Decades after their 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament bout, a middle-aged Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence find themselves martial-arts rivals again.
Johnny Lawrence confirms the long held belief that Daniel LaRusso's crane kick, that won him the tournament in The Karate Kid (1984), was an illegal move and should have resulted in at least a warning (or had him disqualified with Johnny then being crowned champion of the tournament).
Mr. Miyagi's first name changes in between The Next Karate Kid and this series. In the former his first name is stated as being Keisuke. In this series, his grave shows his first name as being Nariyoshi.
