Shinmura Judo @ Piapot Nation

Our Story

Shinmura Judo’s pledge to the Piapot First Nation, is to introduce judo and create excellence using a unique style that fuses together, Judo and First Nation values. This one of a kind collaboration is based on the on the dedication of Kim Bergey Kaip and Janna Pratt. Together, with Kim’s lifelong practice of judo, and Janna’s deep connection to First Nations culture, their blend will help the students (Judokas) implement judo as a lifestyle. The students will be learning judo in an environment that encourages the development of their physicality and mental well being in each class. They will be learning the Japanese language used in judo along side the Cree language.

Our Path

Each student will have different goals set in judo, whether its doing judo for recreation or competition, Shinmura Judo is committed to developing their skills with opportunities within the province. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children, but it is not necessary.
