Instructors at Zanshin Karate in Hendre School decided to do something different for this years sponsored event, they decided to beat the clock breaking wooden boards.
The aim was to break 24 inches of wood in 60 seconds.
As they had never attempted the feat before, they were unsure how much time to give themselves so they decided that 2.5 seconds per board was manageable. The end result surprised everyone present as they broke 24 inches in 37 seconds!
The video above shows the event in full. Next time they plan to knock at least 7 seconds off their time and do it in under 30 seconds.
