The writers were divided between doing the storyline of Part II on Miyagi's hometown or Kreese's revenge. As a compromise, they decided to do Part II on Miyagi to give him more focus and to Part III on Kreese's revenge. See more »

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.
