It depends on what I'm trying to break. For bricks, it would be the downward palm strike. For boards, I prefer hand strikes for 1 to 3 boards and foot strikes for 3 or more boards because of the power (it's not a typo - 3 boards can go either way for me). I like to use the spinning side kick to generate more power but the more boards you do the more precise your technique has to be. Thanks for the post, Brewer. I will throw a topic about this on the Body Mechanics forum for discussion as well.

When you break with a shuto or knife hand strike.Do you stike the edge of the board that you are going to break or do you prefer to go in to the center of the board?Some say that when you stike to the center your power is split in two and if you strike to the edge your power has to run along the entire lenght of the board in order for it to break.I like to power break and I always like to strike to the outside edge of the board(the one that is farthest away from me) and this way one can also utilize the forearm to complete the break.What do you think about it?

I prefer the reverse punch because I've actually had to hit people with it.

I hold a board or brick with two fingers in my left hand and hit it with my right to demonstrate to the students that which they TRULY need.

If you're guy's laying down and your breaking his ribs, that's battery! Even in self-defense [IMG][/IMG] !

Harrison Sensei says in that circumstance, act clumsy and fall hard using your knee to limit your liability if there are witnesses! I'd practice breaking that way if that's your intent...
