Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso’s martial arts rivalry belongs among the greatest in sports history: Balboa and Creed, Brady and Manning, Bosworth and Jackson, Kobe and Shaq, Bird and Magic. Lawrence and LaRusso are right there, man. Luckily, we’re about to see more of the two Karate Kid legends, in the new YouTube Red sequel series Cobra Kai.
Cobra Kai looks to continue the duo’s karate feud, but this time, the pair is grown up—rival senseis leading their pupils in their clashing styles and philosophies. Johnny is here with his “No Mercy” ethos and Danny is back with Mr. Miyagi’s more zen-like, spiritual focus. It remains to be seen if the iconic nemeses will come to blows in the new series.
If you ask us, it’s a requirement.
