2022 UPDATE

Save the Date - August 13th, 2022

We are excited to Announce that for 2022 we are BACK, to a full caliber event! Thank you to everyone who supported us in 2021 as we brought back SAFE, In-Person Martial Arts Competition!

Safety will continue to be our number one priority moving forward, acknowledging that the pandemic is not over, and that the community, its rules and dangers, are changing week to week.

As we work towards bringing you the North East Open, please be patient with us, as we can expect smaller participation as we all work to rebuild. What you can count on is our continued commitment to organization, fairness and most importantly, camaraderie! 

 

Descriptions of event

 

This event is an Official Competitive Event Sanctioned & Governed by the United States Breaking Association/World Breaking Association

©2017, USBA/WBA all rights reserved

Rules:

1.Materials and Spacers: Boards must be purchased on site from Supply Committee. Carpenter pencil spacers will be provided.

2.Techniques:  Hand technique only (palm, knife-hand or chop, hammer fist, etc.). Technique must be a downward strike.

3.Weight divisions: See “General: Divisions” above.

4.Stations: One station will be used. Boards will be set on a block base. Competitors may set up as many boards as they wish. Competitors will be required to ensure the safety of fellow competitors and spectators as outlined in “General: Safety” above.

5.One Strike Only! Competitor has one attempt to break the boards.

6.Time Limits: Competitor will have a maximum of 5 minutes to set up. Time starts when the competitor signals he/she is ready, time stops when the competitor signals to the ring coordinator that his/her set-up is complete. Additional time will be counted if a set-up is to be significantly altered as determined by the ring coordinator. A deduction of 1 board will be taken off the competitor’s total break for every 15 seconds over the allotted time. Deductions will begin after the 5-minute mark.

7.Judging: Judges will count the number of boards broken to determine the winner. The competitor who breaks the most (or, in the event of a tie, has the highest percentage broken) is the winner.

Ties: In the event of a tie, the winner will be decided by the highest percentage broken. Example:     Competitor “A” breaks 10 out of 10; competitor “B” breaks 10 out of 12. Competitor “A” broke at 100%; competitor “B” broke at 83%. Competitor “A” is the winner. If more than one competitor has the same percentage broken after their initial break, there will be a break off to determine the winner. If there is a tie created by more than one competitor breaking 100% of their stack (example: 2 competitors break 10 out of 10), the competitor that broke the amount first is the winner.
