May he rest in peace and I look forward to catching up with his students at the Budosai in July where we can raise a glass of red wine to his memory.

Je suis sans voix en apprenant cette nouvelle qui m’a beaucoup attristé. Nous perdons un guide de grandes vertus. Il a été pour moi plus qu’un Sensei. Il était très sensible à la progression d’un karaté ka et il avait une grande technicité et des valeurs qu’il nous a fait partager pendant tous ces années. Je ne t’oublierai pas. Merci Sensei pour tout.Toutes mes condoléances à Brigitte son épouse, à Charlotte et Margot ses deux filles, et ainsi qu’à toutes les personnes qui l’ont connu.
I'm speechless at the news I was very saddened. We lose a great virtues guide. It was for me more than Sensei. He was very sensitive to the progress of a karate ka and he had great technical skills and values he shared with us during all these years. I will never forget you. Sensei thank you for everything.
My condolences to his wife Brigitte, Charlotte and her two daughters Margot, and as well as everyone who knew him.

I want to express my sadness at the loss of Sensei Bernard Cousin. Humbly, I recall his advice and corrections when he looked at us practicing karate, he was a smart look. I will always remember his last advice in the Gasshuku of Portugal 2011.
Rest in peace Sensei Cousin
