He tells Miyagi that he fell in love with a woman named Yukie, who was arranged to marry his friend Sato, son of the richest man in the village and fellow karate student of his father.

He angrily explains that his girlfriend Ali has dumped him for a football player from UCLA. Miyagi tells Daniel that he spoke to his mother and she has agreed to let Daniel stay with him.
