The Karate Kid

When was the last time you watched The Karate Kid?

If you were hanging with me and my boys this weekend, then the answer would be yesterday.

It is so fantastically 80’s and riddled with so many great and inspiring lines.


Mr. Miyagi: “Trust the picture.”

Daniel: “How do I know if my picture is the right one?”

Mr. Miyagi: “If it comes from inside you, always right one.”


Mr. Miyagi: “Man who catch fly with chopstick, accomplish anything.”


Mr. Miyagi: “Got to learn balance. Balance is key. Balance good, karate good. Everything good.”


Hint: It’s on Netflix right now. Totally worth it. You can thank you me later.

    I have a little guy who is going to the World Martial Arts games in Telford, England. He competes in 11 days. He has been paying attentions to those lines. He loves Mr. Myagi! Fun post.
