Miyagi












I watched the original Karate Kid the other day, and I have to say it's still after all of these years one of my favorite movies. The acting is fantastic, the story is awesome and the philosophy and spiritual undertone to the movie is beautiful.

One of my favorite characters ever is Mr. Miyagi, of course he's just a plain bad ass that could crack any Cobra Kai in half, but he's also a healer which I especially think is awesome. He has such a great presence and there are many scenes within the movie in unison with the japanese flute that are very moving. I posted one of my favorite scenes below as well as a cool/cheesy music vid lol. These drawings are dedicated to Pat Morita for doing such a wonderful job in bringing a hero and mentor to life on screen. Arigato gozaimasu Mr. Morita.
