The slivers were worth it.

Hundreds of boards were punched, kicked and shattered at Kootenay Martial Arts’ annual Breaking Boards, Breaking Chains event Saturday.

Experienced and budding martial arts smashed wood to raise money for Martial Arts for Justice, a charity that raises money for the International Justice Mission.
