Shinjiro began his Judo career in Japan and as he rose through the ranks he developed a passion for the sport. In 2001 Shinjiro took out the All Japan University Championships, walking away with the Gold was instrumental in Shinjiro’s rise through the ranks. In 2002 Shinjiro competed in the A Tournament World Cup in Warsaw where he secured the Bronze medal, as well as a second place at the All Japan University Championships. Over the next two years of competition, Shinjiro competed in the Kodokan Cup in Chiba Japan and the World Cup in Poland. In 2003 he placed third at the All Japan event and was runner up at the World Cup in Poland. In 2004 and 2005 Shinjiro secured back to back Silver medals at the All Japan Business Group Championship , and in 2005 Shinjiro won the Gold medal and became the Japanese Champion of the Kodokan. 

In 2006 Shinjiro continued on his Judo pathway by intensifying his training regimes as he geared towards an Olympic berth in Beijing. Shinjiro placed third at both the Belgian Open Championship in Vise and the All Japan Judo Championship in Fukuoka. He also walked away with another Gold medal crowning as he dominated through the Syria international Championship. Shinjiro was picking up momentum as he kept his spirits up towards a bright future. In 2007 Shinjiro competed exceptionally well at the Pacific Rim Judo Championships in Macau as he won his division and was crowned the Champion. He also placed second at the All Japan Business Group Championship and followed it up by duplicating that performance in 2008.

In 2008 Shinjiro mentally prepared himself for an Olympic berth. Taking place in the Beijing Olympic trials, Shinjiro had high hopes that he would qualify. After the event Shinjiro was crippled with disappointment as he came so close but could not secure a place in the Japanese team. After the tournament Shinjiro decided to get away from Judo so he moved to Florida in the United States of America. Shinjiro was not very fluent in speaking English and with little money, his new American life was not off to an easy start.

Shinjiro discovered how hard it was to build a life in America as he found himself being scammed and taken advantage of. Shinjiro was being drawn back into Judo coincidentally, and as he began training again he started competing in local tournaments. In 2009 Shinjiro placed third at the New York Open, and won multiple local tournaments. Shinjiro was showcasing his skills to a broad audience and as a result of this, Shinjiro had many people ask him to train them. Shinjiro was pleased as he transitioned away from competitive Judo and into becoming a highly sought after Judo coach.

After many ups and downs Shinjiro rebuilt his American life off the back of his family's Japanese philosophy. In Japan quitting is never an option, so for Shinjiro he used that belief in himself to rise above all the negative attention that he had endured. In 2010 Shinjiro started his own academy called Sasaki Judo where he serves the Casselberry area in Florida USA. At Sasaki Judo Shinjiro is all about helping and developing his students, Shinjiro’s love for Judo has opened many doors for him as he has become an amazing instructor for the last decade. Shinjiro also runs a special needs Judo class because he feels the community needs to be understanding of young people in need of sporting activities and togetherness.  

In 2011 and 2013 Shinjiro continued on his winning ways as he electrified the Judo arena. In 2011 he won the Sunshine State Games at 66 kilograms and then followed it up two years later by winning the event again. In 2013 after his second Sunshine State Games win he was also awarded with the Most Outstanding Men’s Athlete award. Shinjiro has showcased himself as one of Japan’s best Judokas to compete on the international stage.
