Breaking (Kyokpa)

Breaking is an important part of exhibiting your strength and skill, and it takes extreme concentration and precision.

At NSMA you will learn how to break boards with kicks and hand strikes. As you advance through the ranks of belts, the boards will become thicker and the required movement in which to break the board will become more advanced as well. Meaning that as a white belt you will be expected to break a board with a simple front snap kick; however as a black belt you will be expected to know how to break boards using any upper level technique.
