West Winds Martial Arts Academy

Hi, I’m Hanshi Corey Boren, Head and Master Instructor of West Winds Martial Arts Academy…

I specialize in two things – I teach adults and children how to live happy, healthy and meaningful lives while teaching them how to keep safe from anyone who would threaten them.

I teach my students how to lead a good life of purpose through a unique character development system and effective self-defense through my practical personal protection systems; I teach my students to live a life worth protecting.

Programs & Class Schedule

West Winds Martial Arts Academy and The International KenAikiJutsuRyu Federation (IKJF) is dedicated to the perpetuation of American Kenpo, Shaolin Kenpo Kemp Kido Kan, Kajukenbo and various other arts (such as aikido ju jistu Hopkido ) all make up the Art of KenAikiRyuJutsu. Ancient dictates have always considered the Martial Way as a spiritual path, conjoined with a physical protective system to protect and manifest one's life.

In the establishment of West Winds Martial Arts Academy and the IKJF, many things were considered, primarily the perpetuation and evolution of Kenpo. We also wanted to establish a network of loyal people who could exchange many different skills besides those on a Martial Arts level.
West Winds Martial Arts Academy was created to serve the need to expand dimensionally in Kenpo without the politics and established regimes. We are a collective body of individuals or separate organizations that maintain their right to control their destiny and freedom of choice. The recognition of that need of choice was the very basis of the formation of this Federation.
West Winds Martial Arts Academy is dedicated to the evolution of the Kenpo systems and not the evolution of bureaucracy. The proliferation of rank attained from favor or commercial interest is at the heart, we believe, of the decline of many Martial Arts. The maintenance of ongoing exploration of the concepts and principles of our Art coupled with extensive work on the mats and most importantly in the real world, will assure the quality and depth of IKJF.
The IKJF is an open federation that welcomes all who wish to pursue Kenpo and is an independent, non-political entity that is based upon Truth and Clarity.

These qualities also help with their participation and contribution in the classroom. Martial Arts is also highly recommended by doctors for children and adults with ADD or ADHD

Other Class we offer

Defense Fitness:
This is a complete system that is bases on the structure of champion martial arts. What this means is the Defense Fitness will give you a total body work out of 5-5 minutes Rounds. Key elements focused on, are endurance strength, power and core. This is accomplished through 5 rounds of fitness system. The rounds are broken up into the following categories: Warm up drills, coordination, self-defense, upper and lower body conditioning, combo rounds and cool down/core.
The best part is that it is designed to cater to people at all levels of fitness. An individual can customize their workout by adjusting their intensity level to best suit their personal fitness goals. Each 5 minute round incorporates both aerobic and anaerobic exercises that will help maximize not only burning fat but also gaining muscle. This system of training allows the participant to burn more calories while increasing ones metabolism, flexibility and awareness.
This award winning course was designed by Master instructor Corey Boren for females of all ages and walks of life much like other self defense course this one is more based on reality and practicality.

Each class differs in the exact information, but the general outline is the same. During the first part of the class the instructor will warm up the class with exercise for basic fitness, talk about awareness, and learn practical self defense moves during your warm-up. Then you'll learn some self-defense techniques that can help you avoid an assault. Finally, the last half of the class will focus on physical self-defense techniques and work with advanced students and assistant instructors. During this part you'll learn how to get out of different types of grabs, perform strikes and kicks, and techniques for fighting on the ground, and defending yourself.

A program designed to help kids learn key principles of life while learning self defense. Your child will learn things such as
• Respect: Through Martial Arts' philosophy and customs, the student learns to build superior relationships based on respect and friendship.
• Discipline: Through Martial Arts' training, the student develops self motivation and perseverance.
• Goal Setting: Goal setting is a necessary road map for a successful life. It was once said, "On the road towards Black Belt the student gains the experience and feeling of success by earning progressively higher belt ranks."
• Leadership: As they work with their fellow students, they will develop communication skills. All students participate in our Leadership Training Program
(Ages 5-12 years of age)
