At JS-International we’ve worked with hundreds of organisations and professionals internationally and are passionate about creating life changing events and exercises. Arrow Breaking is one of these life changing exercises and is the practice of placing the point of a wooden arrow in the sterna notch of your throat and then mastering your focus to first bend then entirely snap the shaft of the arrow in half – without any injury to yourself.
What’s the purpose?
Arrow breaking is one of the most powerful demonstrations of the mind over primal instinct and is about using mental control techniques that we teach you. We help you to break through barriers that you have created in your life which can be broken just as effectively once you find you are more powerful than the fear you hold.
What is rebar bending?
Steel rebar bending developed out of the arrow break and was introduced in the early 90's. We use a 6'8" / 2 meter long, 5/8" / 10mm diameter steel reinforcement bar that is used for reinforcing concrete.
What's the purpose?
Rebar bending is an excellent exercise to align group members with each other and the collective. The rebar bend teaches commitment, cooperation, team-work, following through and how to effectively channel one's own creative power for lasting results.
Both the arrow break and the rebar bend can easily be incorporated into larger events as one of the main exercises, or as a two to three hour workshop in their own right, especially tailored to your group's needs and desires.
