About the Movie

One of the biggest hits of the blockbuster summer of 1984, “The Karate Kid” is an endearing coming-of-age, underdog story following the friendship of a bullied teenager Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and his martial arts trainer Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita). Through Miyagi’s teaching, Daniel prepares to take on arch-rival Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in a karate tournament. Along the way, he learns life lessons, overcomes adversity and ultimately faces his opponent in an epic match.

The characters have become pop culture icons and the story continues to resonate with generations of movie lovers.

The film spawned a franchise of merchandise, three sequels, an animated television series and a 2010 remake. The series “Cobra Kai,” currently airing on Nexflix, reunites Macchio and Zabka as their rival characters from the original movie. The series has received several Primetime Emmy nominations and has inspired a new generation to rediscover the films.
