After they left the air base, it was daytime. They drove over a small bridge, and in the next shot, they were on the other side of the same bridge but it was then much darker out as if they had been driving for a while. 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 am sorry to disagree with the comments of "drlawyer" since it only reflects the urge to see fight scenes. Karate kid 2 is a perfect sequel and shows the spiritual side of martial arts. Why measure a sequel with the 1st movie at all? Both, (Karate kid1 and Karate kid2) are unique and have complete story lines. Even for those who only saw the second movie, there is no gap due to the main flashbacks presented in the beginning of it. The acting is excellent and has no need for quick chopped up editing like now-a-days movies do. The grief and emotions connect with the viewer. I saw both movies about 20 times and could see them 20 times again.
