How to remove focus from JFileChooser

I have a JPanel on which a JFileChooser is added.
Now the focus (cursor) is always set to TextBox, which contains the file we choose from file chooser.

Now the problem is, I have to capture a key on this panel.
But as the cursor always on the text box of JFileChooser, the key pressed event is not fired.
If i remove the JFileChooser, the keyPressed event is fired.

How to fire a keyPressed event when JFileChooser is there on the panel, and i press a key.

Is there any way to remove focus from the text box?
