"Back then, our teachers were Japanese. It wasn't bad. We weren't really afraid - unless you did something bad, then you got hit. If you didn't listen, they would hit you. Like a burlap bag, they would strike you on the ground - all the teachers knew karate. They would slap you. They would do it. Nowadays, teachers can't do that. Parents will go and hit the teacher back. They would make you stand in the corner. To punish the students, make them stand."
