Board Breaking

Board breaking is a common practice in martial arts events where participants demonstrate their strength and skill by smashing their hand through a pine board. This act symbolizes breaking through barriers and overcoming obstacles with sheer determination and focus.

Using only their bare hand, participants must channel their energy and concentration into breaking the board in one swift motion. It is a powerful display of mental and physical strength, showcasing the individual's ability to push past limitations and achieve their goals.

Breaking A Board With Your Hand!

Board Breaking is a great metaphor for people to remove the blockage that is stopping them from moving to the next level. Simply put, we help to break barriers!
The board breaking exercise is a high energy activity in which we can incorporate and reinforce a message or theme.
Depending on the timescale, the delegates can write on the board something that has great meaning or importance to them. This can be a goal, barrier or achievement, giving them more focus when it comes to smashing it. Many people will keep their board as reminder of what they have achieved.  
The session starts with an introduction from the trainer, who sets the scene and reinforces any messages. A board break will be demonstrated. Next a step-by-step action is done by the group. Finishing with the whole group demonstrating a pretend board break to music. Once the instructor is happy that everyone knows the technique and there’s lots of group energy, the first person will be invited to smash the board. Also ensuring that everyone is supporting the person breaking the board.
