```Sorry, I replaced False with True in my first reading. Still:

In[6]:= relation = -k^2 + w^2/KK^2 > 0;

In[7]:= assumption = w/k < KK;

In[8]:= counterExample =
FindInstance[assumption && relation, {w, k, KK}]

Out[8]= {{w -> -(3/2), k -> 1, KK -> 1}}

In[9]:= {assumption, relation} /. counterExample

Out[9]= {{True, True}}
