Line(s) of the Day #TheKarateKid


Wax on, right hand. Wax off, left hand. Wax on, wax off. Breathe in through nose, out the mouth. Wax on, wax off. Don’t forget to breathe, very important.

Mr Mayagi (Noriyuki “Pat” Morita) in the inspirational underdog story The Karate Kid (1984), which tells of an elderly karate expert’s unusual teaching methods to a bullied teenager.

  1. Forgetting to breathe is the most egregious error I make day in an day out. Just stopping and breathing deeply for a couple minutes totally makes everything better. One of these days I’ll master it. Great quote!

      • My Dad has lots of dvds, I like Grease, Indiana Jones movies, but I’m not sure of when they were made. Have you seen The Natural I love that film. My favourites I watch over and over are Reese Witherspoon romcoms but I don’t think they were the 80s and 50 First Dates.

      • Grease has such a fantastic array of songs. The Natural is great. Field of Dreams is my favourite baseball film. So moving. Eight Men Out stands out too.
