Oh the internet is filled with surprising things and wonderful theories! Earlier I found this video about how Daniel from Karate Kid was the real bully in the movie. Or as J. Matthew Turner put it, “Daniel LaRusso is a violent sociopath who picks every fight in The Karate Kid.”
Through out this video Mister Turner points out a more in-depth look into the Karate Kid and why some people think Daniel LaRusso is the villain in the story line, rather than Johnny Lawrence. The whole thing made me laugh, but it did have some good points and made a lot of sense. So watch this video and leave a comment down below to let me know what you think.
fatherless teenager faces his moment of truth in THE KARATE KID. Daniel (Ralph Macchio) arrives in Los Angeles from the east coast and faces the difficult task of making new friends. However, he becomes the object of bullying by the Cobras, a menacing gang of karate students, when he strikes up a relationship with Ali (Elisabeth Shue), the Cobra leader’s ex-girlfriend. Eager to fight back and impress his new girlfriend but afraid to confront the dangerous gang, Daniel asks his handyman Miyagi (Noriyuki ‘Pat’ Morita), whom he learns is a master of the martial arts, to teach him karate. Miyagi teaches Daniel that karate is a mastery over the self, mind, and body and that fighting is always the last answer to a problem. Under Miyagi’s guidance, Daniel develops not only physical skills but also the faith and self-confidence to compete despite tremendous odds as he encounters the fight of his life in the exciting finale to this entertaining film.
