    I had heard that John Kreese told Johnny and the rest of his dojo not to touch Daniel while he was training at the request of his Sensei. However Daniel didn't make it easy on them as he was mocking them in front of his girlfriend. That's pretty low.

    Saw this in the theaters with my father when I was 11 years old On a Saturday Monrning cause there wouldn't be any large crowds cause I don't do so we around so many people . And I still remember the price of admission was $3.50 . My dad bought us a large popcorn and large coca cola . Then on that following Monday he enrolled me into Kung - Fu I trained for 7 years and during those 7 years my father attended every lesson I went to . He also went to every Ballerina class my sister went to . I really miss him beyond any measure .

    I liked the original film and I love the reboot on VNchannel but as someone that grew up street fighting and wrestling and later trained as a boxer with some Muay Thai thrown in I can't watch this stuff without being critical of the fighting itself but I love the story line!

    Tournaments then would have disqualified for an illegal kick but there would not have bern a final kick since Lawrwnces sweep kick on a downed oponent would have ended it all right there. Good story though.

    There’s a minor continuity error because when Daniel wins his second tournament in KKIII, the announcer says he’s the first to win a tournament two years in a row (84-85)but Johnny won two years in a row previously in 82-83.

    Not only was Daniel's final shot illegal, which should have resulted in a win for Johnny; but his actions since then have been an insult to his sensei.

    In the real world, that kick is easily defended against or avoided, and leaves the kicker vulnerable. That’s why you’ll almost never see a strictly karate guy as an mma champ, the exception being a superman like Chung Lee

    What is bothering me this whole time is that in most Karate Tournaments it is illegal to punch the head but NOT illegal to kick the head. I never thought that it was a movie mistake to begin with and now it is like a running gag. Just watch Karate matches online. There are different styles, full contact, half contact etc. but most of them allow kicks to the head. Nonetheless a series that I enjoy deeply. Just wanted to share my point of view.
