Coach Couzo Quotes in Best of the Best (1989)
Coach Couzo Quotes:
Coach Couzo: [to Wade as she confronts him after seeing Tommy's brother on tape] This has nothing to do with winning; if those boys do their best and fail, I'll still be proud, but if they don't give it their all and I don't give them mine, then it's my failure and my disgrace. In fact, that's exactly what happened to Tommy's brother. You saw that tape? I was the coach of that team, Ms. Wade. And back then, I didn't have the heart to give them rules and drive them to the edge to the point where they hated my guts! Tommy's brother died because I failed; he was not prepared. And I will never let that happen again, EVER!
Coach Couzo: You've worked very hard. All of you. You've grown, as athletes and individuals. You've learnt a lot. We've ALL learned a lot. As Miss Wade would say; a teacher also learns from his students. Today, you have the chance to be the greatest martial artists in the world. It's up to you. If you give everything you've got, EVERYTHING, you'll be winners. That I promise you. You can be the best of the best.
Coach Couzo: My name is Frank Couzo. To you, I am either Coach, or Mr Couzo. Starting tommorow, you are mine for the next three months. That means no women, no alcohol, no drugs. You will eat, sleep and shit competition.
Coach Couzo: [attempting to convince Tommy that he made the right choice] You won that match, don't ever forget that.
Tommy Lee: [Remains silent, putting his head down after a regrettable defeat]
