About us.

Opened in 1999 by head instructor Adette Rice, Driftwood Martial Arts bears the distinction of being one of the first full time, professional, Canadian martial arts studio to be opened by and run solely by a female instructor.

Kyoshi Rice has developed and implemented several highly successful programs into the curriculum and community including our KidSafe Youth Karate program, Freedom From Fear Women’s Self Protection and her own WeeKick KinderKarate program which began in 2008.

We strive to offer all of our students a safe learning environment where they can become strong both physically and mentally.
