Karate Here [Touches Head]. Karate Here [Touches Heart]. Karate Here [Touches Butt]. Karate Never Here [Touches Gut]. Understand? Okay, maybe we added in a bit of that Threadheads flavour, and Mr Miyagi didn’t point to his juicy butt.
Welcome to the Threadheads dojo, young Customer-San. Are you ready to strike first at these Karate Kid t-shirts? Are you ready to wax on, wax off, and wax it all about in a Karate Kid hoodie?
Will you crane kick or sweep the leg in your Karate Kid t-shirt?
Look. If it was up to us, you wouldn’t be crane kicking or sweeping legs in your Karate Kid shirts. Why? We’re pacifists at Threadheads, and we like to solve our problems with silent treatment until someone has a breakdown and shaves a runway in the middle of their head.
Okay, maybe not. But we do like solving our problems with toilet humour. So, if you’re not a fan of letting a wave of nostalgia wash over you in these Karate Kid shirts and have no idea why you’re wasting your time reading this nonsense, peep our funny t-shirts instead.
However, if you are itching for a kick, you’re in the right place. Whether you’re a fan of Miyagi-Do Karate or Cobra-Kai Karate, you’d look sensational flexing your karate muscles in a Karate Kid t-shirt. Or perhaps you'd love to up the dose of nostalgia in some Cobra Kai merch. Strike hard. Strike fast. No mercy.
Mr Miyagi is the daddy you never had. There’s a little Miyagi in all of us.
If you were lucky enough to grow up watching the original Karate Kid movies, you’d be familiar with the kernels of wisdom scattered throughout. Mr Miyagi’s English might be broken, but his advice wasn’t. He really was the daddy we always wanted.
Next time you throw on a Karate Kid hoodie or flick through dozens of Karate Kid t-shirts, imagine that Mr Miyagi is whispering these words in your ears. Whether he’s doing it erotically or thoughtfully, that’s up to you.
- ‘When you feel life out of focus, always return to basic of life.’
- ‘Man who catch fly with chopstick, accomplish anything.’
- ‘Not matter who’s stronger. Matter who’s smarter!’ While we do agree with this generally, it would help to be stronger if you’re about to get the intestines kicked out of you by Conor McGregor. Just saying.
- ‘To make honey, young bee need young flower, not old prune.’ Now, we don’t know what sort of honey Mr Miyagi was talking about, but we’re hoping it was manuka.
- ‘For man with no forgiveness in heart, life worse punishment than death.’
- ‘First learn stand, then learn fly. Natural rule, Daniel-San, not mine.’
- ‘Inside you have strong root. No need nothing except what inside you to grow.’ Does anyone else think this sounds a little bit too risqué?
So, please, express your love for the wisest karate master of the 80s, and scoop up these official Threadheads x Karate Kid hoodies, t-shirts, and more.
Find balance in Karate Kid sweaters. And meditate in your Karate Kid tank tops.
Balance is key. Balance good, karate good. Everything good. Balance bad, better pack up, go home.
Nowadays, finding balance in life is difficult. We went from living in caves and grunting at each other to being able to meet a potential paramour while sitting in our underpants on the sofa. It’s weird. And it’s so hard to switch off.
And let’s not forget the hyper-productivity culture that’s surging through social media at the moment. If you haven’t had a cold shower, meditated, licked your elbows, delivered a heifer calf, and made 24-hour smoked pulled pork in 2 hours and before 7.00 am, you’re not balanced.
At Threadheads, we believe that you just need to stop and smell the roses. According to Janice (our HR manager), you have two options in life. Your first option is to do all those things that we’ve suggested above to signal to the world that you’re a balanced individual.
Other random facts about Karate Kid that will totally make you want to buy Karate Kid shirts.
Do you know Mr Miyagi’s first name?
In our view, you can’t call yourself a fan of the Miyagi-verse without knowing Mr Miyagi’s first name. To help you avoid feeling like an imposter in a Cobra Kai shirt or even a Cobra Kai hoodie, here is Mr Miyagi's first name: Salamander. Okay, we’re joking. It’s actually Nariyoshi. Pretty cool, eh?
Do you love Karate Kid as much as Ralph Macchio?
Ralph Macchio loved Karate Kid so much that he decided to call his only son Daniel. BRB , convincing our partners that we’re naming our firstborn Miyagi. It's not enough to just wear a Karate Kid sweater.
Two and a Half Men in Karate Kid? No thanks.
Charlie Sheen turned down the role of Daniel LaRusso, and we are so glad he did. It wouldn’t feel the same wearing a Karate Kid shirt knowing that Charlie Harper was once the Karate Kid. Eek.
I love Karate Kid, but what about Cobra Kai merch?
We're glad you asked. Head over here to get your fix of Cobra Kai t-shirts, hoodies, and more.
