Safeguard

Developed to address two issues: bullying and child abduction. Besides various physical responses, Safeguard stresses the importance of awareness, intuition and instinct as the greatest weapons for personal safety. By sharpening both instinctive and defensive skills, the goal of this program is to make these defense tactics natural reflexes in the shortest possible time when needed. The goal is to give your child the ability to function without “shutting-down” during the stress, disturbance and shock of a sudden and spontaneous violent encounter. This program is by invitation only.

  • 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”

  • 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!!!”

  • Friendly family atmosphere for thirty years

    “Dear Master Shin, When Cole wanted to be a ninja at age 3, my husband only wanted to take him to Shin’s because of the positive experience he had there some 20 years ago. When Cole just sat there in class the first day, you told us that he’s just observing and will come around. You were absolutely right! Cole entered Shin’s this shy little kid who introduced himself as Batman. Now 4+ years later he is a slightly bigger kid with confidence, martial arts skills and respect for all those around him. You and your staff have been an incredible part of both of my kids’ lives, and I hope it continues for a very long time. May you continue to impress a positive experience in both kids and adults for many more years to come. Thank you! Willy, Charissa, Cole and Julia Harber”

  • My Path To Mixed Martial Arts

    “Master Shin has helped me in ways that prepared me for my future. Before I trained with Master Shin, I got picked on at school and couldn’t even do a push up. Now I have six fill contact fights and teach MMA (mixed martial arts) to children and adults. He has given me tools that will help me through out my life time. Thank you Master Shin! Dustin Arklin”
