Jiushin Kan Malta is run by the Bajada Brothers and has as its quarters 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.
