Keith’s first contact with martial arts was as a school boy aged about 9 years old.
A friend at school had brought in a poster of the legendary Bruce Lee, taken from the film Enter the Dragon, at that point he didn’t have a clue who Bruce was!. It was some years later after watching some very poor quality Betamax videos that Keith discovered who Bruce Lee with his amazing skill was, spawning an interest in the world of martial arts.
It was after being assaulted in a night club & a subsequent brief stay in hospital that Keith decided to take up a martial art.
He chose the Korean art of Kuk Sool Won, training with renowned and well respected masters. Training for almost six years & reaching 1st degree black belt & half way to 2nd degree. As a career change and family life took over Keith gave up training for a number of years.
Upon resumption a different path was taken, trying kick boxing & another style of Kung Fu, but finally took up a Wing Chun based Kung Fu system, which has a more direct fighting style. There he met fellow Sifu, Ben Jewiss who become a friend & training partner for a number of years, both reaching black belt at the same time.
Keith was initially teaching on a select 121 basis but joined forces with Ben to combine their knowledge and skill to bring you their own twist on Kung fu. A Fast Effective Practical Kung fu.
Keith has been working closely with Tyrone Bray (from the Master Wong group) of Tyton Health and Performance in Ipswich since 2018. Tyrone is Master Wong`s number one prodigy having trained with him for over 20 years. Keith is able to incorporate the `Master Wong` system and is Norfolk`s only qualified instructor.
Keith travels weekly for intense 121 training sessions learning from Tyrones own depth of knowledge & from the Master Wong system. This not only adds to Keith`s skill set but the Master Wong system integrates & bolts on perfectly to Fusion Kung fu`s own fighting system adding a new dimension to training & combat.
Keith is fully CRB checked and a qualified First Aider. Fully insured.
