Protege indeed! You seemed to have passed on your special secret 'block with your head' technique (~0:45-50).Nice one.
See, I saw Karate Kid in a different light than that.
Waxing, painting, sanding....these weren't really meant to teach Daniel-san how to block or even touch the basics of karate. That part was convenient moviemaking.
Mr. Miyagi realized Daniel was a whiny, weak brat who hadn't done an honest day's work in his life. How can you possibly learn REAL Okinawan karate if you're a skill-less punching bag who keeps picking fights with Kobra Kai senior students?
Miyagi thought "what a royal American dumbass....I better toughen him up or he's gonna get himself killed and then his mom will sue me, then it's sayonara for my sweet janitor gig".
FIRST learn stop cry, then learn stand, THEN learn fly.
Must be a Canadian thing.
