Taekwondo student tries his hardest to break board

You know the saying. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

A junior Taekwondo student, under the guidance of his teacher, was presented with a challenge: break a board. He's on the right path - and eventually gets there - but it takes a couple tries. At first he jumps on the board with both feet. He kicks the board off the stand and even tries to use his hands.

But his persistence pays off! With one swift kick (after about a dozen tries) he splits the board in two to the delight of his teacher and onlookers. Success! He earns what may be his first belt, and what may have been his first congratulatory handshake. Check out the video:
