What happens when you combine planks of wood, fists, muscle, body mechanics and hours of precision training? You get the martial art of breaking. But breaking is more than simply the destruction of boards—it’s a commitment to conditioning oneself physically, mentally and spiritually.
This martial art emphasizes the study of proper form and “forms”—as in kata, whose repetitive movements teach body alignment, power development, body mechanics and technique delivery. Combining body conditioning, strength training, personal discipline and mental focus, breaking is a martial art that can bring concrete results to abstract martial training practices.
