Lori Tries Things: Breaking a One Inch Board With One Hand! [VIDEO]
Sosai Donna Harris owns the Guinness Book of World Records for the most boards broken in one minute by a woman - 156! But, can she teach Lori how to break just one...
First I have to tell you about Donna. She is the owner of Phoenix Academy of Martial Arts in Lewiston. In 2015, she held 'Breaking for Breast Cancer Awareness'. She not only got into the Guinness Book of World Records for breaking 156 boards with one hand in one minute, but she raised a lot of money for breast cancer patients here in Maine.
This year she's doing it again, and will try to break her own record! All the money raised will benefit local charity Short Folks for Hope Foundation. Founded by breast cancer survivor Kirsten Short. The money will also help Kathy Lebel from Lewiston - a mom of an 8-year-old boy fighting breast cancer and Donna's cousin.
Please come to the Lewiston Armory on November 6th 1-4 pm for 'Breaking for Breast Cancer'. Live music, Mr. Drew and His Animals TOO will be there, local vendors, crafts, games and more! It's only 5 dollars and goes to such a good cause.
I was happy to help spread the news on such a worthy cause, but I also wondered - could she teach ME to break a board? I couldn't believe how nervous I was!
I started with a practice board, moved to a 3/4 inch board - then the real test...a one inch pine board.
