The Jiushin Kan Malta is run by the Bajada Brothers and has as its headquarters the Jiushin Kan (Dojo) in Luqa. It serves its founding purpose as a Budo (martial arts) institute and is dedicated to the complete art of Jujutsu which consists of both striking and grappling, both standing and ground, hence the validity of the style for self-defense training and its effectiveness in MMA (competition). Its values are embedded in Butoku (traditional martial virtues).
The Jiushin Kan is not a fighting gym, it is a Dojo, with all the implications that the word 'DO' in DO-JO stands for. In it, the best possible modern training methods and techniques are taught, paired with traditional martial arts values and etiquette.
This is the philosophy of Jiushin Kan Malta and Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu.
Although competition in not the focus of the Jiushin Kan, students who show interest in competition are given the opportunity and properly prepared according to the event.
The beginning: A few years after The Dojo had been running as a licensed Dojo, the first in Malta to be a privately owned building with all the local permits to operate specifically as a Martial Arts School, Christian and Roderick Bajada were determined to strengthen the roots of the organization.
Several discussions with other established educational institutions as well as the consultation of educational systems were essential to the main structure of this new organization. Official Manuals with the curriculum and other valuable sources were designed. The Jiushin Kan (formerly known as Classical Budo Malta) opened its doors as an Institute for the promotion of Martial Arts and the Classical Martial Virtues.
