See this ordinary board? My 9 year old daughter kicked through it at her karate class tonight.
Huzzah! Her first board breaking.
My son also broke a board tonight. He has been doing karate for almost 7 years now, so it wasn't his first board, but it was still pretty exciting. The boards get a little bigger and thicker as the kids get bigger and more experienced, so it's always a challenge.

As we were getting ready to go to class, my daughter told me she felt a little nervous about the board-breaking test. My son said to her "Why? Board breaking is easy. Let me show you..." and he faked a move toward the kitchen cupboard. "Scream!" from mom. "Just kidding!" from son. That kid, always keeping me on my toes.
