West Midlands Taiho Jutsu Club


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. 

The West Midlands Taiho Jutsu Club was formed in the early 1990's and was originally based at the Police Headquarters at Tally-Ho under the leadership of the senior instructor - Sensei  Andy McCormack  (9th Dan). The club was affiliated to the British Taiho Jutsu Association under the guidance of its founder Sensei Brian Eustace (10th Dan - See History Tab).

Towards the end of the 1990's the club moved away from the Police Headquarters and membership was opened up to the general public. Over the next few years the club operated from a couple of locations before settling at the new permanent DOJO.

In 2010 as part of a larger development of Physical Intervention techniques throughout the British Police Force and private security industry, Sensei Andrew McCormack developed The UK Taiho Jutsu Association which concentrates on arresting art techniques.

At this time, the club moved away from the British Taiho Jutsu Association to be the founding club of the new association. The club upholds the original traditions of Taiho Jutsu whilst encompassing new developments

in techniques,  procedures and recognised good practice in arresting art and physical intervention.

The club continues to operate from the new permanent DOJO and is also still run by Sensei Andy McCormack. The club also actively participates in both National and International seminars where knowledge and experience is shared on a wider scale.
