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 (Jiu-Jitsu), which consists of both striking and grappling, both standing and ground, hence the validity of the style for self-defence, 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 Martial Arts Dojo. 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, generally speaking, competition in not the main focus of the Jiushin Kan, students who show interest in competition, and who are committed to train accordingly, are given the opportunity and properly prepared according to the event. A specialized ‘competition team’ has been created for this purpose.
The beginning: A few years after The Dojo had been running as a licensed Dojo, the first in Malta 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 Malta opened its doors as a Martial Arts Institute.
