Introduction: Break It!
Release the brick, and strike (or punch, or chop) it simultaneously. Make sure you hit in the middle of the brick, and try to carry the strike through the brick (aim your strike at a point below the brick).
This will feel so easy that the main difficulty of the trick will in fact be to make it look as if it were more difficult than it really is!
We have a be nice policy.
