    Theatrical trailer for The Karate Kid. In John G. Avildsen's The Karate Kid, Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and his mother (Randee Heller) move from New Jersey to Southern California, where he's not too keen about his new home--until he meets Ali (Elizabeth Shue), an attractive girl who seems to like him. But trouble looms when Ali's ex-boyfriend (William Zabka) and his gang of ruffians start tormenting Daniel. One day, as Daniel is suffering a beating at the hands of these louts, Mr. Miyagi (Noriyuki "Pat" Morita), an elderly Japanese handyman, comes to his rescue. To Daniel's amazement, Miyagi manages to take down the whole group all by himself using karate. Daniel begs to learn this ancient martial art, and soon Miyagi begins the boy's training, teaching Daniel that there is more to karate than fighting. Through a series of lessons, the wise mentor instills a sense of honor and nobility in his young pupil while preparing him for the ultimate karate showdown. However, as Daniel studies the discipline and art of karate, his enemies are learning a dirtier kind of fighting from Kreese (Martin Kove), a cold-blooded ex-marine. Ultimately, the boys will fight to the finish in the All Valley Karate Championship in a rousing and triumphant finale. Morita is a gem as the elderly father figure Miyagi, giving the character warmth, wisdom, and comic charm. Macchio's underdog character inspired an entire generation to run out and join the nearest karate school while chanting "wax on, wax off."moreless

    Movie

    1/1/84

    The Karate Kid is the classic 1984 martial arts film starring Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, a brave kid from New Jersey who's having trouble adjusting to his new home in Los Angeles. The merciless students of a local dojo beat him up whenever they have the chance, and Daniel knows too little of fighting to defend himself. After being rescued from a beating by the kind-hearted karate master Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita), Daniel begins training under the tutelage of the unconventional but highly knowledgeable sensei. Soon, a formal fight with the toughest fighter of the militaristic Cobra Kai dojo is arranged. Daniel only has two months to learn enough karate to defeat his opponent. This acclaimed film comes from director John G. Avildsen, who previously found fame directing another underdog story, Rocky. The Karate Kid is a thrilling coming-of-age story about one boy's journey to maturity and the unlikely father figure who leads him there.moreless
