How To Really Break Boards With Your Head Really Neat!-音羽かなで

Martial-Arts Okay, we need a warning, like check with a doctor before you do this. Or maybe a psychiatrist. Or maybe just make sure you’ve backed up your brains on hard drive. Back in 1967, I had just start Kenpo Karate, one of the Tracy Brothers offshoot branches, and the head instructor decided to put on a breaking seminar. I don’t know what he was thinking, maybe he had a side business selling insurance or something. At any rate, the potential for disaster was looming. We entered the dojo and stacks of pine boards were waiting for us. As a group we were taught the theory of focusing, of punching through, and so on, and we were all excited. Then we started breaking the boards, one at a time, as the head instructor watched. One of the attendees, a nice guy by the name of Jeff, asked if it was possible to break a board using just the head. The head instructor’s answer was in the affirmative, but he cautioned that it shouldn’t be attempted until one had trained extensively. We then went into another room to break boards, and no one noticed that Jeff had not .e with us. We were in group discussion, and suddenly there was a tremendous wacking sound. It was such a sickly sound that we all stopped what we were doing and stared at the entrance to the other room. The other room, where the sound came from, where Jeff had stayed to do whatever it was he intended on doing. Suddenly, Jeff stepped through the doorway, he was standing a bit crooked, and the look in his eyes was like little birdies whistling. We all held our breaths as Jeff crossed the room, he walked tilted, and the birdies winged around his head in a neat, little circling pattern. Jeff plonked into a seated zen position, and the head instructor, with an eye on Jeff, continued his speechifying. Now, if you’re going to break a board with your head, and I don’t care if you study Goju or Kyokushinkai or Hung Gar or whatever, work up to it. Start with thin boards, even an eighth of an inch, through a quarter, through 3/8s, and so on. Heck, even wear a football helmet the first few times, the potential for injury is that great. Oh, and at the end of that seminar that I was at? Jeff came up to the head instructor after it was all over and asked, is it possible to break a board with your head. Maybe he should have worked on having the hardest punch instead of just a hard head! About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
