Southwest Florida Aikido Group

Come and see what we do! It's not about competition. Leave your ego, and your shoes, off the mat. We're here to make ourselves, and each other, stronger.

We're not here to compare ourselves to others; we're here to be better than we were yesterday. We practice a beautiful martial art in a positive, supportive environment. There's nothing else to wait for. You ARE ready, and we can't wait to meet you.

Operating as usual

Mountain Tiger Dojo has closed, folks. I plan to teach aikido again at another location at some point in the future when the COVID-19 craziness has calmed down, so this page will remain intact. If, in the meantime, you have any aikido related questions, feel free to ask. See you on the mat! - Sensei James Davis


In accordance with the Governor’s statewide order to stay at home, we’ll continue to keep the dojo closed through the month of April. Hopefully, our situation with the Coronavirus pandemic will have improved enough for classes to resume. Stay healthy and safe, folks.

Sensei James Davis


Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, we’re choosing to close the dojo at this time. We’re tentatively planning to resume classes on Monday, April 6th, if circumstances permit. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Stay safe, folks.

Update to Mountain Tiger Dojo Bujinkan Training Workshop: Thank you to Shihan Joseph for an amazing training seminar! Congrats to Lex K. for his black belt ranking and to David L. for his green belt ranking!


Just wanted to spread the news that Mountain Tiger Dojo is putting on a workshop in September. This one is not Aikido based, but I just wanted to get the knowledge out there for anyone who is cross-trained in martial arts. This is a Bujinkan Seminar and if anyone is interested please contact the dojo directly. Thank you.
