“It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” – Rocky Balboa
Shi-Woon Yi was never any good at physical sports, had always been smaller than everyone else and always got bullied, pushed around and kicked down. Until he witnessed one of the new substitute teachers defending him with immense martial art skills.
He begs to be taught by this teacher to learn to become strong, but the teacher refuses at first. He eventually agrees but only if Shi-Woon Yi can prove he has the skills worthy of becoming his disciple. Little did he know, his new teacher is a world famous master with a mastery of nine martial arts! Shi-Woon Yi now thrown into the deep end of a new world, he must defend himself against new foes.
I personally enjoy this manhwa as it contains lots intense fight scenes with an awesome art style that makes it intense to read, but it’s not all about the fighting. The back story of why everything is happening is very engrossing . Watching Shi-Woon grow from a bullied student to being able to defend himself and lead. However things start to go sour when his his masters true identity is revealed and the school comes under fire from a mysterious martial arts society.
The Breaker is only the 1st season, the story continues in The Breaker: New Waves.
