Thirty years after their final confrontation at the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, Johnny Lawrence is at rock-bottom as an unemployed handyman haunted by his wasted life. However, when Johnny rescues a bullied kid, Miguel, from bullies, he is inspired to restart the notorious Cobra Kai dojo. However, this revitalization of his life and related misunderstandings find Johnny restarting his old rivalry with Daniel LaRousso, a successful businessman who may be happily married, but is missing an essential balance in life since the death of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi. Meanwhile, even as this antipathy festers, it finds itself reflected in their protegees as Miguel and his comrades are gradually poisoned by Cobra Kai's thuggish philosophy. Meanwhile, while Daniel's daughter, Samantha, finds herself in the middle of this conflict amidst false friends, Johnny's estranged miscreant son, Robby, finds himself inadvertently coming under Daniel's wing and flourishes in ways worthy of Mr. Miyagi.

Cobra Kai is a worthy continuation of The Karate Kid!!!!
3 May 2018 | by udderlystoopidSee all my reviews

The Karate Kid III and The Next Karate Kid were awful. I consider The first film and the second to stand on their own. Cobra kai, unlike the unworthy sequels, is definitely worthy of Its production. I really hope that the second season is given a green light quickly, it's such a great experience. I watched the entire series in one day, I would have watched it in one direct sitting if possible. The story line has already been laid out for everyone here by the trailers and others comments. I would just add that if you're a Karate Kid fan, even if only the first two films, I cannot see how you would be disappointed with this series. It's extremely well done, pays homage to the original film in many great ways and stands so well 34 years later! Highly recommended!!!!
