And he was a big one, because in my view Morita was the picture of the assention of Asians in American popular culture. He went from playing roles that were somewhat “less than” to one that gained him true respect as an actor: that of “Mr. Miyagi” in “The Karate Kid.” How many people loved it when he smoothly beat the crap out of that bully and his so-called martial arts teacher in the second “Kid” film? But far beyond that, Morita became a massive part of American Culture and he served the mantle of icon with dignity. He will be missed but never forgotten.
