Jiushin Ryu is not an art in itself. It is a ‘school of thought’ within the art of Jujutsu.

As a fighting style, Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu is a modern style with modern training methods, includes old school techniques and its values are embedded in ‘Budo’ (Japanese Way of Martial Arts) and ‘Butoku’ (Martial Virtues).

Through the years of training in different styles, including Koryu (old school) Jujutsu, Iaijutsu, travelling, learning, and teaching, the Bajada brothers have always sought the deep understanding of the true essence of the Art.

Along the way, they adapted techniques to their own style of Jujutsu and forged their own methods which were demonstrated on several occasions around the world, attracting a lot of attention.

The emphasis of Jiushin Ryu:

- The effectiveness of technique.

- A never-ending process of evolution and refinement of skill.

- The essence, truth, high ideals of Yawara (the meaning of ‘Jiushin Ryu’).

For Jiushin Ryu students, the drilling and perfecting of the basics is essential, as is Randori (free practice / pressure testing) for the student to learn to apply the techniques in a real live situation. Jiushin Ryu is a versatile style of Jujutsu. It is a well rounded style, covering standing and ground, grappling and striking.

It advocates the core principles of Koryu (old school) Jujutsu, mainly that it is first and foremost a survival art, while it explores all arts related to Jujutsu. That is to say, that while it is crucial to have a solid base in the fundamental curriculum of Jiushin Ryu, the style is a never-ending process of evolution and refinement of skill. When it comes to training, we do not say: "this is Jujutsu and that is Judo or Karate or Aiki", but explore all possible effective techniques by all means. This is real 'Budo', the Way of Martial Arts.

As Tesshin Hamada Hanshi commended the Bajada brothers: "It is good that you are eager to learn the different styles. Training should not be stylistic".

Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu is based on modern effectiveness, rooted in classical virtues and has been proven even by their students in professional MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) competition.

Although the style is mainly unarmed combat, it also incorporates traditional weapon arts such as Bojutsu (six-foot staff), Jojutsu (four-foot staff), Hojojutsu (the art of tying in combat), Tessenjutsu (the art using the fan in combat), Bokuto Geiko (grappling with wooden swords), Knife training (Tanto) and the use of Tanbo.

Official Naming - Jiushin Kan Malta - Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu

On the 1st of July 2013 in Kyoto, Japan - Before their departure to Malta, the Brothers Bajada were called upon by Tesshin Hamada Hanshi, Chairman of the International Division of Dai Nippon Butoku Kai (Greater Japan Martial Virtues Society - General Corporation), for a private meeting.

At the end of the meeting, Hamada Hanshi bestowed upon the brothers the official Dojo name: Jiushin Kan – Hall of The True High Ideals of Yawara - with an official private ceremony, where for the first time ever, Hamada Hanshi presented the brothers with his Kodachi Bokuto with the official Kanji inscription of Jiushin Kan imprinted on one side and the motto ‘Shin Ki Tai Ittoh’ (When Mind, Body, Spirit are One, you will prevail), on the other. Both inscriptions were printed by Hamada Hanshi himself for the occasion. It was established that the style of Jujutsu taught at the Jiushin Kan Dojo of Malta shall now be officially called Jiushin Ryu Jujutsu.

The Special Bokuto is placed in the centre of the Kamiza in the Jiushin Kan Dojo, where it serves as a symbol of the mind set, path and the Jiushin Ryu training methods which are executed in the Jiushin Kan Malta under the guidance of both Renshi Brothers.
