One of the best movies of all time. Directed by John Avildsen, this 1984 drama centers around a displaced youth who seeks self-defense training from an aged maintenance man named Mister Miyagi to defend himself in a Karate Tournament against a San Fernando Valley biker gang. Most of the movie was made on location throughout the San Fernando Valley in 1983.
The Karate Kid is one of the most well-known dramas of the 1980s.

A poem by Jane Yolen, about the Japanese Kung Fu is not about fighting or bullying. It's about strong empowerment.

Original poem:
I am wind
I am wall
I am wave

I rise, I fall
I am crane
In lofty flight

Training that
I need not fight

I am tiger
I am tree
I am flower
I am knee
I am elbow
I am hands
Taught to do
The heart's commands

Not to bully
Not to fight
Dragon left
And leopard right
Wind and wave
Tree and flower
Chop

Kick

Peace

Power

One of those stupid kids who ruin a show by doing a bunch of high kicks and then hitting you in the face with an elbow because they think they're God damn ninjas. They males are easily recognizable by their girl-cut designer jeans and effeminate haircuts. They are noted for not having any rhythm as they do not actually listen to music.

Note #1: they are not ninjas.
Note #2: they are as lame as Ralph Macchio
I'd do something about that damn karate kid who kicked me, but I'm too drunk and out of shape. Curses!
