Stephen M. Fabian, PhD
H. E. Davey is unique in the West for his active and holistic training in, and application of, a true East Asian Way of life. What I find most impressive in Davey Sensei is his true commitment to journeying along this Way and to sharing it with others. He is one of those rare individuals who not only knows what he's talking about, but can "walk his talk" and deliver; he's the genuine article, and that is indeed rare. It has become common for Westerners to claim "mastery" of this or that martial art or Asian cultural practice, but it is relatively uncommon for any individual to have the depth and breadth of mastery of the arts—in or out of Asia—as does Davey Sensei.
— Stephen Fabian Sensei has been involved in the Asian martial arts for many years. He lived in Japan and is a direct disciple of the 18th and 19th generation Headmasters of Hontai Yoshin Ryu jujutsu. Fabian Sensei has received a high-level teaching certification, and he was the first American licensed to teach this ancient art in the U.S. He holds a seventh-degree black belt from the Shudokan Martial Arts Association.
