When Miyagi introduces Daniel to the Miyagi family dojo, he shows him a picture of the founder of Miyagi Karate. "Miyagi Shimpo Sensei". The person in the picture is extremely similar to the founder of the modern Japanese martial art "Aikido", named "Morihei Ueshiba" See more »

[after Daniel has won his first tournament]
Hey Mr. Miyagi, you know I've been thinking.
About what, Daniel-San?
That we should come up with some kind of strategy.
My future, my whole tournament career.
Miyagi already have one.
Really? What is it?

They should have ended the Kid chronicles with this one
The Karate Kid part II should have been the end of the Karate Kid Story. It was an excellent film and the story was a perfect conclusion to the Daniel/Myagi friendship. The heroine Kumiko was perfect for Daniel and in my imagination he stays with her and Myagi stays with his love from childhood and then both of them bring their ladies to the states. KK III was awful and the Next Karate Kid was just idiotic. These lame sequels don't come close to this installment which should have been the last or at least, if a third installment was going to be done, it could of had the couples form the KKII and their new lives back in the states. I love Karate Kid stories and in my imagination the story ends with this wonderful sequel
