Cobra Kai Quotes

Gunther: And who are you?
Daniel: I'm Sensei Daniel LaRusso, two-time All-Valley champion.
Johnny: Sensei Johnny Lawrence, also two-time champion.
Chozen: Chozen Toguchi. Master Sensei.
Amanda: Amanda LaRusso, karate-adjacent.

There are three things that make a champion. The three D's. Desire. Devotion. And discipline. The first two I can't give you. The last one I can, but you have to be willing to receive it.
