When The Karate Kid was released in 1984, no one could have guessed that the story of a plucky new kid with a hot temper and his unorthodox adopted mentor would spawn several sequels, a reboot, a television show and multiple video games. For decades, people have continued to adore the enduring story of Daniel LaRusso, from his relationship with Ali to his rivalry with the dastardly Cobra Kai dojo.
Though the Karate Kid universe now includes a whole host of villains, numerous storylines and characters scattered across various countries, it began with a single love triangle, an important karate competition, and two karate mentors with dramatically different teaching styles and morals. How much do you remember about this classic story? Test your knowledge below!
