This is the first book solely devoted to the art and technique of breaking. Jack Hibbard, an experienced karate instructor and former Green Beret, explains clearly and systematically how to break boards, bricks, and other objects, and discusses practical applications for self-defense. Over 500 outstanding photographs and sketches show the breaks themselves and how to execute them in a simple, step-step manner. Of the three categories in karate (fighting, kata, and breaking), breaking alone remains constant in all styles. Thus, though students may fight and do kata differently in their respective schools, all can use this text to master breaking. The author begins with the basics and examines the three principles of speed, power, and penetration. He explains the importance of focus, conditioning the body, setting and holding objects for breaking, breath control, and many other vital aspects of the art. Hand, kicking, flying, and combination breaking techniques are discussed in detail. The book ends with instructions for impressive demonstration techniques. 1.
