Sifu Keith joined Sifu Alan as a student at the beginning of 2008. Prior to this, Sifu Keith had studied martial arts from the age of 7, starting with Kyokushinkai Karate under Steve Arneil and Felix Ntumazah in Crystal Palace for a few years. Later he enjoyed studying Jujitsu and Jeet Kune Do, before finally settling with Wing Chun Kung Fu.
After studying the art, he quickly fell in love with the martial art and decided he wanted to pursue a career in it. Firstly, he became a full-time instructor teaching and assisting at the Croydon School and then eventually opening his school in Sutton.
The school has gone from strength to strength since opening in 2010 and is now one of the most successful schools in the U.K. and an established black belt school for adults and children.
It now has a team of full-time instructors and many part time instructors supporting him to help all students to reach their goals and desires in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
Since then, his Kung Fu journey has been influenced by a variety of masters and grandmasters such as Sifu Alan Paterson and Sifu Sergio Iaderola.
James Briggs – 1st Technician: James has had a huge interest in martial arts throughout his life due to his influence of his dad. Due to his influence James joined our school at 16 years with his dad and has trained with us till present. Shortly after finishing our adult beginner programme he joined our instructor team full time because of his passion for kung fu. With his previous experience of being a swimming instructor he has developed from being a lead children’s instructor to a black belt instructor in the adults classes. After 7 years of being with us he is still developing and working towards his 2nd technician black belt under Sifu Keith.
Rena Harris – 2nd Technician: Children’s and Adult Instructor Rena joined Kung Fu under Sifu Keith at 17 years old to learn a new skill and self-defence. She thoroughly enjoyed the martial art ethos so much that she decided to become an instructor and pursue it as her full-time career. With her previous child care and sports experience, she was able to grow in her instructor training and has since then developed into a lead instructor for children and adults for the past 8 years.Sifu Keith Monk – 3rd Technician:
At Schools of Kung Fu we understand that everybody progresses at a different rate and comes to us with a different aim, be it for self-defence, fitness or for a new hobby.
Mastering a martial art requires lifelong learning and by teaching according to a student’s individual’s skill and knowledge, adapting approaches as necessary, we endeavour to get you to become the best you can be.
