Summary: Many years after the events of Karate Kid 3, Johnny Lawrence has revived and expanded Cobra Kai, starting dojos throughout southern California and reaping the rewards of his success. A chance encounter with Daniel LaRusso uncovers the Cobra Kai story he never knew, and the effect it has had on Daniel’s life.
Recommendation: Oh, oh, oh, this was delicious! Things go a little worse for Daniel and things go a little better for Johnny but they are still so very much themselves and it is beautiful and heartbreaking by turns.
