Product Description
    • High strength plastic construction allows the boards to be broken over 1000 times while requiring the same amount of force as on the first break
    • Rubber palm-pad provides cushioning for the holder
    • The difficulty increases from white belt up to black belt
    • Choose from seven different colors and difficulty levels. Each color represents an increasing level of difficulty beginning with white as the easiest and ending with black and the most difficult (following the traditional belt rank system.)

    These boards were tested by dropping steel balls of increasing weights on standard breaking boards. The weight required to break a board of the same width varied widely from board to board. An average was taken and the boards were developed to break at that point.

    And they do, at the first break and the one thousandth, these boards take the same force to break.

    All the boards are stackable for multiple-board breaks. The boards have padding on the back, so that if someone is holiding the board for the break it is more comfortable for them.

Can you give me the equivalent wood thickness for each re-breakable board color? I cannot find this information anywhere. Thank you.

Hi Snytcher. We don't have these boards handy anymore. If we do get them back into restock, each color will have a thickness-equivalence next to them in the dropdown menu. As of right now though, we do not have a restock date for them.

Which boards to buy?

I run a college karate club and was planning to buy 3 boards. We do not practice breaking boards a lot but I thought it would be nice to buy some. I was thinking of getting the standard 1 inch board. Any advice on which beginner and advanced boards to buy?

Hi Shelley. The 1" is a good choice, but I would also recommend getting one yellow one as well just in case you have someone afraid of trying. Yellow is easy, but it can help people get over the fear hurdle. As for advanced, I don't think you'll need more than brown.

That depends on how thick you consider a normal board to be. Each rebreakable board coincides with different thicknesses.

These boards are very good

I use these boards all the time. My school uses yellows, greens and blacks for local tournaments but only because wood just gets too expensive for some of the competitors. These boards break more consistently at a given force than the variability of wood. I am up to 4 blacks and my son is at 2 blacks for side kicks. Another commentor is correct in that the board equivalent listed is for 10x12x1" pine boards. These boards are good for several thousand breaks but do start going lower than rated number of boards after that. For an individual that usually isn't a problem but for a school - keep that in mind.

Does anyone think my son,,,,, an eleven year old 1st degree black-belt could break a brown? He is breaking brown at his studio but they are not these boards. I am wondering to buy him blue OR brown? but I dont think you know this kids strength. (buy the way bron is "like butter" for him.)

I'd recommend erring on the side of caution here. Injuries and excessive impact on the developing hands/joints of an 11 year old can have detrimental repercussions later in life.

Minimize the amount of breaking and the difficulties in those breaks as they are unnecessary in the development of martial art skill.

Yes - definitely. My son is 10 and is working to consistently break 2 blacks on first try with standing side kick (about 75% of the time currently).

Also I agree with okien108 - children shouldn't be doing punch breaks. I would limit them to knife-hand breaking and not too often at that either. With kicking you can be a bit more lax.

Great Board!

Our 5-year-old is a breaking maniac! We bought him some cheaper boards a while back and within a week, the boards had lost their tension and he could break them with a finger. This board has held up to constant breaking very well. In fact, the blue board is a little too tough for my son...it takes him at least 2 hits to break it. The quality of the board it fabulous.

Excellent quality - tougher than you think

These boards are extremely well made, and surprisingly tough to break. Assume that the dimensions provided are for unfinished wood, so a 1" KDelite board is much harder to break than a standards 3/4" pine board. The side padding is great for the holders as well.

If you can break the Black board, you can break a concrete block.

Great Boards!

I bought the green board through your website and the orange board at our dojo (before knowing about your site). The boards are the same brand and the same quality, yet the board I bought through your website was $30 less than at our dojo (our dojo is charging $95 per board!). As soon as we are ready to move on to more advanced boards, I will be ordering from you again. Thank you for providing the same quality boards at a much more reasonable price!!! We are very happy!

It would be easy to give it only four stars because of the high price, but this board is worth every penny and more. I've seen way too many ProForce boards die with heavy use, and was determined not to get one of those. I decided to gamble on one of these, and am extremely happy that I did. The construction is rock-solid, and I can already tell that I'll die before this board does. Absurdly happy with this purchase, and I'll most likely get a few more.

Yellow is a Great Starter board

I love these rebreakable boards as they are great training tools. The yellow board specifically is pretty good although it is very easy to break, since it does not even match up to one full board's strength. My students easily break this board with the proper guidance and instruction. A great starter board for those just getting into breaking. However, you may also want to buy the Green or Blue board, as students may quickly progress in their board breaking skill.

Best Re-Breakable Boards on the Market!!

I've been practicing martial arts for almost nineteen years and been using re-breakable board for most of that time. I, like most people I'm sure, used the typical re-breakable board that had a groove that would slide back together. This groove would become deformed and therefore loose over time, especially in the more advanced boards. These board however are designed without the groove. They are designed to be pressed back together and not slide. This prevents them from becoming fatigued over time and therefore, they really do retain a constant breaking strength.

Newtons & Foot Pounds

I've been breaking these boards in the Tae Kwon Do academy I joined, and I must say they are versatile and useful. I am curious as to how much force I'm actually using to break the boards, how many pounds of force does it take to break the boards.

Can I get a measure of the wieght it takes to break a board? If not, I'll be getting some of my own and doing some experiments (background in Physics here).

I just started taking Shoto-Jistu last month and i find these boards to be absolutely amazing! I have ordered them yet but they are the exact same boards. They break just like real boards and they put back together extremely easy!! I plan on buying two this month..they are a bit pricy though, but i definitely believe they are worth it!

Great Boards!!!!!

These are awesome. I got these to practice for my daughter and I to practice for our first board breaks. They are very realistic. My daughter and I both love breaking and rebreaking them. I bought the yellow one for my 5 yr old (very small 5 yr old)and took her a few tries to figure it out. I broke the green one with ease. These are great for practice. I am ready to buy the rest of them!!!!

My 5 year old and I are testing for green belt at the end of this week. I ordered a yellow board and a green board. I have broken the green board with ease using palm and elbow strikes, as well as, side kick. This was my very first attempt at board breaking. I am having a lot of fun so far. I can't wait to order more!!!

board dimensions

At our studio we must break a pine board that is 12in x 12in x 1 inch thick. My son needs to practice board breaking he is 9 and will be testing for black belt. I am trying to find a board that is challenging yet realistic to what he is required to do. I am looking at the rebreakable for brown, what does 1.75 boards mean? Is this equivalant to a board that is 1.75 inches thick? Which color do you recommend for the dimensions I listed above? Thanks!

Jen - if you are looking for a 1 inch thick board you would want the green belt option. "1.75" does indeed mean 1.75 inches thick, but don't bethrown by the color gradings - it's not necessary for all brown belts to break the brown belt board, it's just a clever way to name them.

If I could make a suggestion: try to refrain from having your son do breaking at such a young age. Children's bones are in a state of development at that point and aren't adequately hardened to withstand that kind of punishment. If breaking is required for black belt, just have him wait for a few more years to achieve it. Black belt will also mean more to him when he is old enough to appreciate all the implications that come with having a black belt.

Actually I think they have it labeled incorrectly on here. The most common board size broken is 10 inches by 12 inches and one inch thick. The green board sold here has the same break tension of a 10"x12"x1" board. A white board has about a quarter of that tension. If he needs to break a 12"x12" I would recommend getting a couple. Like a brown and a black. It's a wee bit spendy, but you have to also remember that all breaks are not considered equal, especially at your sons age. Okiken108 is definitely right. Just because it might be safe for him to do elbow strikes or kicks on a tougher board (like the black one here) doesn't mean he should often be doing things like punches, for instance. For that, pick up an easier board so he can still practice breaking with those techniques safely.

Find the proper board

How do you determine which board is the proper board for your rank/age/size? We are now breaking boards for testing at the 3rd level of each color belt. What color would a 3rd level Green belt (this will be my 4th testing - I know belt colors sometimes vary)?

Thank you,

Sheri - if you look at the pull down menu where the boards are listed above you'll notice each board has a color rank associated with it. These are our general recommendations for what you might use at your level. If you are green, it might be a good idea to start with the 1" board. Once that becomes too easy you can jump up to the blue or brown.

Excellent Quality

While I love this product, I didn't realize there was such a slight gradual strength between the boards. I bought the white and yellow for my kids, but they are very similar, with the yellow being maybe 5% harder to break. If I could do it again, I would purchase every other color board... white (skip yellow), orange (skip green), etc. Still, this is a lot of fun and easy to reassemble. Highly recommended.

I just ordered 3 of these boards for my son who is teaching a karate class with kids ranging from 7 y/o - 14 y/o and 3 adults. I got the yellow for the kids - (the younger ones took a couple of tries), and the green one (equivalent to a full board) and brown one (1.75 boards) for the older ones. The students absolutely LOVE these boards. It was a great investment as these boards are a wonderful tool.

I ordered the black board right after I tried it out at my karate school and it's the best money I ever spent and I would rather get these boards from karate depot than century because it's cheaper here. When I first got the board it was really hard but after some training and focus I can break 2 black boards so very soon I'll get the whole series so that me and my friend can try to brake them all at once. Just one thing though if you do try to brake any more than 2 boards you will need a clamp, because the boards tend to bounce a lot

I got the black kind. It breaks like about 2 pine boards for me, close enough to the 2.25 per the specs, my instructor broke it too and said about 1.5. The padded sides are good for the holder. The grooves for tie-down in a break box are a nice touch. It is light so it won't add much to the karate bag but this makes it too light for a speed break (board flying or held by one edge). It's made from soft plastic so the break has a bit soft feel not a sharp snap like wood or rebreakables from hard plastic.

I ordered the white, yellow and orange Karate boards and I love them. It is a lot of fun to break things and NOT get arrested or do time in jail. My wife thinks I am crazy but I am ordering the other 4 ASAP, so that I have ALL 7. I will enjoy breaking them for MANY years to come!

Great re-breakable boards!

Great re-breakable board! I love the rubber hand supports, they make holding the board MUCH easier in any position. Am planning on buying more levels of board. Note that natural board purists may be dismayed by the unrealisticness of the rubber holding surface, but they're great for practice and help your holder learn to get their fingers out of the way. Highly recommended!

Expensive but worth the price

We have used these rebreakable boards from Century for two years, and they are a great improvement over the much heavier solid nylon rebreakable boards that they replaced. We use Century boards with different resistance in various combinations for our breaking standards at promotion tests. The boards' light weight makes them easier to hold, and they are also easier on hands and feet because they flex like wood boards even when they don't break completely. The initial cost has been offset by their durability, and they seem to retain their breaking resistance even after extended use. I recommend them as a viable alternative to wood boards for breaking training.
