Sensei James began his aikido training with Sensei Clif Williams, Jr. in 1998.  While he has also trained in iaido, taijutsu and taekwondo, Sensei Davis has chosen to focus his attention on aikido.  He believes aikido is an art that is uniquely suited for handling difficult and dangerous situations with kindness and gentleness.
