(Click on the individual thumbnail to see the full-size photo.)

Lesia broke using four different techniques: Right sliding side kick (first photo) Left back kick,  running jump side kick (second photo) and right back kick (third).

In the first photo Beth demonstrates a right sliding side kick.  The second photo is a right back kick. She broke two boards on each of the kicks. (I did not get the left sliding side kick.)

Beth's final kick was to break 3 boards with a running jump side kick.  I used my camera's motor drive to get the continous photos.

I did not get to take many photos of the other participants.  They moved it along at quite a brisk pace and I wanted to be certain I had film in my camera for Lesia and Beth's kicks.  Here are a few of the other participants.

The rest of the photos were taken by Alex.  Notice how his timing on this first photo was just a little better than mine.
