On Tuesday 3rd July 2012 our Sensei and founder of Taiho Jutsu within the UK 
BRIAN EUSTACE sadly died.

At the grand age of 81, Sensei Eustace passed away at Coventry Hospital following ill health. He left behind not only a loving family but also an incredible number of former colleagues and students of the martial arts.

At his funeral on July 19th we heard from many who paid their respects to a man who held the respect of a huge number of people.

Sensei Brian Eustace was a retired police sergeant who is held in high regard both in the UK and Japan. He had attained 8th Dan in Tomiki Aikido, 9th Dan in Taiho Jutsu and 2nd Dan in Judo.


It was thanks to Brian's dedication and creativity that UK police forces embraced Taiho Jutsu originally. Despite police forces moving away from practising martial arts Brian led a committed and determined movement to continue teaching the art right up until he lost his battle with his declining health.

Rest In Peace Brian and know that you leave a lasting legacy amongst your friends and students.
