The Complete Art of Breaking, Bryne, Richard
1 Bryne, Richard The Complete Art of Breaking
U.S.A. Ohara Pub 1984 0897500997 / 9780897500999 Reprint Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
127 pages including b/w illustrations. Breaking is a martial arts technique that is used in competition, demonstration and testing. Breaking is an action where a martial artist uses a striking surface to break one or more objects using the skills honed in their art form. The striking surface is usually a hand or a foot, but may also be a fingertip, toe, head, elbow, knuckle, or knee. The most common object is a piece of wood, though it is also common to break bricks or cinder blocks. Breaking can be often seen in karate, taekwondo and pencak silat. Richard Byrne reveals his methods for developing speed, power, and precision in delivering decisive blows. The student is taught a progressive training program in the art of breaking, stressing both safety and technical correctness. Three essentials must be present in order for the break to occur: 1. The weakest point of the object to be broken must be hit. 2. The strike must be initiated from sufficient distance in order to gain enough speed to penetrate the object. 3. The proper part of the body must be used to avoid injury and to pinpoint the exact power/ focus area. Moderate wear.
