The Top quotes from Mr Miyagi from the Karate Kid

I remember watching the Karate Kid when I was growing up. There are so many great lines for this movie particularly from Mr Miyagi.

Below are some great quotes from the movie. Enjoy.

“Never put passion in front of principle, even if you win, you’ll lose”

 

“First learn stand, then learn fly. Nature rule Daniel son, not mine”

 

“Man who catch fly with chopstick, accomplish anything”

 

“It’s ok to lose to opponent. It’s never okay to lose to fear”

 

“You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.” 

 

“Either you karate do ‘yes’ or karate do ‘no.’ You karate do ‘guess so,’ *squish!*”

 

“Hey, what kind of belt do you have?”

“Canvas. JC Penney, $3.98. You like?”

 

John Kreese: Fear does not exist in this dojo, does it?

Cobra Kai: No, Sensei!

John Kreese: Pain does not exist in this dojo, does it?

Cobra Kai: No, Sensei!

John Kreese: Defeat does not exist in this dojo, does it?

Cobra Kai: No, Sensei!

John Kreese: Prepare! What do we study here?

Cobra Kai: The way of the fist, sir!

John Kreese: And what is that way?

Cobra Kai: Strike first, strike hard, no mercy, sir!

John Kreese: I can’t hear you!

Cobra Kai: Strike first, strike hard, no mercy, sir!

 

Daniel Larusso: You know, this is the 80s, Mr. Miyagi. You can’t be so damn passive!

 

Daniel: Don’t those lies bother you?

Miyagi: No.

Daniel: Why not? People might think that they are true.

Miyagi: Lies only become true if person choose to believe.

Daniel: Is that another old Okinawa saying?

Miyagi: No. New Okinawa saying.

Daniel: How new?

Miyagi: Lets see… [pauses, pretending to think]

Miyagi: About ten seconds.

 

Mr. Miyagi: Don’t know, first time.
