Martial artists try for world record

On Saturday, from 10-11 a.m., Northwest Martial Arts will be at Lampe Park in Gardnerville to join thousands of other martial artists across the United States who will be attempting to break a world record for the most breaks executed in one hour simultaneously across the country. They will also be raising money for Project Action to fight juvenile crime and keep children out of gangs.

The Project Action Foundation is a national award-winning children's charity whose mission is to prevent juvenile crime by providing disadvantaged and "at-risk" children the opportunity to become involved in physical and cultural arts programs, working with martial arts, dance and gymnastics schools.

The current world record was set in May 2005 and stands at 95,501 breaks performed in one hour. Northwest Martial Arts will be representing Carson Valley during this event.
