BOARD BREAKING/TAMASHI WARI...

So what does Tamashiwari mean? Tamashi in fact means "trial" and Tamashiwari is therefore "trial by wood".

It is claimed by styles like Kyokushinkai that Tamashiwari is a physical and psychological necessity for Karateka and that it possesses a spiritual (Zen) significance.

Tamashiwari requires great concentration and focus and is as much, if not more a mental as well as a physical effort. If one believes oneself of being capable of breaking an object then one can release one's entire physical energies into the act.

Any mental reservations, such as being concerned of hitting something hard or what if the wood doesn't break will inhibit the maximum use of power and potential of the technique.
