PAWTUCKET â It was a big day for 11-year-old Alec Mustafayev of Providence. He focused all of his karate training and on the second try, broke a board in half with his bare hands while onlookers clapped loudly. It was all part of the various techniques on display at the first Pawtucket Martial Arts Festival held Saturday morning at the Pawtucket YMCA.
