About Rex from Napoleon Dynamite

Rex is the local dojo owner in Preston, Idaho, but it turns out that Rex isn’t the best teacher there is.

He usually uses cheap tricks to win the fights, and he uses weaker people like Kip as examples of how he fights.

After seeing a TV commercial for Rex Kwon Do, Kip Dynamite decides to go to Rex Kwon Do. However, after participating in the class in which Rex physically overwhelms him, Kip decides that Rex Kwon Do is way too difficult for him to handle.

It is then that Rex proceeds to insult Napoleon during the class and at the end of it, Kip and Napolean leave with Napoleon calling it a rip-off.


What is the most famous quote from Rex (Napoleon Dynamite)?

1. “I’m Rex, founder of the Rex Kwan Do self-defense system! After one week with me in my dojo, you’ll be prepared to defend yourself with the STRENGTH of a grizzly, the reflexes of a PUMA, and the wisdom of a man.”

2. “At Rex Kwan Do, we use the buddy system. No more flying solo. You need somebody watching your back – AT ALL TIMES. Second off, you’re gonna learn to discipline your image. You think I got where I am today because I dressed like Peter Pan over here?”

3. “Take a look at what I’m wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I’m wearing these bad boys? Forget about it.”
