Earlier in October Chief Instructor Russell Suthern held a board breaking masterclass at the Brighton club training hall.
Whilst not being a compulsory part of kung fu training at White Crane Martial Arts, many students like to test their skills against the boards. Accuracy of technique is much more important than strength but you still need to generate enough power as these boards are tough to smash through! We always start with the more basic punches and kicks and then as confidence grows students move on to more advanced breaks. This could be using more elaborate techniques, such as jumping kicks or twin & double techniques, or by increasing the toughness and number of boards to smash through.
There were more videos taken and any students who would like to see all their own breaks that were recorded please email Joe Jones and he’ll share yours with you.
