An Unparalleled After School Program

We are particularly acclaimed for our unique After School Program, aimed at improving students not only physically but academically as well. As rigorously as our students train in their fitness classes, so too do we encourage and guide students into academic success. Dedicating portions of their afternoons to purposeful studying and homework completion encourages students to develop a positive attitude toward studying. This is done through providing the reward of our fitness classes and equipment, after homework is completed.

  • 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”

  • 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!”

  • 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!”

  • 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”
