118: “Strike First, Strike Hard, No Mercy” – The Karate Kid

If you’re an ’80s kid, you can remember karate being the chosen after-school activity of pretty much everyone in your class (and likely yours too). You can thank THE KARATE KID for getting everybody in a gi.

In our latest episode, we revisit the original 1984 film in the hit franchise that would span decades, as well as multiple sequels and reboots, discussing how this movie set the formula for nearly every mentor-protege story that would follow. We’re also happily joined by Becky’s big sister Chelsea, who shares why she’s been a big fan of this movie since she was a kid. (It only has a little to do with crushing on a baby-faced Ralph Macchio.)
