Destruction is the ultimate test of power. Power tests are conducted on pads, kick shields and / or moulded plastic boards. Breaking boards is optional and nobody is pressured into performing techniques they are unhappy with. Be reassured that we don’t have students spending hours punching buckets of gravel or sand. No one below the age of 16 is allowed to break the heavy duty re-formable boards. Juniors are only permitted to break junior boards with a parents permission.
