Who We Are

Cape Fear Martial Arts has been serving Wilmington since September of 1997. During that time we have trained thousands of students of all ages. Our program is designed to challenge our students to improve both mentally (focus, discipline, confidence) and physically (improved strength, speed and flexibility).

We pride ourselves on developing talented martial artists with real world ready skill sets as well as the mind set for success.

All of our Instructors are adults who have earned their Black Belts within our walls. They also have been certified as instructors by going through considerable training and testing on teaching techniques, safety, as well as how to teach special needs students.

Cape Fear Martial Arts as well as all the Instructors who teach here are certified by the United States Korean Martial Arts Federation. The USKMAF is an internationally recognized Hapkido Federation under the leadership of Grandmaster JR West.

Kevin Deane is the Head Instructor and Owner of Cape Fear Martial Arts.

He holds rank of 3rd Dan in Hapkido and 1st Dan in Taekwondo. Kevin began his training in Hapkido in January of 2001 under the training of Instructors Ed Wrenn and Maurice Murphy. In 2004 Kevin became a full-time Instructor as well as co-owner of Cape Fear Martial Arts and has been an everyday instructor of Hapkido since then. Always looking to improve in Hapkido, Kevin began training under Master Joe Borucki and his Instructor Grandmaster JR West in 2009.

Master Borucki started his formal training in Hapkido in February 1985, and has trained full time ever since. He has also trained in Tae Kwon Do, Yudo (Judo), Aikido, Brazilian Ju Jitsu and various other martial arts styles. He currently holds the rank of Sixth Degree Black Belt in Hapkido, under the United States Korean Martial Arts Federation and Grandmaster J. R. West, Ninth Degree Black Belt.

Master West received his training while serving with the elite Korean Tiger Division (Special Forces) during his fifty-plus month tour in Vietnam. He earned his Black Belt in 1967 and has been teaching martial arts ever since.
