I didn’t know what to do. As long as I had been taking karate at that school, I had never failed so miserably. I didn’t want to accept it. But, as it often did with many bad feelings, a big cone of Graeter’s double chocolate chip ice cream helped to heal my sorrow, and from there I just had to suck it up

Outsiders who don’t have any extensive knowledge of karate often think about the
