The writers were divided between doing the storyline of Part II on Miyagi's hometown or Kreese's revenge. As a compromise, they decided to do Part II on Miyagi to give him more focus and to Part III on Kreese's revenge. See more »

[after Daniel has won his first tournament]
Hey Mr. Miyagi, you know I've been thinking.
About what, Daniel-San?
That we should come up with some kind of strategy.
My future, my whole tournament career.

Underrated - defending the sequel to the first original classic sports martial arts movie
This was really my first film I saw as a kid before I even saw the first one. I thought it was more an action film, but it was less action film. I love this film it is a good sequel, the last good film in the franchise after the remake. Good fighting movie about how to defend your life. I love the Japanese culture used in this film. Tough it was filmed in Hawaii I love the filming locations. I love this film to death it is my second favorite film in The Karate Kid franchise. I love this film to death.
I love the hurricane scene in the film in which Daniel safes a young girl from the storm he was a hero in this movie. I love that Daniel saved old people from been ripped off from Chozen Toguchi. I love that Mr. Miyagi broke a desk and saved his enemy Sato from hurricane that was great in the film.
Yuji Okumoto did a good job he was good villain. The fight sequence on the end was great I enjoy it. Danny Kamekona was good as Sato long enemy of Mr. Miyagi. Tamlyn Tomita was really beautiful as Kumiko. I like the love and romance between Daniel and Kumiko. I love the song Glory of Love by Peter Cetera used in the movie. It is a shame that a lot of actors including the director died in real life who worked on this movie and are no longer with us anymore. I grew up with this film. Defending this sequel.
The last scene in which Daniel fights Chozen was a bad-ass fight sequence the best about the film. Really bloody match both actors bleed it was believable enough. Great choreographer for the fight sequences, still excellent direction by John G. Avildsen. There could be more fight sequences but they only use like three fights in the film not a bad one.
The Karate Kid Part II (1986) is the only good sequel I hated 3 and 4 the remake I like for Jackie Chan. In my Blu-ray collection I only have Part 1, 2 and the remake I don't have all 5 films. 3 and 4 were absolutely horrible.
Still good music score by Bill Conti, Stallone couldn't use Bill Conti for Rocky IV, because Bill was busy with this movie. So Sly choose new composer for his Rocky movie. This sequel made a ton's of money and it was even more successful than the original film. There was animated series in 1989 before horrendous Part III come out.
R.I.P. John G. Avildsen, Pat Morita, Bruce Malmuth, Danny Kamekona, Nobu McCarthy and Eddie Smith.
