This journey needs to become part of who you are: Mentally, you’re focused. You have specific goals in mind that you want to accomplish, and then you set out to do them. You’re not “on a diet.” Instead, you’re making conscious decisions every day to eat healthier food and follow a plan.

5 Life Lessons From “The Karate Kid” #1 – Learn From Adversity. Daniel didn’t ask to be bullied. He was just the new kid in town, which made him an easy #2 – There Are No Shortcuts. From Daniel’s journey, one can see that there are no shortcuts.

That’s exactly why a great #3 – Learn From Good. So in homage to The Karate Kid, the 80’s and of course Mr Miyagi (the late great Pat Morita), we bring you some pearls of wisdom from this classic underdog film. Yep here’s our rundown of 10 life lessons learned from The Karate Kid. Call me nostalgic (or a sap for recalling the magic of 80’s movies) but I believe the following lessons can be learned from The Karate Kid and.

There are two kinds of movies: the ones that merely entertain and the ones that carry essential life lessons. The 80s blockbuster hit Karate Kid is certainly among the latter. In fact, one of the most iconic movie quotes was uttered by Mr.

Miyagi: “First learn stand, then learn.

  • Happy Birthday to the Master of Invisible Arts in the Land of the Konaka Clan, who has the consideration of teaching one student to be in a confident soul of Battlefield. Represent from [Nippon] Land of Raising Sun, Japan. He’s Daniel’s best teacher. Miyagi AKA Pat Morita He’s a brilliant master and teacher for the student of important events to come in the upper hand which enables him to be stronger, more determinant, vigilant, responding, and very aware in any situation that comes against Danialson. Banzii. Wax on, Wax off. Stay focus on what is right and what is very best for the true warrior in his destiny.

  • Wow the memories come flooding back, I remember seing this as a kid and everyone in school was charging about saying try punching me and then going “wax on…wax off”. I defintely got smacked in the mouth a few times!

  • I always feel inspired when I see this scene, I am 39 going on 40 and was a little kid when these films came out. Got me into Tae Kwon Do! I know that’s not Karate, but still. The films will forever be in my heart.

  • I disagree with him saying “There’s no such thing as a bad student, only a bad teacher. Teacher say, student do” There have been people with good sensei’s/martial arts teacher who abuse it outside of class. By his logic there would have to be corrupt teachers and students going all the way back to the person who invented the martial art. I guess he’s never heard of something called betrayal. Watch Dragonheart Mr Miyagi, or the Nuremberg defense “I was just following orders”

  • @ 0:47..”That would be face contact. I would be disqualified.” Just like you beat Johnny and you knew it was illegal but still took the victory and the trophy when you knew it was illegal and wrong> Daniel is the real bully

  • Janet Reno made it into the Mueller hearings conversation dead for 4 years retired for 19. How about Bush’s warning of vast 9/11 conspiracies methinks he protests too much, eh?

  • The point of this was, there are many different paths of learning but some cause destruction along the journey lacking balance, too much ying or yang but what miyagi teaches is a mixture of both in unison, Ying Yang must be in balance

  • Even though Mr. Miyagi is a fictional character his wisdom is absolutely practical and timeless in a lot of ways by not only interjecting the ethical aspects of Human Nature, But also applying Humor and Practicality to almost any scenario, My Favorite Miyagi Moment is from the Second Movie where Him and Daniel see an advertisement of Sato breaking a Log and Daniel ascertains whether or not Mr. Miyagi can doIt as well, Mr. Miyagi perfectly replies “Don’t know, never been attacked by Tree.”

  • Damn, Avildsen and Kamen could’ve done way more with Terry Silver’s character. The movie dwelled on too much on stuff that didn’t have to be. That’s a huge reason why it flopped.

  • Silver is an idiot, getting Daniel all worked up like this could have led to Daniel breaking his hand and being unable to compete.

  • If a millennial took the place of Daniel, they would be crying. “He screamed at me and hurt my feelings!” You know what… they would not have even made it to that lesson.

  • my dad raised me on old jackie chan and kung fu/karate movies, so seeing this gave me massive nostalgia and a sort of “passing down the teachings through generations” type feel

  • I still get goosebumps whenever I see this. It’s just such an awesome “reveal.”

    Pat Morita played this perfectly. I dunno how input or influence he had in developing the character of Mr. Miyagi, but I love how the character develops into a man of such profound life experience and wisdom while still being relateable, and best of all without falling into the sort of painful, cringe-worthy cliches and tropes that beset Asians and Asian martial artists in movies before, and even after, this came out. No fortune-cookie wisdom, no mystical/magical bullshit, none of it.

    It was great to see him become a fuller, more human character in the sequel, dealing with the death of his father, and how he and Daniel bond over that shared experience…with Daniel getting a chance to drop a little of his own wisdom, in some small way, on Miyagi.

  • I think this scene was probably one go the greatest scenes in the history of Hollywood of fighting training. It was awesome in the old school way that It was done, it with class and inner strength and style.

  • The Karate Kid, although incredibly racist propaganda (not the way you reflexively think, either) was a great movie and dear to my heart because of the scene where Miyagi demonstrates what he’s been teaching Daniel.

    Chuck Norris couldn’t understand these lessons (so he said on the Tonight Show). But then he didn’t grow up in a family of craftsmen or tradesmen (in which I would include “fishermen”).

    Miyagi was teaching Daniel “muscle memory”. He didn’t have a lot of time, or other students to work with in training Daniel. And he was teaching Daniel more than just combat techniques. One of the lessons he was teaching Daniel I heard years later in the movie “The Forbidden Kingdom”:

    Kung Fu hard work over time to accomplish skill. A painter can have kung fu, or the butcher, who cuts meat every day with such skill his knife never touches bone…. learn it all, then forget it all…learn the way, then find your own way… a musician can have kung fu, or the poet, who paints pictures with words and makes emperors weep.

    Or the bricklayer, who builds with such skill, he goes home without a speck of mortar on him… something that my grandfather did that fascinated and frustrated my father, who began teaching me as a young boy to be a mason, as he was taught by my grandfather (and he by his). I began by handing brick to my father so he could lay faster. Then, he let me practice spreading mortar on the edge of the mortar board, while teaching me that spreading mortar was the key to laying brick well. While practicing, I learned the different consistencies of mortar, I learned, by watching how, to place the brick, how to judge plumb and level by eye; I learned the different bonds and their purpose and use, and as I learned, my hand muscles and arm muscles became conditioned to the trowel, so a couple years later, when I was allowed on the wall, I could spread a perfect bead without thinking; some years later in a college fencing course, my instructor was teaching the class to hold their foil lightly, so that it could be whacked out of their grip. He kept trying to demonstrate with me, and failing to knock it out, complaining that I was gripping too tightly… til I held my hand out palm up, showing him that it was resting in my palm being held only by the muscles of my palm itself.

    Like Daniel-san, I was taught much more than the simple mechanics of the craft.

  • Myagi put the training into a way Daniel would understand. So he would know it’s the same as waxing a car, painting a house or fence, or sanding a deck, all things Daniel would be doing as an adult. So at the same time he was preparing Daniel for life.

  • Continuity error. Daniel’s right arm is raised @ 1:17 Daniel’s left arm is raised @ 1:18
    Also, Mr. Miyagi’s hands are both up @ 1:17 and then only one hand is up @ 1:18

  • Daniel was a poor friend and student. In three he refused Mr. Miyagis instruction. Daniel was also a coward at heart (as Chosen pointed out). He didn’t move or even try to stop kumiko from getting hurt during the dance. There’s no way I would have just sat there. He treated Miyagi as a tool to better his life yet when Mr. Miyagi told him to do kata he refused at first. I don’t know any karate student who would be so foolish or any Sinsei who would tolerate such a refusal. Especially an old school one like Mr. Miyagi.

  • Every real Marital Artist knows that the main concept of the art is defense. He was teaching him how to block and duck which is the main form of Kung Fu

  • I was a kid when these movies first came out and while I found them fun, I was too young to truly appreciate the wisdom they contained. Now as an adult of 41 years and watching the way the world is going, I see the fundamental wisdom of his words and wish more people knew and understood the same.

    R.I.P. Pat Morita. Thank you for your lessons.

  • Okay, so this movie is from my time, saw it at the theater; it’s a beloved classic that just got successfully revived; Pat Morita got nominated for a supporting Oscar for his role; but goddamn—I have never heard ANY Japanese person talk like Mr. Miyagi. NEVER. I don’t care how fresh off the boat they are, broken English like this just doesn’t exist. I mean, I grew up in Hawaii and pidgin was a type of broken English developed on the plantations so workers from different countries could converse with each other, and once that pidgin was passed to the next generation as their primary language it technically became a creole—but fuck a duck, man, it doesn’t sound ANYTHING like this Miyagi shit. Don’t get me wrong: I enjoy the movie, I enjoy what Morita did with what he was given, but let’s face it: His part is as drenched in Oriental stereotype with a capital O as they come and, unfortunately, because it depicts a wise, noble character, everyone overlooks how unintentionally fucking RACIST it is. It’s the Asian equivalent of what’s called the “Magical Negro,” and if you’re not familiar with that term, look it up (there’s also the “Magical Native,” but we won’t even get into that). So, yeah, yay to Pat Morita for playing this iconic role and being recognized by the industry for it, and boo to the fucking cringey-ass writing. Or as Mr. Miyagi might say, “Your writing not reflect real life. Only make yellow cliche.”

  • Daniel the son miyagi never got to raise, miyagi, the father Daniel never had, the actors on set chemistry did such a fantastic job demonstrating their relationship, one of the best underdog stories

  • In Asia, senseis will often demand ridiculous chores from their students. Some see this is exploitation, but they miss the point. It is actually a test. The sensei is trying to evaluate and test the character of the student. Because character is the single most important thing in how far you can go learning an art, as well as what you will do with it once you have mastered it. Masters don’t want to waste their time teaching to students that don’t have much potential, or students who are sociopaths and will use their knowledge for evil.

    So, when a master makes you work under the Sun for 10 hours straight doing some exhausting chore, he is testing you to see how much will-power you have, and how much you are willing to sacrifice to acquire knowledge. When a master tells you that he will teach you some amazing technique the next day, and when the day comes he tells you that you are not ready yet, he is testing your patience and fortitude. When he tells you to do something demeaning, like scrubbing piss from the bathroom floor, he is testing to see if you are humble or arrogant. An arrogant man who knows techniques designed to destroy the human body will maim/kill for any perceived slight. When he makes you drive to some distant forest at 6:00 AM on a Sunday for a special lesson, and then when you arrive there he tells you that he changed his mind and doesen’t feel like teaching on a Sunday, he is testing you to see your tolerance to frustration. When he tells you to go a pharmacy to buy him some medicine that only someone of his age needs, making you wait in line and drive, he is testing how much respect you have for elders and their problems. Which, indirectly, tells him how much respect you have for your parents and grandparents. Tests.

    Masters are not “really” interested in you cleaning the floor, or running errands, or anything like that. Most true masters have enough students that they make enough money to pay a cleaning lady or an aid to run errands for him. What the master is doing is testing whether you have what it takes in mettle and tenacity to profit from his lessons, and whether you are worthy in terms of morals, integrity and respect for others. Failing at either one of those two categories means you are unworthy.

    Myself: 4th Dan Shorin-ryu karate, 2nd Dan Taekwondo and brown belt in BJJ.

  • Daniel: That would be face contact I’d be disqualified
    Me: Bruv, you kicked Johnny Lawrence in the face in your last tournament and you got away with it

  • Terrrys way is actually pretty legit, conditioning is used in karate and kung fu but maybe not to the extent where you break your fists so you can’t train the next day.

  • That’s blood so what make believe it’s his. This guy wants to break you, humiliate you stomp you into the ground and what are you going to do about it.

  • Terry’s facial expressions are priceless. He can also hardly contain his laughter. And when Daniel is in pain, you can tell he’s enjoying it. No doubt he’s the best villain in all of the KK series.

  • The only flaw to the third movie is how disrespecful Daniel became to Miyagi. I didn’t like that. Not after all they’d been through. He started acting like a frustrated little brat. Still a good movie though. Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver was excellent as the main bad guy. He nailed the role. Just like he nailed it as Valek in Vampires.

  • I’ve always liked the film and this clip was shown during a leadership seminar I attended. Incredibly powerful and sent tingles down my spine!

  • The best Miyagism isn’t shown in this video. It’s the scene where Daniel and him first walk into the all valley tournament competition area. Upon entering, Daniel asks Mr. Miyagi where to go. Mr. Miyagi says something like “First time you first time me!” Daniel then says something like “Oh great, any other advice?”. Mr. Miyagi replies “Don’t get hit!”. Maybe it’s not the best Miyagism, but it’s sound advice for a karate tournament newbie ��

  • I ski a lot for your average London waiter, at least once a week at an indoor slope. It was hard at first, because by the time a week went by, my body was out of the habits I’d learned the week before skiing.

    When I was waiting, I started to be more fluid in my movements. When going from A to B or moving around the Bar, I started to lean into it and keep on my toes, often having most of my balance on one foot or another, just because it felt good. We always play music, so I started trying to move in time to the rhythm of the music at work. It took me a while to realise that a lot of my movements were the same as the ones I made during skiing: they used the same muscles and developed the same memory.

    Now I dont have to adjust to being on the snow, because I’m always there. I’m not saying that this movie is a guide to how to live, or that it has much to say about the actual art of Kung Fu, but the advice to embody what you want to learn in everything you so isn’t bad advice at all.

  • Mindfulness/focus on one moment that is often found in many eastern traditions (i.e. Zen Buddhism) is something people are loosing more and more these days. With endless entertainment everywhere and multitasking too much with modern tech is weakening ourselves.

  • What’s so horrible about this see that 6.7k gave thumbs down ���� is it because the young man is Black aka an Israelite�� (Jeremiah 14:2kjv)
    The little man kick bud lol

  • This movie would be better if it was a Sequel-Prequel kinda like Indiana Jones: Temple of Doom taking place between KK1 and KK2 and having Ali as well explaing in detail why he and Daniel broke up.

  • Surprisingly, these two actually didn’t really like working with each other in this movie. It was the fact that Ralph Macchio was always a jokester, but Pat Morita wanted to take acting seriously. These two may seem like best friends/family members, but if you look at how they acted behind the scenes, they actually didn’t really like each other. Surprising, huh?

  • yall talking about how Daniel joindd Cobra Kai but he really didnt. he went there to practice because mr. miyagi wouldnt help him for his second tournament. terry silver offered, never once in this movie does it mention that daniel actually joined cobra kai. and to everyone saying daniel didnt like mr. miyagi, he did but was upset with him. mr. miyagi wouldnt train him for this tournament because it wasnt self defense anymore. so daniel had to find a new trainor. just clearning things up.

  • All of these blocks are elements from Tensho kata, which was developed by the real-life Chojun Miyagi. Love the references to real martial arts!

  • Always wondered the difference between wax on wax off, and sand the floor. The motions looked a lot alike. But I was trained as in grappling, and Muay Thai, not Karate, Kung Fu, or Tae.

  • It’s sad how bad the movie is overall. It had so much potential, but it’s damn near identical to the original. The cinematography is amazing though, and Jackie Chan’s acting is flawless as always.

  • The way terry catched his fist is overpowering!!! The way terry pushes daniel to fight harder and destroy his opponents is badass teaching!!

  • This lesson is still not full learnt by even adults today. Anyone wanting to quickly learn a language or instrument or any skill needs to understand and truly appreciate this message. Most people never learn this and they wonder why they are average at things. They want to rush or skip the fundamentals.

  • “That’d be face contact, I’d be disqualified.” Says the guy who won the last tournament by kicking his final opponent in the face.

  • I always thought mr myagi’s karate was just a scam to get people to do his yard work. I would of checked out that place with the snake.

  • This scene is so great. i have finally at the age of 32 started taking up karate lessons.
    And this really does show a lot of the pedagogy of karate specially Goju Ryu. You learn technics that at first can seem sort like they have nothing to do with karate or self-defence. Just like Daniel doesn’t think that “wax on, wax off” has anything to do with karate. But then you realise that karate is all about training muscle memory by repeating the same technics or “kata” again and again. And then it clicks the one block or kick is part of a larger interconnected system and it makes sense. Then the lesions come together as the video is titled.

    one of the greatest lessons of karates learning is that its called self-defence because it’s about defending the self from your own fears and doubts. When doing kara and endlessly training punches and kicks without a “real” opponent, you are fighting your self. In this way, Daniel journey shows this with his learning and growth in the film.

  • You people better ask God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost to show you people who should never call me weird, how wrong it is, the judgement on their soul for it, who’s doing it, what I’m talking about, and what to do about it!

  • I honestly feel that this movie, flawed as it is, would have been a hell of a lot better recieved if it was the 2nd one. Karate Kid 2 is such a good movie, it set a lot of expectations that this movie could have not surpassed. However, set the bar pretty low with this movie, which is very entertaining in its own right, and come back in part 3 in Okinawa

  • In my opinion, the most pivotal part of the movie is at 1:43. The worst teachers take pleasure in hurting their students; the best teachers hate it but will do so if and when necessary. It’s a subtle yet significant difference.

  • This scene is about a kid that don’t know about respect until the man thaugh him about these fighting skills the real lesson is knowing what the unexpected because you never what will happen next this is why Kung Fu masters and trainers know these skills

  • Then Daniel passed that on to Robby. Similar but for starters it was… “show me wash the windows”. Later passed on to several of his students.

  • Over the years ive tried to get the kids on my block to cut my lawn and pick up the dog crap, so that they can learn karate. But all these millenials want to do MMA, not kung fu, so Im screwed.

  • Is it weird that I actually like Silver’s teaching style? Sure it’s a little bit on the aggressive side and goes against peace and self-defense but that part about making believe the blood is the opponent’s gets me pumped up everytime….sheesh

  • Pat morita always made my day watching his movies, you felt like he was a positive role model and taught us all respect to each other and ourselves, Rip pat m you got my respect sir!!

  • Growing up watching Kung Fu flicks we got used to the excruciating training everytime the protagonist wanted to acquire skill and strength, so when I saw the movie, I already knew what Miyagi was doing, but this scene for my western friends was like the culmination of the movie, how everything Miyagi said and did till that moment was all to train the kid

  • I know this quote wasn’t in the video but my fav Miyagi quote which still speaks to me every day:
    “Daniel-san, never put passion before principle. Even if win…. you lose.”

    WHAT I LEARNT: He’s talking about compromising an invaluable part of one’s self. A tradeoff to one’s own detriment.

    QUOTE CONTEXT: Mr Miyagi was recalling when he was 18, he had broken tradition and dishonoured his best friend Sato by marrying a girl he loved Yuki who Sato was arranged to marry. Sato challenged Miyagi to a fight to regain his honour.
    PRINCIPLE: Miyagi didn’t believe in fighting, or that violence, (possibly being killed) would solve the conflict. Rather than restoration, it would make matters worse by harbouring animosity and perpetuating future cycles of violence. Miyagi was taught to only use violence (Karate) in defence and as an absolute last resort, which he eventually agreed to when Sato threatened to destroy their village and sell the land if he didn’t.
    Growing up Mr Miyagi fondly remembered the good memories of his childhood with Sato, a highly valued relationship.
    Mr Miyagi’s actions, however, put him in a moral dilemma.
    He’s forced to choose between his love for Yuki (PASSION) and its consequences which would result in a violent and possibly deadly confrontation with Sato, OR stay true to his (PRINCIPLE) of no fighting which due to Sato not being able to be reasoned with caused Miyagi reluctantly made the very difficult decision to leave Okinawa believing it to be the better of two evils.

    Principles are truth statements, and truth ties us to reality. We all build our lives on truth (principles), they inform our actions and help shape our worldviews.
    Passion, however, is an innate drive within that feeds on the specific desires of a person. (Good or bad)
    Passion should never be allowed unimpeded free reign over principle but must always be submissive to it.
    Allowing one’s emotions alone to influence judgment and dictate actions, making decisions and acting in the heat of the moment is a disaster waiting to happen.
    If you allow passion to jeopardize principle (Truth) you risk undermining your own foundations. The two must work in unison.

  • I study Wado-kai karate. A sensei once told me the belt in karate is just your ego. Karate is in your head, in your heart. Karate is not in your belt

  • He can’t block the slap upside the head Miyagi gives him for not looking him in the eye though. Miyagi left out that particular chore.

  • one of the greatest scenes in film history. the moment a bullied kid will never be bullied no more!! and never knew he was learning to counter and block an attack.

  • This is when Daniel realizes not only was he already learning karate but he is also good enough to use it. You can see the fear, and amazement at the same time like, holy shit Mr Miyagi you trained me into a killing machine. He realizes with great power comes great responsibility.

  • In the Mid 80s I was working at a car rental near a busy airport. During my lunch break, I was practicing Mr. Miyagi’s Wax on, Wax off and other basic forms. Japanese businessman came in the breakroom looking for the restroom. They saw me practicing Karate. They came over to introduce themselves and my luck, one of the gents was a Blackbelt karate master in Japan. I told them that I just started training and I was only a white belt. He said, you young man, you have good stand and good blocking form. He showed me another blocking form, till this day, have only used twice. It has been very effective from getting my face punched in by the other guy. I was stoked and of course, none of my coworkers believed me what just happened. Dang! That was 34 years ago…

  • “That’d be face contact. I’d be disqualified.”
    Says the same kid who won the last tournament by kicking his final opponent in the face.

  • The ultimate plot twist: Daniel never returns to Mr Miyagi, embraces Cobra Kai, and destroys Mike Barnes in the tournament. Then what would Kreese and Silver have to say about that?!

  • One of my favourite scenes along with the one where Mr. Miyagi gets drunk and you find out about his wife and child he lost while he was at war. Such emotional scenes… this movie will forever be the best ��

  • This clip is flawed. It doesn’t show the part where Daniel gets angry at what he perceives as being an old man taking advantage of him. The context is everything here, and without that essential part the rest isn’t as emotionally impactful.

  • I love the video, but in my opinion the best Miyagi words of wisdom was left out. When they are on the fishing boat, Miyagi says “Why, fighting is fighting, same, same.” Daniel says, “But you knew karate.” Then Miyagi says one of the best, most correct lines ever (and not just about karate, but about anything in life)…..”Someone else, always knows more.”

  • Y’know. Now that I think about it. Shouldn’t this movie be called “The Kung-Fu Kid” rather than the Kararte Kid. Considering Karate is the name for Japanese Martials Arts? Whereas Kung-Fu is the Martial Arts name for China? In China and not Japan? Even the producers said themselves that this is not the Karate Kid movies we know from the classics.

  • When you watch the Pat Morita interview they weren’t even considering him for the role. Then they did a massive audition and the guy that didn’t want or really know him called to apologize and said I almost made a huge mistake, you have the part Pat.
