These are black belts. Black belts obviously from a McDojo. It’s not the fault of the students. They signed up and I am positive they have given their best. This joke lies squarely on the shoulders of the Instructor and his/her school. These students are gold belt level at best. It’s sad, because these students, are wearing black belts and possess a false sense of security and probably have a false level of confidence. Meaning, they might get into it with someone that will hand them their collective butts. I would guess sixty percent of traditional martial arts studios in the USA are producing this poor quality. It’s an affront to all.
Lastly, breaking boards is quite simply a foolish endeavor that has no meaning and no value. None. There is nothing to be learned nor gained from breaking a board.
