Comment: My thoughts are with Brian and his family. I didn't know him well but Tim talked of him often and I was very honoured that he took the time to say a few words at his funeral. I would only see him maybe twice a year at the Taiho competitions in Leicester and Ballyclare, but he always had a smile and never forgot Tim. You will be missed by so many people, who are the richer for the knowledge you shared with them. Sleep peacefully Brian. x

Comment: So sorry to hear that Brian Eustace has passed away. Brian played a major part in the development of Tomiki Aikido in the UK through his work as national coach and director of coaching within the BAA. As police national coach Brian played a major part in my journey into Tomiki Aikido & Taiho-jutsu. My original Aikido Instructor Roland Tann was a Police PTI and was taught by Brian. Although my journey changed I am grateful to Brian for getting me started.

Comment: I was so sorry to hear of Brians passing. Brian came over to Northern Ireland twice in the last number of years and ran seminars and gradings for us. He was extremely well thought off and he will be sadly missed. He was an example to all of us in what we wanted to aspire to in Aikido. Malachy O'Connor.

I remember Brian as the sensei that everyone looked up to. He was really committed to keeping people safe and his teaching has undoubtedly prevented many violent crimes. He's also helped many police officers to keep safe and keep others safe. To Brian's family, I am so sorry for your loss, Brian was a good man. It was a privilege to have known him and been taught by him.

Comment: Brian was a Sensie, mentor and friend to many. He was the pioneer that brought real self defence to the police service and because of him it is an important part of training for police officers today. I have many fond memories of Brian and they have all come flooding back. I first met Brian in 1979 on my PTI course and he taught me so much over the following years. Matte and Soremade

Comment: My heart goes out to Brian's family. As a Police PTI in the late 70s' and early 80s' I attended a number of courses run by Brian and I found him to be a wonderful, quiet and caring man with a keen sense of humour. It was an honour to know him and to benefit from his vast experience and expertise. I have never forgotten him and will always remember the part he played in my development.

Comment: I heard the other day that Grandmaster Brian Eustace has passed on. My family and I will pray for his family and he will be sorely missed. He accepted me as an overseas coach and was so kind to me along with the late Tim Burton. Again to the family and dear friends I am so sorry for your loss. Brian Eustace Sensei may you rest in peace. The world of Taiho Jutsu will not be the same without you and also we have lost a good man.
