The karate seen in the Karate Kid series is Okinawan Goju and Mr Miyagi's name is taken from Miyagi Chojun who is the originator of the style. This was the choice of the movie director (or producer) who practised Goju-ryu. Curiously the stunt double for Pat Morita was Fumio Demura, a Shitoryu expert.

To add to this, the writer of the Karate Kid movies, Robert Mark Kamen, studied Isshin-Ryu. :0


Also, did you know that Ed O'Neill is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Pat Johnson was the martial arts coordinator for The Karate Kid. He trained in Tang Soo Do in Korea and taught at Chuck Norris' school in Sherman Oaks, California.

Pat Johnson brought in Fumio Demura to double for Pat Morita. Pat Morita based his portrayal of Mr. Miyagi on the persona of Fumio Demura.
