Noriyuki 'Pat' Morita as Martial arts master Miyagi and Ralph Macchio star in director John G. Avildsen's KARATE KID trilogy. Contains THE KARATE KID, THE KARATE KID PART 2, and KARATE KID PART 3.
In THE KARATE KID, a young teenager who is plagued by attacks and cruel jokes by a gang of vengeful kids, takes karate lessons in the hope that it will make him strong. In the end he learns the more important lesson, that fighting is the last answer to a problem, not the first.
THE KARATE KID PART 2 continues the story of a young man growing up under the guidance of his Japanese mentor. Daniel and Miyagi travel to Okinawa where they find they are no longer part of a game played by the rules.
In THE KARATE KID PART 3, Daniel decides not to compete in a karate championship and he becomes the target of a vicious competitor who wants the title back. But when the relentless abuse becomes blackmail, Daniel goes against the sound advice of Miyagi and enters the competition, thus alienating the only person who can help him.
