I was flipping through the channels yesterday, and I saw that the original Karate Kid movie was on. I remember that movie from when I was a kid, so I watched the end…right where Daniel Son was entering the tournament, gets his leg swept by the Cobra Kai, goes into the locker room and gets told there’s no hope, and then stares at Mr. Miyagi and asks him to “do that thing you do” to heal up his injured leg.

Then he hobbles out to the match to fight the final battle and delivers a Crane kick to Johnny’s face and wins the trophy.

What a great movie! I quickly posted this on my Instagram story: “Everyone needs a Mr. Miyagi.” If you’ve seen the movies, you’ll know that Miyagi helps young Daniel through life.

Here are a few things a Mr. Miyagi does for your life:

  1. Teaches you the basics
  2. Piques your interested in the subject
  3. Let’s you learn on your own while guiding you
  4. Puts up with your immaturity
  5. Helps you when your hurt

What else did Mr. Miyagi do that you think is useful life?

Do you have someone who helps you like Miyagi helped Daniel?
