In General Breaking the Board Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Wow - what an awesome feeling to break that piece of wood & not do it in anger! After viewing the Broken Boards hanging along the wall at the Dojo, I couldn't wait until it was my turn to try. I didn't think it would come so soon! Figured I had to wait a few more months. Last night, Sensei brought out the practice boards and let us try them. I started out with a .5, then .75 then 1 and then 1.50. Broke every one of them! Then the real boards came out. There are 3 females in my class including me and I got nominated to be the first one to try it. Nervous, as the guys were watching....(I guess to see if a woman could do it!) I took several calming breathes, listened to Sensei Bob give me instructions and WHAM! It split in two! One hard Hammer Fist and it was done! Absolute Exhilaration! I can't wait to get my hands on some more boards!

Congrats on breaking the boards...although can't say I ever did that in an aikido class.... ....I broke one once at a motivational conference....but that is another story.... What kind of aikido do you train that you are breaking boards?
