Starring: Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, Elisabeth Shue
The 80s movie that inspired millions of kids around the world to take up martial arts.
Daniel LaRusso (Macchio) has just moved from New Jersey to Reseda, CA (a neighborhood in Los Angeles) and is finding it hard to acclimatise to life in the new city. He is promised a swimming pool and a great apartment but when they get there, it’s anything but.
He meets a beautiful blond girl (Elisabeth Shue) but encounters a gang of bullies (one of them her ex boyfriend) who all practise karate at the local Cobra Kai dojo and make his life hell. This further dampens misery into Daniel’s life as he just wants to go home. He is continually bullied and is afraid to show his face around the high school.
He then meets mentor/handyman Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) who takes the naive Daniel under his wing and shows him Karate and life aren’t all about power and strength. It’s something deep within you’re soul that makes you what you are.
Daniel is the underdog and faces the biggest challenge of his life...WIN and he can rejoice forever knowing he beat the bullies...lose? They’ll never let him forget it!!
