The Maltese team, led by the Renshi Brothers, demonstrated on both the major occasions for this event. On April 29th, throughout the Fourth World Butoku Sai / 50th Japan Butoku Sai, the Maltese team demonstrated its skill in Jujutsu on the hard wooden floor of the Butoku Den in front of the Japanese Honbu leaders with all their merits and legacies. Throughout the demonstrations, Brothers Bajada Renshi executed their Jujutsu techniques with lightning speed which were followed by Bojutsu and Hojojutsu. On April 30th, the Renshi Brothers Bajada and their students demonstrated in Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu and again in Jujutsu for the second main event, the International Rensei Taikai.
Amongst the honors and awards achieved, Classical Budo Malta was twice presented with the highest awards for the occasions in both events ‘Dantai Yushu Sho’ Outstanding team Award. During the official presentation Dr. Hiroyuki Tesshin Hamada Hanshi explained that the eagle standing on the World, as depicted on the awards, is meant to symbolize the strength of the Dojo receiving this award. Antoine Portelli, the highest graded student by the Renshi brothers within this team, was also honored with the Doryoku Sho.
At the official closing ceremony, Christian Bajada Renshi was one of the chosen leaders to deliver a speech, which allowed him to express gratitude for the priceless opportunity to train with the Japanese Koryu Masters. Dr. Hamada Hanshi then awarded each of the chosen leaders with a golden color shovel that had been used earlier in a special ceremony by the Honbu leaders to plant cherry blossom trees in the Butoku Den grounds, an act of commemoration in honor of the 50th anniversary of the event. This, as Dr. Hamada Hanshi himself proclaimed, was meant to symbolize the leaders of the present planting strong trees to flourish with the leaders of the future.
Kuwahara Hanshi, President of the Honbu board presented all the international leaders with a beautiful tsuba with the design that was used by the legendary Miyamoto Musashi. His Excellency Higashi Fushimi Jigo gifted to all those present for the occasion a fine traditional Japanese fan embellished with calligraphic inscriptions. Vice president Nakada Hanshi, amongst others, also gifted the members present with precious commemorative ornaments.
