“No such thing as bad student, only bad teacher. Teacher say, student do.”
Mr. Miyagi was the karate master in the 1984 hit movie The Karate Kid. Played by Noriyuki “Pat” Morita, the film tells the story of Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), a teenage boy who is the victim of a group of high school bullies. After hearing the boy’s frustrations, Mr. Miyagi agrees to train Daniel in the ways of karate, eventually to the point where against the odds, Daniel is able to face and defeat his antagonists at the end of the movie with that awesome kick!
Mr. Miyagi is one of the most fondly remembered characters in cinema history. His unusual training techniques such as the famous "Wax on, Wax off" method, knowing sense of humor, quiet wisdom, and strong principles made him a fan favourite in both the original The Karate Kid film and its sequels, The Karate Kid: Part II and The Karate Kid: Part III.
For his performance as Mr. Miyagi, Pat Morita received best supporting actor nominations at both the Academy Awards® and the Golden Globe® Awards.
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment announces that Mr. Miyagi’s next apprentice is you! The famous Sensei will guide players in the upcoming PS® Vita Augmented Reality fighting game, Reality Fighters.
