The Karate Kid 2

Sato accuses Mr. Miyagi of offending his honor and then being too cowardly to meet the challenge of a duel. What is the difference between honor and pride? What is the difference between cowardliness and self-control?

Mr. Miyagi claims, "For person with no forgiveness in heart, living is worse punishment than death." Why? How does this statement reflect Sato’s desire to pursue past grievances, even after so any years?

What does Mr. Miyagi mean when he tells Daniel, "Never put passion before principle—even if you win, you lose?" Do you agree with him?
