Event Overview

Experience a Breakthrough!

The Breaking Barriers program is a memorable, empowering, high-energy experience that can create the confidence and connections that your new employees need. Everyone walks out of the door inspired to take action like never before! Karate experts spend years developing the skills to smash through boards and blocks with their bare hands. We take these skills and harness them into an empowering experience where participants not only break through a board, but breakthrough their personal barriers.

Everyone in the session will use a one-inch thick, twelve-inch square wood board as a metaphor for the obstacles and barriers we often put in our way to keep us from achieving our goals. Participants will then break through the board, using either their hand or their foot, as a physical metaphor for breaking through their barriers and achieving greatness in their life.

Through presenter-led discussion, participants will determine for themselves their own barriers. They’ll choose one barrier that they are committed to working on, and write that barrier on their board. Examples of barriers include fear of failure, procrastination, fear of rejection, fear of success, addictions, etc. On the other side of the board, they will write the outcomes they will achieve or gain in their life, once they have committed to breaking through the barrier. They’ll learn to trust the process as it unfolds, listen with an open mind, and take a step further than they ever thought they could. It is within this final step, beyond all doubts and limitations, that participants connect to their intrinsic power, moving from fear to trust, and from doubt to confidence.
