Sansei Rocky is great. My daughter just started to attend class and she is 3 years old and a bit wild. Rocky is patient yet firm and is a great teacher. My daughter is excited and counts the days down until next class. Highly recommend sending your child here for nursery ninja class. More...

My son has been attending for 4 years. Not only has he developed better focus and self control but I appreciate the character development Sensai Rocky incorporates into their workouts. He is not just developing the skill of karate, but the heart and values as well. Highly recommend this program. More...

Sensei Rocky is amazing. He connects with all of his students of all ages. We had an issue with bullying at school and I let Sensei Rocky know. He immediately taught the entire class self defense. He does incorporate self defense into his usual instruction which he explains to the class. He's also a comedian so class is pretty fun. Did I mention the affordable classes and the chance to go 4 days a week? This is a great place to learn karate! More...

Amazing karate school! Sensei Rocky loves his students and brings godly teaching and insight in his classes. Both my kids attend and have made new friends, become stronger physically, and really try to walk out what they learn weekly. We are so blessed to have our karate family and dojo! Thank you sensei for all of your time that you pour into our school and your students. More...

You want traditional Shotokan Karate, this is the place to go!  Sensei Rocky is an incredible instructor and the dojo is great!  Karate Kamp in the summer is so much fun and a great experience for the kids. More...

I am so glad we found Zanshin Shotokan Karate! At first, I wanted my son to take karate lessons to help with respect and obedience, but when my son and daughter tried it out...They immediately LOVED it and wanted to do more! Now, both of my kids take lessons and can't wait to go each week and sometimes, multiple times per week! My daughter has more self confidence and my son tries to be helpful and respectful. Karate has even brought my kids closer together. I am so blessed to have this in my kids lives and by the teachings that Sensei Rocky shares from the Bible that apply to all of our lives. It's just amazing on what an impact this class has on the students, especially my kids. Thank you so much!! More...

I started off taking my kids for karate, and now I'm going for kickboxing, too! It's a great workout, fantastic discipline and a positive spiritual environment, focused on God's love. Sensei Rocky incorporates Biblical truths into each lesson, as well as a WHOLE lot of fun. More...

I have been training at Zanshin Shotokan since July of 2013 with my two children and am so impressed with the quality instruction and Christ centered approach. This is just as much about the ministry as it is about karate. It's kind of like going to church but getting to throw roundhouse kicks. More...

Rocky Whatule, a former National Karate Champion, teaches my kids self control, self defense and discipline through the time-honored training of Shotokan Karate.  His love of the art and the caring for his students is plainly evident during his instruction.  My son has ADHD and this is one of the areas in his young life where he receives, not only strong encouragement, but practical application of how to properly focus, while at the same time develop the character needed to effect self control in his own life.  He does all of this using Biblical principles, without the introduction of eastern mysticism - a win/win for us!I wholeheartedly suggest anyone in the Santa Clarita area who might be considering adding a martial art to their schedule, contact Rocky and begin to develop the character in you and your children that will last a lifetime.Classes are conveniently timed, as well:  Tuesday and Thursday nights and Saturday mornings at the South Valley Church on Valley St in Newhall.  I understand he may add more times as classes grow in size, so stay tuned....
