Here's a short film of some of our Ellerslie kids having a go at board breaking with re-breakable boards - for most it was their first ever board break!
On the one hand they learned a lot about this very cool and fun aspect of Taekwon-Do including accuracy, proper technique, distance, speed and power - but they also learned a valuable lesson about one of the tenets of Taekwon-Do: perseverance.
In the film you get to see all their successful breaks, but most of the kids had multiple attempts before they successfully broke the board. But did they give up? No way!!!
Maybe they didn't get it the first time, but they kept on trying until they had their breakthrough, with wonderful coaching and encouragement from their instructor Mrs Sonya Robinson.
