Tamlyn Tomita became great friends with Nobu McCarthy on the set of the film, effectively adopting the older actress as her mentor. Tomita was greatly affected by McCarthy's sudden death at the age of 67 in 2002 when they were making Gaijin - Ama-me Como Sou (2005) together in Brazil. See more »
During the times when characters are speaking in Japanese, in the Spanish translation version of the movie it is translated into gibberish. They simply try to sound Japanese, but in reality are just making noise. 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.

I can't tell you how good it made me feel to recapture the joy I first experienced in the theater. I was 12 years old when this came out. The story and plot are simple, and the lessons are very clear. They definitely don't make films like this nowadays. Memories of me sitting in the theater alongside my grandmother, eating loads of buttery popcorn, and telling her about all the good scenes (she couldn't see well)
I have seen this movie over 200 times, and never get tired of it. I recommend viewing both The Karate Kid, and the sequel to at least get the full effect.
Awesome 80's flick, and one I'm proud to own. Five stars.
