Wax on, wax off. This week, Sensei Laura and Mike-san revisit the 1984 classic, Karate Kid! That’s right, the movie that brought karate mainstream, spawned three sequels, one remake, and possibly one of the best Netflix shows around. But does the OG movie have what it takes to stand the test of time? Or is it just another case of nostalgia making us remember it for more than punches and kicks?

Release Date: June 22, 1984

Directed by:
John G. Avildsen

Ralph Macchio
Pat Morita
Elisabeth Shue
