I work here and I have to say that myself and the staff have a real passion for our craft and teaching out students. To us each student is a viable individual which we personally get involved to ensure their growth as a student but also with their character. I love my students and staff. Our school has so much to offer in the way of diversity, one on one attention and methodical teaching so that our students can be the best with the skills we give them.

My 5 year old son attended a birthday party here. The activities were very organized and lots of fun! My son's favorite part was playing the ball game (not sure of the name) and kicking the board in two! We loved it so much we signed up for spring break camp after the party!

Love this place! My kids just attended their free trial class and the staff was extremely passionate and helpful. They took the time to teach each child individually. They took my kids to the side and gave them one on one and made them feel extremely welcomed on their first day!.. prices are very affordable. I'm so excited to be a Karate Mom for my kiddos!

The staff cares so much. They give our children the opportunity to become a stronger person. There is nothing not to love. My daughter has been taking classes for almost a year, and i can't wait every week. Neither can she.

This is a wonderful place where my son spends his summer and breaks! My son comes home from camp always eager to share what he learned, sports he played, and field trips he went! The value is definitely there. The administration and staff are full of energy and also use tough love when necessary-I admire that!

Taking Board Breaking to the Next Level

Taking Board Breaking to the Next Level

Board breaking can be a feared portion of martial arts training, or it can be the most enticing part. The planning of a board breaking training regimen is what determines whether you will love it or fear it. The following information is meant to bring board breaking into a whole new light as well as encourage you to take on new challenges.

The A, B, C’s of Board Breaking

Types of board breaks:

  • Single breaks – when you are using only one board. For example: front kick through one board.
  • Multiple breaks – additional boards to a break. For example: front kick through two boards.
  • Rapid breaks – continuous board breaking repeatedly; ongoing board breaking using one technique. For example: single break front kick 5 times in a row.
  • Progressive breaks – breaking with the same technique, but with a stronger board strength each time. For example: single break front kick through 3 different strengths of boards.
  • Combat breaks – breaking at several different stations with several types of breaks at each station at random, or pre-selected.

Additions to each type of break:

  • Jumps – any type of jump kick. For ex: 180’s, 360’s, 540’s, 720’s, double (two techniques at once), triple (three techniques in one jump), quadruple (4 techniques in one jump), and back flip kicks.
  • Obstacles – jumping over targets and breaking board with hand or foot.
  • Spins – any type of turn kick.
  • Blindfold – breaking while blindfolded.
  • Supported speed break – when the holder holds the board on both ends out to the side.
  • Unsupported/ speed – when the board holder only holds one side or portion of a board.
  • Insteps – kicking with the instep of the foot.
