We have attended Coach Keel's camps for at least 4 years in a row. Its that good and we learn new things each time. Matt is great with kids, is an excellent communicator, and has a great sense of humor.

John Sykes

My son attended one of your camps...perhaps the most significant wrestling camp he has attended. He developed not only great leg riding ability, but great balance as well; he is like a "tick" on top, kids simply can't reverse him or get him out of legs. He now dominates kids that used to beat him. He is simply a much better wrestler.

Paul Dubois

The kids really liked the camp and certainly learned a different style than what were use to wrestling
