Joe LeWis, one of the founders of the Karate Kid brand, was asked what he would like to be when he grows up.
LeWise told The Next World News that he is a “karate kid.”
LeWises comments come after his bandana was featured in a new ad campaign for The Jungle Book.
The ad features a young boy wearing the bandana as he plays a ball.
The kid, played by the actor Jesse Lacey, is asked what it would be like to have a “big brother” who could “throw you into a punch line.”
“It would be nice to have some of that daddy-daughter banter that we’ve had for so long,” LeWised said.
In a similar ad for the film adaptation of The Jungle Boy, the boy plays a karate instructor.
The character of Lacey has a similar character, but he is not wearing a bandana.
LeWs face is covered in black bandana and the boy says, “I would never let him wear a bandanna.”
LeWis said he was “proud to wear a kata belt and a karaoke belt” as he did when he was a child.
“When I was a kid, I loved being able to put on the kata belts and do my kata,” he said.
“I’d be like, ‘Why aren’t you wearing a belt?'”
He also said that he would be proud to “take off a belt and wear karate pants.”
Karate kid group, The Jungle Bandana is one of several brands in which LeWising is a part of the marketing team.
In January, the company released a new video that featured his bandanas and a new logo.
He has also created a website that allows anyone to submit their own designs.
Lewises first karate name was “John.”
