Trivia

Ralph Macchio (Daniel-san) pronounces the word "karate" in a neutral way, similar to how Mr. Miyagi says it. However, in The Karate Kid Part III (1989) he goes back using a more American pronunciation, like he did in the first movie. See more »

They should have ended the Kid chronicles with this one
7 June 2001 | by (West Valley) – See all my reviews

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
