Keith is a first degree Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Marco Canha from Checkmat. Keith was born in central Scotland but moved south for work reasons in 2002 where he discovered BJJ. Keith received his black belt after winning the European Championships for the second year running as a brown belt. This second achievement he rates as one of the best moments of his life, one that will only be matched as Keith says "by one of his students doing the same or better". This shows the dedication that Keith has for teaching.
