Save some for the tournament.
Hey, don't even bother.
He's been super aggro ever since the breakup.
Well, where's sensei? The tournament's gonna start soon.
- He'll be here.
- I don't know about that.
What are you talking about? I saw him last night at the mini mall.
I was buying A carton of milk.
ert: When I heard him in the parking lot, yelling.
nny: You want to be his father? Fine! Now who's pissed? Uh, Sensei? Everything all right? We're all gonna die, kid! We're all gonna die! Well, why didn't you tell us this earlier? I don't know.
I guess I'm just so used to seeing him drunk, it didn't seem like that big a deal.
Well, we're here, and he's not.
So it's officially a big deal.
What if something happened to him? - Like what? - I don't know.
Like he drove his car off a cliff, or he bought a gun and blew his brains out.
ha: No, sensei would never kill himself.
It's too pussy a move.
Whatever.
I mean, we're here.
We're gonna have to do it without him.
nny: Do what without me? Sensei.
We didn't think you were gonna show up.
I may not always win, but I never back out of a fight.
uel: Great.
Let's sign up.
ny: Not yet.
There's one more lesson I have to teach you.
an: All teams report to the locker room in five minutes.
You've all learned to strike first, to be aggressive, not be losers.
I've taught you to strike hard, put every ounce of your power behind everything you do.
But I haven't taught you the third rule of Cobra Kai No mercy.
The older you get, the more you're gonna learn that life isn't fair.
You wake up one morning feeling great, and then life throws a spinning heel kick to your balls.
Takes a big steaming shit in your mouth.
You get an F on a test.
You get suspended.
You fall in love with a girl, and some other dude comes and steals her away.
Your car gets set on fire.
Just when you think things are going good, everything falls apart.
That's how it goes.
Life shows no mercy, so neither do we.
We do whatever it takes to keep our heads above water.
We do whatever it takes to keep moving forward.
We do whatever it takes to win! Remember who you are.
You're badass.
You don't give a shit.
You kick ass.
You're Cobra Kai.
Cobra Kai! All right, guys, let's get down there and kick the shit out of everybody.
Yeah! No.
You're not wearing those.
Man: Well, it's a good thing today is Sunday because it is gonna be sunny outside here in LA So is this the plan for the whole day? 'Cause I was thinking maybe we could swing by the DMV or maybe a funeral.
You know, put a little pep in our step.
Come on, guys.
So your boyfriend turned out to be a jerk.
And your boyfriend turned out to be the son of your mortal enemy.
You can't expect me to go to this tournament all by myself.
You know how creeped out I get by karate moms.
Nobody's making you go.
LaRusso Auto Group is one of the main sponsors.
One of us has to be there.
You know what? Fine.
Fine.
I'm gonna be looking at boots on Zappos if anybody needs me.
Man: I'll go if you want to go.

Everyone I know is gonna be there.

Will it be Robby Keene, unaffiliated? And last but certainly not least, last year's champion, fighting out of Topanga Karate, Xander Stone! I love you, Xander! You're my boy.
I just wanted to say, even though I love to fight, we all need to fight together against hatred.
Look, I know this is probably the last thing you want to hear right now.
But I'm really sorry.
You're my oldest friend, and I never should have been hanging out with somebody like Yasmine in the first place.
You got that right.
All I know is, after that front wedgie, she's never gonna live that down.
- You saw that? - It's all over YouTube.
You really tore her a new vagina? You know, I got to admit, this is a pretty cool gi.
Thank you.
I mean, the snake's a little on the evil side, but I like the colors.
- I can probably get you one.
- Yeah, right.
My dad would have a heart attack.
Well, even if you don't join Cobra Kai, we could definitely use another girl out there.
der: And as I look around this arena, I pray for every race, religion, and gender that we can all live together in peace.
Please join me in a moment of silence as we strive to end intolerance in our time.

Oh, come on, you're not gonna cheer for your own student? No, he's not my student.
I--Amanda, I can't.
The kid lied to me.
So he lied.
So what? He's a kid, who obviously wasn't in it with Johnny, or he wouldn't be fighting his students.

What the hell are you thinking, man? What was I supposed to do, be a pussy? You all right, kid? bby: I'm fine.
ryl: With that disqualification, Keene earns a trip to the finals.
We'll see him back here after a short break.
You remembered to focus.
You had me up on that tree for hours.
Look, Robby, your dad and I, we have our issues, but you and him? That's another story.
I'm sorry I lied to you, Mr.
LaRusso.
I just wanted to get back at him.
I know.
But you're never gonna find balance that way.
You can't let that bad blood change who you are.
I'm not saying you need to like the guy.
I know I never will, but he--he is your father.
And believe me, you're lucky to have one.
You just got to try to remember, he's--he's not a monster.
He's just a guy with a lot of demons.
Mr.
Miyagi always told me there's no such thing as a bad student, only a bad teacher.
And your dad had the worst teacher there ever was.
It sent him down a wrong path.
But you don't have to go down that path.
Do you understand? You don't have to ever becomehim.
Trust me.
You let go of all that anger, and I guarantee you, no matter what happens tonight, you go home feeling great.
I don't know about that.
My shoulder's killing me.
I I don't think I can fight.
Well, we'll see about that.
Medic! Is there a medic? Man: The final match will begin shortly.
Sam.
Hey, I'll see you later.
Look, I'm sorry about what happened the other night.
You mean when you hit me? It was an accident.
I wasn't trying to hit you.
You shouldn't have been trying to hit anyone.
You--you bring some dude to the party the other night and expect me to be okay with that? I expect you to act like a normal person.
You don't even know Robby, and you were trying to start a fight with him? You have to strike first.
You don't wait for the enemy to attack.
The enemy? Do you even hear yourself? I don't even know who you are anymore.
Well, just wait.
Watch what I do to Robby in the finals.
Hey, Mom? I really need to go, but, um, I can Uber.
No.
No, baby, I'll come with you.
It's okay.
We'll, uh--we'll just text your dad on the way.
Come on, Anthony, we got to go.
It's just starting to get good.
Are you feeling any pain here? Uh, yeah.
Does it hurt when I do this? - Yeah.
- Okay, are you ready? I'm sorry.
It's a slight anterior dislocation, so I just popped it back into place, but you're gonna feel it for the next few weeks.
Okay, thanks, Doctor.
Appreciate it.
Sure.
Listen, you don't need to fight.
Yes, I do.
I'm gonna have to face him sooner or later.
Might as well be today.
This is it, folks.
The moment we've all been waiting for.
The final match to determine who will be victor and champion.
Will it be Miguel Diaz from Cobra Kai Karate? That's my son! Will it be Robby Keene, unaffili-- Daniel LaRusso's gonna coach? Daniel LaRusso is gonna coach! ryl: I'm sorry, folks, there's been a change.
Robby Keene will now be fighting for Miyagi-Do Karate with former champion Daniel LaRusso as his sensei! How about that? Good luck, gentlemen.
What do you think you're doing? Coaching my student.
Somebody needs to be there for him.
- You think this is funny? - Do you see me laughing? You're gonna regret this when it's over.
Yeah, right.
Like this'll ever be over.
All right, senseis, let's take your corners.
Remember, no aggression.
Just let him come to you.
- All right? - Okay.
You know what to do.
You've trained all year for this.
Don't worry, Sensei.
I won't let LaRusso or that kid go home a winner.
Face me.

Robby, come here.
- I'm gonna tell him to end it.
- No.
No, no, no, no, no.
No, no, let me finish.
Okay, just-- be careful.
I found his weakness, Sensei.
It's his shoulder.
Look, I know we want to win, but it's got to be the right way.
We don't have to fight dirty.
Dirty? There's nothing dirty about winning, Sensei.
You taught me that.
Don't worry.
I got this.
No mercy.
ryl: Whoever wins the next point will be our new champion! It's 2-2.
Next point wins.

Without further ado, let me present the trophy to this year's new champion, Miguel Diaz and the Cobra Kai dojo! Yeah! Miguel! Is there anything you want to say to the people, son? I just want to say that if it wasn't for my sensei, I wouldn't be here, so this is for Sensei Johnny Lawrence and Cobra Kai! Yeah! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai! Robby.
I I'm--I'm sorry.
It's okay, Dad.
It's okay.
Let's go, Mr.
LaRusso.
You got what you wanted, Johnny.
You won.
Congratulations.
You were amazing.
- Thanks, Ma.
- Hey, nice job.
Miggy.
Miggy! Are you okay? Uh, yes, Mom.
Just, um, looking for someone, okay? - One minute.
- Hey, man! There he is! Listen.
I'm reconsidering joining Cobra Kai.
I'm still not into the idea of getting hit in the face and all, but I respect the safety-in-numbers aspect of joining a gang.
Uh, have you-- have you seen Sam? Oh, yeah.
Pretty sure she left a while ago.
Okay.
Well, hey, great job not sucking.
Thanks, man.
Oh, man.
Hiyah! Second place.
I came so close.
Yeah, well, you fought with honor, and he didn't, so no matter what that trophy says, you're the real winner.
You should be proud of yourself.
I know I am.
Thanks.
I'm sure my dad's happy too.
Now Cobra Kai's gonna take over karate in the valley.
Yeah.
Right.
Over my dead body.
Where are we going? Come on.
Whose cars are these? Don't worry about it.
Just follow me.
This where you bury your bodies or something? I know I said you have to let go of your anger and show forgiveness, but when the fight comes to you, you have to be ready to fight back.
And to do that, we'll need more students.
Welcome to Miyagi-Do Karate.
Miguel? Congratulations.
You did what I always thought you could do.
You won.
Cobra Kai is back where it belongs.
Back on top.
Everyone closed the book on us.
They thought we were done.
But now they see That the real story's only just begun.
