Sifu Joe Keit is proud to serve as a Firefighter/ Paramedic and also is very proud to have been a successful Kung Fu instructor for over 20 years. Even though he has accomplished much in his career, Sifu is more amazed by how many students he has trained and how well his students have done, not only in competitions, but also in their careers and personal lives.
His students are his inspiration to continue to teach, and many have followed him for 10 years or more. At an early age Sifu Joe trained in Martial Arts as a result of bullying, and the experience had a life changing impact which built a passion for the art of Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu, Sifu Joe began training this style under Grandmaster Lee Koon Hung.
Sifu Joe was very successful as a competitor in forms, weapons and fighting. He is a two time Grand Champion and won against a Shaolin Monk at Tournament 2000!!
Sifu Joe met Master Chow Keung in the year 2000 and quickly developed a good friendship with him. Master Chow of the style Hau Kuen Pek Kwar formely known as “Tai Shing Pek Kwar” began teaching Sifu Joe and since that time, Master Chow has passed on a wealth of knowledge to Sifu.
Sifu Joe believes that training in the martial arts can be a great influence on people’s lives and great care should be given to choosing a school, as not all schools are the same. Everyone at Joe Keit Kung Fu is dedicated to providing the best experience, as well as coaching and mentoring to help people overcome any challenge in life… together as a Kung Fu family.
Rosalie Keit gave herself a 50th birthday present in 1995 of beginning her Tai Chi training and falling in love with it!
Prior to her training she was a heavy smoker, smoking 4 packs of cigarettes A DAY. As her training progressed she was able to quit smoking and over time felt the side effects of smoking begin to digress.
Now at 75 years old she rides her bicycle 10 miles 5 days a week, and she even participates in our fitness kickboxing class.
*She takes ZERO medication of any kind for her health/wellbeing!*
Rosalie’s (aka Joma… Sifu Joe’s Mother) personality lights up the academy & she considers everyone here a part of her own family. Her smile and laugh are contagious & she is always here to help with anything! Rosalie Keit isn’t just “Joma” but like the whole schools ma!
Jacob has been training since 2004, his mother introduced him to Kung Fu when his father passed away & she wanted a positive male figure in his life; from that point on Sifu Joe has kept his word when he told her "don't worry, I'll be his family"
Jacob strongly believes in having a strict physical fitness regimen which has helped him achieve numerous championships in kung fu forms, weapons, and full contact fighting. He was a also a head lion in one of the few lion dance teams that preforms on the plum flower post, which go up to 20ft in the air!
Through his years of training he grew a true passion for Martial Arts and once he began teaching he grew a deeper passion he in being able to help so many students better themselves and become successful in their lives. Along with help to guide the students and keep them focused on the right path in life.
Jacob is a role model to all of our students, his personality reflects in all that he does, from his motivation in class pushing you to be your best, to treating every member like family, and his famous catch phrases that everyone soon comes to learn (“no slacking” / “hustle up”).

For Sifu Joe it has been a great experience watching siting AJ grow through martial art, fail many times and always dust himself off and try again. Instead of whining and complaining AJ looks on the brighter side and makes you laugh.
He brings his humility and humbleness to his training and how he teaches. Focusing on achieving the results, and always keeping things in a positive perspective.
