Cobra Kai teaser trailer reignites the Karate Kid rivalry for sequel series

Show Caption

In the first footage from the upcoming "Cobra Kai" series on YouTube, Red, Danny (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka) face off once again. It's been almost 34 years since moviegoers last saw these two face off at the All Valley Karate Tournament in the hit 1984 film. The series, which will air on YouTube Red, shows where Johnny and Daniel are in their lives as adults as Johnny tries to reopen the Cobra Kai karate school.

Released in 1984, The Karate Kid told the story of high-school senior Daniel LaRusso, who moves with his mother from New Jersey to Los Angeles, where he nearly immediately comes into conflict with Johnny, the top student at the unscrupulous Cobra Kai dojo, and his gang.

Danny and Johnny, of course, fought each other in the classic 1984 film "The Karate Kid". In the tourney's parking lot shortly thereafter, during the beginning of the sequel, we then saw Johnny's Cobra Kai Sensei (Martin Kove) get his nose honked by Danny's maintenance man/karate master, Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita), causing all the stupid Cobra Kai to sulk away in shame, presumably leaving the dojo to die. This isn't the first time that Zabka and Macchio have crossed paths since The Karate Kid.

But that rivalry will be revisited now in Cobra Kai. Now, Daniel's a successful businessman and Johnny's a bit of a loser who's living in the past instead of moving on.

The market opened little changed on Thursday but started to fall in early trading and extended its losses throughout the morning. The market's turmoil began last Friday and has continued this week as investors anxious about early signs of inflation.

"We are not trained to be merciful here".

Long after Daniel-san triumphed over Johnny twice in the All Valley Karate Tournament, both martial artists have grown up and gone on to live different lives.

We also learn that Daniel's wife and business partner Amanda is being played by Courtney Henggler, while Mary Mouser plays their spitfire daughter, so you can bet they'll have a say in Daniel, now a successful auto dealer, getting back into the fighting game. This time, the question is not how to stop the school from reopening - but whether Johnny and Cobra Kai should be stopped at all.

Cobra Kai also stars Xolo Maridueña (Parenthood), Tanner Buchanan (Designated Survivor), Courtney Henggeler (Mom) and Mary Mouser (Freakish).
