If do right, no can defense.

Could you teach me?

First learn stand,

then learn fly.

Nature rule, Daniel-san.

- Oh, yes.


Johnny, leave him alone!

He's had enough!

- An enemy deserves no mercy!

- Right!

- No mercy!

- Right!

You're crazy!

Tommy, Bobby, get him!

Mercy is for the weak.

Here, on the street,

in competition...

a man confronts you,

he is the enemy.

An enemy deserves no mercy.

What is the problem, Mr. Lawrence?

Come on, let's forget this.

Wait. Not yet.

Time out.

Go to your sensei.

Turn. Kneel.

Johnny, you're a cream-puff.

Sweep the leg.

You have a problem with that?

No, Sensei.

No mercy.

It's over, Johnny!

You did it!

LaRusso, you okay?

Can you go on?

Get him a body bag!

Finish it!

No mercy!

Way to finish, Johnny!

For what?

My future.

My whole tournament career.

Miyagi already have one.

Really? What is it?

Early retirement.

wait for us at restaurant.

I know. I am starving.

- That was great.

- Thank you.

LaRusso, very impressive win.

You showed a lot of poise.

People are going to be talking about that

last kick for years. Congratulations.

Get out of my way!

Out of my way!

- What you doing to the brother?

- Don't play with me.

Excuse me.

Why does he act like that?

That guy just doesn't know

what karate's all about.

- Well, maybe he should learn.

- Would you like to teach him?

- Good luck, Daniel.

- Thanks.

- Take care.

- Thanks.

Oy, keep ladies waiting.

- Wait, wait!

Oh, yeah?

It's the price of fame.

got to get used to it.

Take it easy.

Maybe I will see you.

That's not fair.

I got second place.

Second place is no place!

You're off the team!

- I did my best.

- What did you say?

- I did my best.

- You're nothing! You're a loser!

- No, you're the loser.

- I am the loser, huh?

- Now who's the loser?

- You're really sick, man.

- Hey, what are you doing?

- Don't!

How does second place

feel now, huh?

- He can't breathe!

- Mind your business.

- You're going to kill him!

- Sensei, please.

You're hurting him.

He's sorry. He really is.

- Let him go.

- Mr. Miyagi's right.

Let him go!

I said, let him go!

Beat it, slope, or you're next.

Mercy is for the weak.

We do not train

to be merciful here.

A man face you, he is enemy.

Enemy deserve no mercy.


ladies no wait forever.

You could have killed him,

couldn't you?

- Oy.

- Why didn't you then?

Because, Daniel-san, for person

with no forgiveness in heart...

Iiving even worse punishment

than death.

Oh, Daniel-san,

must have been some senior prom.

- What happened?

- You mean, what didn't happen.

First I let Ali borrow the car,

and she redesigns my fender.

I don't know what she did to the engine,

but that ain't running right either.

And you know what else she does?

Tells me that she's just fallen in love

with some football player from UCLA.

- Why didn't she just lie?

- Things could be worse.

Don't worry about it.

They are.

Last night I find out my mom

got picked by a company to go to Fresno.

Two months. We leave tomorrow afternoon.

I got to spend my whole summer in Fresno.

You're not going to

be able to fix that.

How'd you do that?

What'd you do?

- Come. Miyagi tell you later.

- Where we going?

I have just the thing

make you feel better.

- Probably got work for me to do.

- Hit nail on head.

How come every time I have a problem,

you have work for me?

- Cosmic coincidence.

- When'd you build this?

Daniel-san, watch.

Come. Take off jacket.

You try.

Must focus.


Focus. Most important.

- I can't, Mr. Miyagi, not today.

- Why?

Because my whole life

is going out of focus, that's why.

When you feel life out of focus...

always return to basic of life.

What, praying?


No breathe, no life.

Oy. Come try it.

Out of mouth.

Breathe in through nose.

Breathe out of mouth.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Oy. Now how feel?

Better. More focused.

Good. Come back to work.

- Hey, I did it.

- You focused, Daniel-san.


Breathe in, breathe out.



Very good work.

Yeah. I will be right there.

- How feel?

- Much better, thanks.

What am I building

out there, any way?

Guest room.

- You expecting company?

- Ah, refugee.

Refugee? Oh, yeah?
