Arrow Break

It takes a split second to break an arrow with your throat, but to be bold enough to open up one of the most vulnerable and private areas of your body in that way, and completely break through the fear attached, leaves you feeling exhilarated and unstoppable.

Event Overview

Exciting. Personal. Transformational.

At TeamBonding we’ve worked with hundreds of organizations and professionals internationally and are passionate about creating life-changing events and exercises. Arrow Breaking is one of these life-changing exercises.  One end of the arrow is placed at the soft, supple part of your throat and the goal is for you to bend and then snap the arrow in half without any injury to yourself in the process.

This team building exercise for adults is one your team won’t want to miss – the exclusive and exciting Arrow Break program! We are all tested on the road to success, and the best way to get through the challenges we face is through unwavering commitment. It is a known fact that commitment is fundamental to almost all notable human achievements. Committed employees bring added value to their organization through their determination, proactive support, high productivity and an awareness of quality. Commitment is fundamental to management, attendance, and loyalty – all of which adds to a company’s success. During this team building exercise for adults, participants will work closely in pairs. They must trust and rely on each other to work through their vulnerabilities and get to a place of 100% commitment.

TeamBonding’s Arrow Break program allows your teams to gain this lifelong lesson in a powerful and memorable way.
