In March of 1999 he had his first MMA Match in Hook N Shoot and it has been no looking back. Since then he has developed his ground game under Gracie Black Belt Patric Barbeiri and Doug Colenda. He also studies Muay Thai. In early 2003 Team Elite was formed by Keith, Patric Barbeiri and Doug Colenda. The Team has brought the best in the East together to train and further develop our MMA game.
