Practice Breaking boards and concrete blocks, even when you are over 50

I have had the pleasure of contributing to this site for several years now. I love to share information with other martial arts students and enthusists. Now I am 56 years old, and though I have lost a lot of weight, I still have a long way to go to reach my goal. I use a number of different training tools to help me improve my martial arts skills. One of the newest things I am using is an invention of a friend of mine, called the Board Buddy. The Board Buddy holds wooden boards, re-breakable boards, or even 2 1/2 inch thick concrete patio stones....without the necessity of having a training partner. Frankly my wife (also a martial artist) was tired of me hitting her fingers. I have a video of one of my training sessions loaded on you tube. I hope this training tool will help other martial artists see that even over 50, and a bit over weight, you can accomplish more than you might realize, especially if you get the right training equipment to help you.
Best Regards always,

What a great invention but I can't view it from the link you sent. Perhaps check for a typo or make a Google search suggestion. I'm sure your wife was thrilled with the Board Buddy:) It so great to hear from martial artists over 50 which will be me next year, and that your wife trains as well. Thanks for the great picture too. Jung Shin!
