My Karate Sensei Told Me the Biggest Lie of My Life

And I believed it

Me (right), Mom (middle), Brother (left)

The biggest lie I was ever told in life, came from my karate sensei.

The word “ok” was forbidden in our dojo.

Anytime a student used it, he would yell, “What is ok?!”

The whole class would respond, “Not ok!”
