We are all now familiar with the show of force provided by true masters in martial arts Calgary
, including karate, kung fu, muay thai, quan ki do, vietvodao, taekwondo and so on. The masters or sen says seem to be possessors of supernatural forces with which they manage to break through very tough materials such as tiles, planks, bricks, ice pieces, concrete slabs or baseball bats. But what is the secret behind their technique?

The practice of breaking through hard materials is called Tameshiwari in Japanese, being a common martial art focused on concussions. This martial art
originates from ancient times when warriors without weapons were often forced to fight warriors protected by armor. Practicing Tameshiwari was crucial in ancient styles of karate such as Okinawa.
Thousands of hours of specific training lead to a unique transformation of the body of an elite practitioner. In particular, his natural defense weapons including fists, palms, knees, elbows, shins and feet, and even fingers and forehead become prepared for burglaries. Scientific studies have shown that following repeated blows not only increase muscle strength, but also strengthen tendons and ligaments.
But the most interesting changes occur in the bones, when after successive blows to the bag, pillow or makiwara these become considerably thicker and stronger than the ones of ordinary people. In addition, the human bone has in it some conditions even higher than the hardness of the concrete.
During the specific hit masters use a specific part of the arm or leg by channeling all the energy into it. Additionally, they make maximum use of the entire human body bio mechanics. They strike with maximum force and speed, while allowing body weight to maximize the strength of the blow.
Another method which greatly facilitates the breaking of layers of tough, consists of placing the sticks between concrete slabs, bricks and tiles. Thus they break more easily as the first plates break after kick extra weight added by the force of the kick. This method can be learned by all followers of Calgary martial arts
, although few are the ones who truly manage to master it in the end.
