Keith Ford began studying martial arts in 2003 at Spirit Made Steel Dojo after his two sons, Benjamin (Shodan) and Brady (Nidan) persuaded him to give it a try. Today he is still kicking (bad pun, I know).  He has been teaching since 2007 at Spirit Made Steel Dojo, Eagle’s Wings Karate, Madison Martial Arts Academy, and now back full circle to SMS.  Sensei Keith will also play a board game with you at the drop of a hat and his favorite Japanese phrase is Tanoshinde.
