Background

Keith is the founder and lead student at Highland Combatives in Meyersdale Pennsylvania where he holds his Urban Combatives Study Group. Keith is also an Instructor at Kick Masters Karate in Frostburg MD where he teaches an eclectic mix of Krav Maga, Urban Combatives and Kembativz Brand Combatives. He also conducts seminars on self-protection, home invasion/defense and active incident trainings.

Keith’s introduction to “reality-based combatives” was through Tim Larkin’s Target Focus Training. He developed his interest in Krav Maga through Nir Maman, former Chief Counter-Terror and Krav Maga Instructor for the IDF Counter-Terror and Special Operations School. Keith has also studied the Instinctive Close Quarters Combat System developed by Special Operations and Security Expert, Glenn Boodry. He has trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Combatives, and Krav Maga under Mr. Kirk McTaggert at Kick Masters Karate, LLC. Keith considers himself a student.

He has sought out training with some of the best in the combatives community to ensure that what he studies and what he instructs has been pressure tested and proven effective under the duress of the street or combat.

This passion is what led Keith to train numerous times with Lee Morrison of Urban Combatives and with former Marine and Special Operations Officer, J. Kelly McCann of Kembativz Brand. Recently, Keith attended Kelly McCann’s Kembativz Instructor Program where he earned the title of Assistant Instructor. His day time job is as the Safety and Security Coordinator at Berlin Brothersvalley School District. Here he has conducted Threat and Vulnerability Assessments and developed Emergency Operations and Family Reunification Plans. He has attended numerous courses in both small and large group security with the FBI, Dept. of Homeland Security, private security firms and FEMA.

Keith has participated in numerous Active Shooter Trainings with police and first responders and has conducted Active Shooter and Home Invasion seminars.

He has also trained in tactical combat casualty care and teaches the “Stop the Bleed Program.”
