The Florida Tae Kwon Do Open will feature power breaking this year. It will be limited to black belts only in 2021. There will be 2 divisions, Under 18 years old and 18 years old and older. Black belts will compete against each other in their division regardless of weight.
This year the breaking material will be limited to wood. The Tournament will use one inch (1”) thick pine wood boards for power breaking. No other materials can be used. Boards will be stacked on top of cement blocks. Construction pencils will be used as spacers between the boards. To keep power breaking as fair as possible, competitors must purchase boards from The Tournament. In 2021 power breaking competitors can use any of the following techniques for breaking, Hammer Fist, Palm Strike, Elbow Strike or Straight Punch
For fairness, all competitors must use the same style board. Boards must be purchased from The Tournament for the cost of two dollars twenty-five cents ($2.50) per board. Competitors that bring their own boards will not be permitted to use those boards at the The Tournament. Competitors must provide their own holders. Table judges can assist holding if needed. Parents are permitted to assist in holding boards.
