Ten hours of the Karate Kid II drumming

Wow! I guess I never saw Karate Kid II. That fight clip was painfully bad fight choreography - not that the character’s were mismatched in skill, but that the actors were way more mismatched in skill than the character’s were supposed to be. Yuji Okumoto has to spend so much time stumbling and moving slowly to avoid the rather obvious fact his character should be easily beating Ralph Machio’s.

Looks like a martial artist acting vs an actor doing martial arts. Cobra Kai has been really fun in part because they really embrace the “Daniel was a bully” perspective and not some sort of Karate savant.
