Fear does not exist in this dojo, does it?! (Karate)

submitted by jaylink to /forum/karate

We do not train to be merciful here. Mercy is for the weak. Here, in the streets, in competition. A man confronts you, he is the enemy. An enemy deserves no mercy.

Hah, Martin Kove was a student of Count Dante, and he says he stole that line straight from The Count!

Here's what Wikipedia used to say on that:

Martin Kove, who played the character "Kreese" in the film The Karate Kid, ad-libbed his famous "Pain does not exist in this dojo..." monologue based on his time as a young student and Count Dante was his sensei.

But, the "Trivia" section has been deleted from the Martin Kove article, and one has to look in the "History" to find it.
