LASZLO HUVE: On behalf of Expert Village,
my name is Laszlo Huve, here in New York City, Camp Undefeated. Today, we’ll try to break
a board. Our next break is a power break. This is usually more than two or three or
four boards. You have two choices: you could use spacers or you could do–you have it over
each other. Usually, with the boards, because they are made out of wood, they bend. So,
it’s very important to go through the break; otherwise, the flexibility of the board makes
you to break the lower boards or the top boards but not all of them together. So you have
to be able to go through with the break. Positioning of the body, again, is very important. It’s
a low walking stance or half stance. Your hip is positioned in the same line with the
board. The shoulder is in position, in the same line with the board. My hitting hand,
my knife hand strike, has to be able to go as low as possible, preferably touching the
floor. So my legs has to be able to let me down, go through and break the boards. Very
important to breathe. Usually people use kiai or a fast exhale of the oxygen out of the
lungs to be able to go through. So let’s strike it down. My right hand will go through the
board, breaking the boards.
