See Breaking Materials.
Body parts used for breaking
Practically any rigid part of the body may be used for breaking, including the head, elbow, hand, knee, and foot. Due to Taekwondo's stress on hand and foot techniques, hands and feet are most commonly used in breaking, primarily using the ball, outer edge, and heel of the foot.
Always use one board with untested techniques. Add boards as skill and confidence increase. Do not use a technique that is beyond your skill level.
