    Many people want an English government, many people also want a Yorkshire government, the way we are going both may become a reality.

    and the same is true of the karate Kid franchise etc. They aren't designed to work they are designed to entertain people.

    One take away from part 2 was even with his extensive knowledge, Miyagi only taught Daniel a portion.

    Notice any similarities between the opening scene and the opening scenes from Alice?

    In all fairness, the storyline from the beginning of 1 until the end of 2 was about 10 months. 1 starts right around the beginning of school (september) and 2 starts right after prom (excluding the opening sequence). They were only in Okinawa for a week or so in 2.

    So I don’t think it was enough time to convey all his knowledge.

    And have fun with these stupid threads. They’ not meant to be taken seriously, although a few apparently haven’t gotten that memo judging from some responses here and the other one.

    But its supposed to be "realistic" fiction. Unlike Mary Poppins which is purely make believe, there is no way in real life that you will be able to open an umbrella and fly, the Karate Kid is supposed to be a story that could happen in real life, even though it didn't.

    All very reasonable questions.

    He was feeling let down by authority, didn't trust them. No way he was going to "the man" for help. It's only when the mysterious outsider approached that he found someone he could trust.

    Always a sufficient answer, IMO.

    They got closer to this truth in the remake. Of course, to avoid lawsuits they had to obscure the identities further.

    I feel like several people keep missing the humor in these threads, @PhotonGuy.

    I read this as sarcastically as possible, so that it finishes with "and everything short of that is absolute, gospel truth." :D

    Well, to be clear, there's nothing funny about Elisabeth Shue.

    So than Daniel and Miyagi could go to the authorities together. The thing is, I've never heard anybody question about why Daniel didn't press charges after the Cobra Kai beat him up at the fence but I've heard it said many times that Miyagi should've been charged for beating up the Cobra Kai. The fact of the matter is they attacked him first, Miyagi was defending himself. Also, I don't see how a court would side with the Cobra Kai when it was five big teenagers against an old man. Points that people keep missing.

    Ali was a snot. Seventeen year old girls can be very destructive, I speak from my own experience.

    Well, I certainly did some damage when I was 17. Mostly to walls, as I recall.

    Because that is Daniel's and Miyagi's version of the story.

    Truth is....Miyagi was a member of the Yakuza and had Daniel pour water on the Cobra Kai and then lead them to his trap he had set for them.

    Do you think it was just a coincidence that Miyagi was there?123
