Snap! The sound of wood splitting into two brings great satisfaction especially when it is your bare hands that did it.
Being able to break things doesn’t take great genius. Drop a plate and it will smash into smithereens. When it comes to striking a break-board (specially designed board used by martial artists to practice technique) there is method to the madness. Before I go on to reveal the secret, I will say – don’t try this at home.
To break wood focus on hitting a point behind it. Go through the target. The moral of the story is when you’re aiming for something, go beyond your goal. It’s a bit like the saying, “Reach for the moon, if you miss it you will land in the stars”.
