I have heard that the medical profesion has said that repeated punching/striking of hard objects, like that which is done in conditioning can cause damage over time. I was once told that the conditioning of the hands was done when fighters toughened their bodies to become weapons. However, today, since people live longer, these types of disabilities surface. I think it is no different for a carpet installer, who gets bad knees from their work or a runner who develops bad knees from all the pounding. As far as breaking goes, I am not sure that if fits in the same boat as the repeated forging against hard surfaces. I would be more worried about the possible trauma from all the kicking, not the bord breaking.
Like Mr. Flynch says, no breaking for kids. No way

I don't think these three black rebreaks are worn down that much, but somewhere between 5 and 6.75 boards (and pay no attention to the wandering back hand!)

I did my first board break recently for my yellow belt test. It made me realize that I need to badly work on my targeting. I was glad I went to practice that morning because I'm friends with one of the black belts there and she offered to help prepare me for my test. That was when I first found out that I would have to break a board. Nobody told me before hand. At least she helped me mentally prepare for the board break. I can't wait to break my next board because I felt very proud of myself after completing the break.
If you're tired, kick some more. Your opponent most likely has extra kicks to spare on you.
