    Brick smashing and associated sillines

    What is it with TMAs continuing love affair with tile and plank breaking? I for one completely fail to see the appeal of this practice - it just seems so profoundly pointless and dumb. Especially so if the pile is set alight? WTF? Just what is the real world application here? Destroying the neighbour´s EVIL bbq? Besides, I have a nice set of power tools, should I ever be required to demolish a brick IRL for some reason or other.

    smoetimes people are held hostage and the only way they will let you go is if you can break a brick with your head.

    Breaking: when fighting is so scary, you need to destroy intimate objects.

    Tofudog, it´s because someday, someplace, someone might ask you to break a brick just to prove Tanaka-sensei is your shidoshi.

    In our style we practice overturning mailboxes and vending machines while on a bender.

    As an exercise, I think it's worth doing a few times because it shows you if you're hitting with the right parts of your hand or not, but there's not much point in doing it all the time.

    To be manly!

    Because face it, most of these styles don't look manly on a regular basis. They use breaking **** to re-establish their manliness in a kind of mega dose multivitamin sort of way.

    I like to break bricks and when I have a big pile of broken ones I use them as a pedestal to display Chi balls.
