Karate Kid Wax On, Wax Off T-Shirt

All of us 80’s kids can remember the infamous Wax On, Wax Off scene from The Karate Kid. You know, the one where Daniel has been beaten up and he asks Miyagi to help him learn how to fight, only to get an excruciatingly long lesson in how to wash a car and paint a fence? He’s actually practicing repetition to build muscle memory, and it helps him learn how to expertly block punches.

Wax on, right hand. Wax off, left hand. Wax on, wax off. Breathe… in through nose, out the mouth. Wax on, wax off. Don’t forget to breathe. Very important. Wax on, wax off. Wax on, wax off.

My 28-year-old cousin completely misses the reference. I’m not sure if that’s a sign of her age, or if it’s just her. Either way, anyone who hasn’t seen the Wax On, Wax Off scene can watch it in the Youtube clip below.

Prefer a more monochrome style? Check out the one below. You can get it in pretty much any color with the black design. I like it with the red or a classic white tee, but when you’re dealing with just black, almost anything looks good.
