Shinkai Judo Club is a community orientated Judo Club located in Lafayette, LA. We have fun, get some exercise, and play Judo.

Our club philosophies are based around the teachings and principals of Judo. Judo translated into English means "Gentle Way". The main principles are as follows: Seiryoku Zen’ryo "Maximum Efficiency with Minimal Effort", Jita kyoei "Mutual Welfare and Benefit" and Jika no kansei "Strive for personal perfection".

These principals have far reaching uses not only in the sport but also throughout life.

The main goal of this club is to give back to our community while developing each participant to the maximum extent possible, constantly improving and striving for perfection.
