The “Cobra Kai” TV series is the sequel to the 1984 cult film “The Karate Kid” about the confrontation between two teenagers Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. According to the plot of the movie, the guys competed both in school and in karate competitions.

Now, not only revolving around Johnny’s life, the plot of the TV series tells about the confrontation between Cobra Kai and other karate schools.
