Can you really punch through wood?
Breaking through a wooden board is trivial if you have even some basic training on how to properly throw a straight punch or make a kick. Some of it is for show and most things they break (wood boards, cinderblocks) are porous and comparably weak.
How much force does it take to break a 1 inch board?
A standard 12 by 12 white pine board takes about 1100 newtons (roughly 250lbs) of force to break. Because wood is a natural material, that varies a bit from board to board. A rule of thumb generally taught to martial artists is that breaking one board is equivalent to break one rib.
