Keith views his time with LBP Stunts as a privilege he holds in high regard. He views his team members as some of his closest and dearest friends with whom he shares a bonding chemistry that he feels has always held them together to help accomplish great things, with a lot of memories to share along the way.
One of those memories he shares dates back to a test video they did for the 2007/2008 inspired indie noir action production of "Those Who Go To Hell", an unfinished low budget film by LBP Stunts, directed by writer, action director, LBP member and co-founder, Emmanuel Manzanres, now available for viewing on Youtube in four parts.
Keith admires other athletes and actors who illustrate their unique and amazing skills through tricking (or "bilang"), and also respects Mixed Martial Arts fighting as a competitive sport, seperate from Kung Fu. He also appreciates the work actors and stunt performers go through when sequences often require the use wire work:
Since then, from the constant flow of footwork and fighting techniques incorporated in Baguazhang and the various animal and element forms that make up Xingyiquan, to the soft movements of Tai Chi, Keith's kung fu training remains tantamount of his day to day lifestyle:
All in all, the experiences he carries with his Kung fu training and teaching give him peace of mind, a sense of direction, and a willingness to strive for better heatlth and wellness, while etching a hopeful, major place in history in the vast and ever-growing world of martial arts action cinema, among the likes of other aspiring independent action fiilmmakers and big name stars, most notably Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Jung Doo-hong, Sammo Hung, and his hopeful favorite to work with someday soon, Jet Li.
And through it all, he remains humbled by his notoriety, his strength through resolve, his teachings, and the traditions he shares from over thousands of years of Kung Fu training, passed through thousands of years of countless battles, and age-old masters who fought to sustain their knowledge and philosophy, and the true meaning of kung fu beyond their living years.
