UK Taiho Jutsu

Taiho Jutsu is a Japanese Arresting Martial Art, previously taught exclusively to the Japanese Police before it was introduced in the United Kingdom in 1973. Taiho Jutsu has developed into an effective and comprehensive form of self defence.

The UK Taiho Jutsu Association is a National Association for the development of Taiho Jutsu in the UK, which is run by Andy McCormack (7th Dan). It also has very strong links and promotes Taiho Jutsu with European Taiho Jutsu Associations.

It is with regret that I have to announce the death of Sensei Brian Eustace 10th Dan on Tuesday 03.07.2012

Sensei Eustace was the man responsible for bringing the art of Taiho Jutsu from Japan to the United Kingdom. He was personally responsible for the safety of police officers through the introduction of a national programme of training for the police service.

His knowledge and skills within the art will be greatly missed.
