THE KARATE KID

There is more to karate than fighting. This is the lesson that Daniel (Macchio), a San Fernando Valley teenager, is about to learn from a most unexpected teacher: Mr. Miyagi (Morita), an elderly handyman who also happens to be a master of martial arts. When he rescues Daniel from the Cobra Kai, a vicious gang of karate school bullies, Miyagi instils in his young friend the importance of honour and confidence as well as skills in self-defense, vital lessons that will be called into play when a hopelessly outclassed Daniel faces Johnny, the sadistic leader of the Cobra Kai, in a no-holds barred karate tournament for the championship of the valley.

John Kreese (Martin Kove) is back and more dangerous than ever! Blaming Daniel (Macchio) and Miyagi (Morita) for the loss of his karate school, the revenge-obsessed sensei asks evil martial arts master Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) to help him win back the All Valley Championship and avenge his honour.
