They retired from competition in the early 2000's to concentrate on helping their students. Mrs. Drake decided to come out of retirement in 2013 and since that time had placed first in three out of four forms divisions she had entered. In 2014 she was rated number 1 in senior forms and Japanese weapons in the NBL Evergreen conference.
Drake Dojo is family-owned and operated right here in Whatcom County, WA. Since our company opened its doors in 2006, we’ve treated every customer like they were a part of our family. Many of our students travel from all locations between Bellingham and Blaine. Other Schools may offer similar services, but ours comes with a personal touch.
