Board Breaking Seminars
Breakthrough Coaching International’s Breaking Barriers” Board Breaking Seminar: Each participant gets the opportunity to create their own “breakthrough” board breaking experience by overcoming self-imposed limitations and breaking a board with their bare hand.
- You don’t have to be a karate expert to do this.
- Karate experts spend years developing the skills to smash through boards and blocks with their bare hands. But at our most popular seminar, adults and adolescents can learn and achieve that skill in a very short time frame, typically an hour.
Why would teams learn to break boards?
– The physical experience of breaking through a board – of achieving what looks impossible – translates into the breaking of other types of real-world barriers.
– Athletes can break through the mental blocks that hold them back from achieving that final goal, and move towards improved physical performance and success in their sport.
– Company team members can apply the mental skill to break through unproductive patterns and shift them to empowering one’s, building camaraderie within the first few minutes. Board breaking can be incorporated into a stand-alone seminar, or into a sales kick-off meeting, corporate retreat, lunch and learn, or a conference breakout session.
– Students gain confidence to overcome obstacles and move to the next level. The knowledge that they can break through boards prepares them to face challenges at school and those they’ll face later in life. Students will learn their true power, and how they can use their mindset to break through obstacles and challenges. Our breakthrough “Breaking Barriers” board breaking is customized for your needs. It is a powerful experience acknowledging and shutting down limiting mindsets like “I can’t” to empowering a positive programming that says “Yes I can!”
Board breaking enables participants to gain that power in a safe and supportive environment, and teaches them to use that power to identify and break through patterns and beliefs that no longer serve them.
Plus, those participants seeing an event greater challenge can move up to concrete block breaking.

Recovery Through Experiential Transformation
We Specialize in Breakthroughs
Breakthrough Coaching International offers powerful experiential seminars in a safe and supportive environment, where participants learn how powerful they truly are. Whether it’s alcohol or other drugs… or any of a myriad of other self-destructive patterns… participants learn to recognize the strength within to move beyond their fears. To overcome their patterns and addictions. And, thus empowered, they achieve.
In the seminar, each participant will be guided to identify self-limiting beliefs that may be inhibiting success and create new empowering beliefs. There will be opportunities for physical/mental/emotional breakthroughs, helping the client move from victim to victor and build confidence and self-esteem. No one is pressured; each participant makes his or her own decision as to how much or how little they wish to participate. We do encourage participants to move beyond their comfort zone within a safe and supportive environment, since this is where growth occurs, and to look for opportunities to expand their comfort zones in their daily life.
Build your own seminar.
You choose the activities for your seminar from a broad menu of empowerment tools; Breakthrough Coaching International workshops are tailored to your specific needs and time frame. As with all of our Breakthrough Coaching International workshops, participation is voluntary, since only by choosing to participate will an attendee grow. Very few decline.

Board Breaking and Concrete Block Breaking
Participants learn to harness their personal power by doing the “impossible” – breaking a board or concrete block with their bare hand. The board and block-breaking exercise is particularly suited for helping participants break through their self-defeating/ limiting beliefs. This activity gives them the physical experience of breakthrough.
In this exercise, target arrows (not hunting arrows) are used to help people break through into a new awareness of where they want to be in life. One cannot take part in an arrow break and not gain a higher expectation of what is possible in life.
Placing the tip of a cedar arrow against the hollow of the throat, each participant will learn to clarify their goals and focus their energy as they walk directly into the arrow. As the arrow shatters, participants experience breaking through self-limiting barriers and fears.
Steel Rebar Bending
Two individuals bend a steel rebar (yes, the kind used in concrete reinforcement) strategically placed in a very vulnerable location on the neck. This exercise teaches honoring one’s commitment, cooperation and teamwork. It demonstrates that together we can access that same power if we learn to trust one another.
Broken Glass Walking
This Zen exercise totally focuses you in the moment. Until recently, glass-walking was the exclusive domain of mystics and fakirs, versed in the ancient disciplines of yoga and the martial arts. The methods were hidden from prying eyes to promote magical myths about these initiated few. When a person manages to pay attention 100% on what he/she is experiencing, no part of our mind can wander off: We become the experience itself.
As dark begins to fall, participants build a fire circle as a means to offer healing and to transform energy. Each person brings something to burn that they would like to rid of their past or create for the future. They may bring pictures, drawings, or intentions written on a piece of paper for the past or the newness. If board breaking is included in this seminar, participants can add their boards to the fire.
No one is obligated to speak during the fire ceremony. Anyone can participate without stating what they are releasing or calling forth. The things we address from our past or call into our future can be shared with the group or kept to ourselves as we go through the fire ceremony.
The firewalk is a powerful tool designed to help transform fear and to inspire people to do things they initially didn’t think possible. It teaches a valuable lesson about the power of the mind and the effect that thoughts and beliefs have on our experience of reality. It is a practical way of confirming our instincts and validating our intuition.
Firewalking provides an unforgettable visual image to accompany our thoughts and beliefs, and shows us the vastness of the human potential. Most importantly, firewalking helps us to shift the energy of fear. As participants learn to dance with the fire in the presence of fear, they learn to deal successfully with fear whenever it arises, learning to transform fearful situations as opportunities for growth, and to transform fear itself into a powerful ally.
If we can empower hundreds to walk on burning hot coals, we can empower your clients to stand on their own two feet

History of Fire Walking
The ancient art of fire walking is relatively unknown in our Western culture with many people seeing it for the first time on television shows like Survivor and MTV’s Road Rules.
Although fire walking is relatively new to us, cultures all over the world have practiced firewalking and fire dancing rituals since pre-recorded history. Firewalking and prayer are two of the oldest rituals on the planet. There is even reference to firewalking in the bible: Proverbs 6:28: ‘Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned’; and Isaiah 43:2: ‘When thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned’.
Romans were exempted from paying taxes if they could demonstrate their ability to walk on fire without burning. Kung bushmen in Africa fire dance as a powerful healing ritual for their tribe. Their ceremony not only includes fire walking, but also rolling on the fire. The Greek Anastenarides dance on hot coals for hours to honor Saint Constantine and Saint Helen. The Kahunas of Hawaii let molten lava harden just enough to hold their weight before walking on it. In Bali, fire dancing is the coming of age ritual for seven-year-old girls.
Fire immunity and fire walking rituals have been practiced in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burma, China, Egypt, Fiji, Greece, Haiti, Hawaii, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tibet, Trinidad, South Africa, and more.
So what do all these ancient people and cultures know about firewalking that we don’t?
They have turned their reverence of fire into ceremonies and rituals to enhance their well-being and communities. And they understand that the benefits of fire walking clearly outweigh the risks.
