically engaging activity helps stimulate your children's growing minds while teaching them to master new developmental stages. As children transition through each stage, our programs are designed to shepherd in new skills while honing old ones. These programs teach children to engage with their peers, offering a safe and stimulating environment in which they can explore martial arts acrobatics, beginning martial arts, trampolines, and other activities that every young one naturally enjoys.

Prepare Your Child for Kindergarten

If your child will begin kindergarten soon, enroll them in a child development program for their age group! Lessons learned in our developmental programs are meant to ease the transition into full-time schooling. We give your child the tools he or she needs in order to succeed in the educational system.

Children who participate in our pre-K and kindergarten programs often exhibit:

  • An increase in ability to follow directions
  • Positive classroom participation
  • More confidence when interacting with their peers
  • Ability to focus for longer periods of time
  • Heightened awareness of their personal need to expend energy in positive outlets

Fostering a Positive Learning Environment

At Shin's Family Martial Arts Center, our programs are intended for children ages 3 to 5, just before or right as they are getting ready to participate in daily classroom activities. Often, parents find that children who participated in our programs are more ready to engage in the classroom environment, for they have learned how to listen to instructors and how to co-exist with their classmates in a classroom setting. With instructors who have many years of experience working with children, and are safety certified, you can rest assured knowing your child is being led by instructors who truly have his or her well-being at heart.

  • 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”

  • 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.”

  • 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!!!”

  • 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.”

  • Santa Clarita Kids and Moms Love It at Shin’s – The Most Recommended Martial Arts School In Santa Clarita

    “I am a proud parent of three wonderful boys who have had the privilege of being a part of Shin’s Family for many years. Shin’s Family Tae Kwon Do Martial Arts Fitness Center was the perfect stepping stone for all of my boys prior to beginning elementary school. They developed important skills such as self control, following directions and taking turns. As my boys have grown, the benefits of being students of an exceptional martial arts program have become even more apparent. All of the positive life skills and virtues encouraged at Shin’s Martial Arts have assisted in making each of my boys educational journeys that much easier. Shin’s classes are highly physical and really work on overall health. Due to the techniques learned in class, my boys are quite agile and have great body awareness. These skills have helped them in other “team” sports. They have learned self defense skills which have proven to be invaluable toward their safety and confidence. I have also participated in and benefited from the women’s self defense classes offered at Shin’s Martial Arts. All of Shin’s instructors are kind, highly energetic, and use positive motivation to encourage all students to work to the best of his or her ability. I would highly recommend Shin’s Family Tae Kwon Do Martial Arts program to any parent trying to raise a healthy, confident, respectful & self motivated child. Shannon Ross”
