I'm not sure what size the board was, but the standard board is 12in by 12in by 1in. It is better to have two holders on the board standing in a front stance (1 shoulder wide 2 shoulder length, 70-80% of there wieght on the front leg) also you want to stike into the grain. you can tell by the lines in the side of the board. Also have your holders turn thier head to the side so they don't get splinters in face.

Board breaking is a complete waste of time. Spend your time sparring and running technique and conditioning drills instead. When was the last time a board attacked someone or threatened to kick some ass? You want to impress chicks, get a haircut and buy a nice shirt, board breaking ain't gonna do squat for you.

First get a good holder....one that does not ride the punch so to speak, he will get you injured.
Next know how to throw a punch using only your big knuckle. With this as the main focus to a target, the energy that transpire from you to the knuckle to the board will be more focuse and will split the board, opposed to hitting the surface with the whole hand, causing the push....
but more importantly snap your punch that will add to the focused energy....
if you split the board nice and clean you transfered your energy well...
if you break the board into various pieces, your energy was all over the place...
now, if you grab the stone out of my hand, you will have learned.
