When you’re learning self-defense, you want to learn from someone that doesn’t mess around. Pai Mei is one such person. It’s not even a matter of “tough love” with this guy—it’s just tough. He forces you to go through extreme discomfort both mentally and physically before teaching you thinks like the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique, which has you exploding hearts in—you guess it—five easy steps. Chuck Norris sure never did that!

Pai Mei also erratically changed the way a generation viewed male facial hair. Granted, if anyone lived in isolation on a mountain for years on end, they’d probably get their beard and brows to look just like Pai Mei’s (nah, they couldn’t). 

#TeachMeMiyagi

Mr. Miyagi is the kindly old uncle of martial arts. You want someone whose mostly disciplinary, but whom you can invite over to dinner with your mom too, you know? It can’t be all hardcore, all the time. The teachers we hold dear to our hearts are the ones we have real connections with, not the one that toss out our rice

#TeachMeMiyagi

The real great thing about Mr. Miyagi is that no one really takes him seriously at his surface level. They see this quiet, unassuming, seemingly fragile who, without warning, can crack and KARATE CHOP. TAKE THAT, COBRA KAI.
