The Bitterroot Dragon Brigade is a youth martial arts competition team. It is composed of 50 members, 3 coaches, and around 15 chaperones. Tryouts are held every October. Any student under 18, at any rank, is eligible to try out. Practice begins in November, and tournaments commence in March. The team travels all over the Northwest to compete from March through May. At each tournament, students compete in individual events such as forms, sparring, breaking, and weapons demonstration in addition to the team form competition. The kids on this team win trophies, build confidence, become better martial artists, and create lifetime friendships.

The Dragon Brigade was founded on the premise that any talented student, regardless of economic status, should be able to travel and compete. That's why the Dragon Brigade covers the cost of team uniforms, hotel stays, and meals. It operates on a strictly volunteer basis and on a budget sourced from fundraising and donations from our generous community.

In addition to winning seven national championship titles, the Dragon Brigade has also performed at the halftime show for the Harlem Globetrotters and opened the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Walk.
