    In the movie 'The Next Karate Kid', in response to Julie trying to kill a cockroach with her shoe, Mr. Miyagi says he has respect for every living creature, but in an earlier karate kid movie, he tries to catch a fly in chopsticks.‎

    Perhaps in the earlier movie Mr. M's intent was to catch the fly and move it to a different area? (After showing off that he can catch a fly in chopsticks). I don't know. It's been a while since I saw this movie.

    That's amazing.

    But if I were to pretend it wasn't just a continuity error, I would explain that everybody has respect for "all" life to a different degree. Some only humans, some humans and dogs, some humans, dogs, and cats, some all but fish, and so on. Perhaps the miniscule size of the fly earned it a spot on Mr. Myagi's "doesn't count" list.
