Well, I'm back in black Yes, I'm back in black Come on.
Get the stuff, and let's get out of here.
Let's go.
We don't have all day.
Hee-yah! Oh, my God, Rick.
Are you okay? Robby, what is wrong with you? What's wrong with me? You haven't been here in days.
I thought someone broke in.
Okay.
Okay.
Okay.
I'm sorry.
I just came to grab a few things, um, 'cause, uh, Rick is flying me to Cabo.
Cabo adjacent.
Okay.
Wait.
You're going to Mexico? Uh-uh.
With this guy? For how long? I mean, we have rent to pay, and I don't have Don't worry about that because, Rick, you're paying this month, right? I got you, pal.
Okay.
Oh.
Just what I need.
When are you coming back? A few days.
Um, week and a half, tops.
Yeah.
So you have the whole place to yourself.
Don't party too hard.
I'll call you tomorrow, okay, sweetie? I love you.
Hey, you hurt her, next time you won't get up.
Oh! Big shoes to fill.
Hey, about time I heard from you.
Did you miss me? A lot.
Please don't hang up.
Aisha doesn't know I'm using her phone.
What do you want? I know I screwed up.
I made a mistake.
I just want things to go back to the way they were.
Yeah, well, it's not that easy.
Look, I'll do anything.
I I can't stop thinking about you.
Look, Miguel, I I can't talk right now.
Can you just tell Aisha to call me back? I thought it was Aisha.
You can talk to whoever you want.
Hey, guys.
All right.
Perfect attendance on day one.
So what's our first lesson? You'll see.
Follow me.
Come on.
If we're gonna play in the sand, can't we just go to the beach? No, not today.
It's been a long time since this dojo's had more than one student, and you figure with two people, you have twice the defense, right? Wrong.
One of the cornerstones of Miyagi-Do Karate is, "Always moving in a circle.
" And with the wheel technique, you'll soon see that two people could be as strong as 20.
Now, are you ready? Yes, Mr.
LaRusso.
Let's do this.
All right.
Let's get in the circle.
Face me.
Bow.
Face each other.
Bow.
Uh-huh.
No, we're always looking for new recruits.
We have a 4:00 p.
m.
class and a 5:00 p.
m.
class, but they're filling up fast.
No, no, we accept boys and girls.
Gender what? Hey, is this a prank call? What do you think? Shit-head One and Shit-head Two? I was thinking more Mary-Kate and Ass-hat.
Well, I'm Did I say you can speak? Guys, look, they're just messing with you.
Thanks, man.
Besides, everyone knows your names are Ass-face and Douchebag.
Ooh.
Dibs on Ass-face.
Jesus Christ! Who's that? I don't know.
Hey, uh, can I help you, sir? No.
But maybe I can help you.
Hey.
Uh, Sensei.
What the hell is wrong with you? I said tomorrow.
Oh.
Tomorrow, today, who can keep track, huh? Nice.
Now, show me the wheel.
No, no, no.
You both have to be perfectly in-sync.
Otherwise, this technique doesn't work.
"Technique?" This feels more like a dance.
Yeah, at what point do we do the hokey pokey and turn ourselves around? Okay, guys, trust me.
You both master this, no one's gonna mess with you.
Come on.
Let's try it again.
And down, Sam, left arm up.
No, no, together.
At the same time.
How are we supposed to do it at the same time when we can't see each other? You need to sense what your partner is doing, even if you can't see them.
How exactly are we supposed to do that? The Force? Shoot, I gotta go help your mom out with something.
Just feel it, all right? I'll be back as soon as I can.
All right, keep it up.
Class, we have a visitor.
This is Mr.
Kreese.
He's just an observer.
Pretend like he's not even here.
Mr.
Diaz, warm them up.
Fighting positions! Front kick.
Forward strike.
Side dab.
What the hell was that? We're just messing around.
We have 11 and a half months until the next All Valley.
Yeah, besides, we already know how to kick ass.
Oh, yeah, really, huh? So you know everything.
There's nothing left to learn, huh? What's so funny, Ms.
Robinson? I'm sorry, Sensei, you just wouldn't understand.
Try me.
It's a snake-doo.
What's a "snake-doo"? Quiet! 5:00 a.
m.
tomorrow morning.
Corner of Fulton and Raymer.
You don't show, and you're off the team.
Class dismissed.
Wait.
Let me get this straight.
Vic took Tom Cole's offer without even letting us counter.
And he poached our top two sales people.
Unbelievable.
And I'm sure it's no coincidence he's wiped out our sales staff the last week of the month.
I know him.
Look, if we're gonna meet our quota, you and I are gonna have to pick up any slack and focus our attention here this week.
I just started teaching Samantha and Robby.
I can't quit on day one.
But I thought balance was your thing.
All right, how many cars do we need to sell to hit the quota? Ten.
All right, call Sheila to bring over a suit from my closet.
We are hitting that quota today.
Babe, I know you wanna get back to your dojo, but you can't sell ten cars in one day.
No, I can't.
But we can.
She's a beaut, ain't she? If you're looking for a deal, you hit the jackpot.
Just looking.
Hey, no charge for looking.
But what are you looking for exactly? It's got 5.
1 surround sound, high-res monitors, and comprehensive safety features.
Sounds great.
What's under the hood? 2.
0 Turbo I4.
But you seem more like a V8 man to me, right? You know, I was there in '84.
That kick was awesome.
Thanks.
I bet people bother you to do it all the time.
Oh, it doesn't bother him at all.
In fact, would you like a picture with him doing it? Yeah.
Thought so.
Say cheese! Here's the best I can do.
Sir, we thought you were serious.
I am serious, as a heart attack.
Well, then, it looks like we're not making a deal today.
I wanna thank you for giving us the opportunity for your business.
Hold on.
Whoo! To Danny and Mandy.
Still the best sales team in the Valley.
Uh-huh.
That was fun.
You were great.
Mmm.
No, you were great.
Mmm.
Seriously, sometimes, I forget what a natural salesman you are.
I just wish I was as natural at teaching karate.
Oh, come on.
Miyagi-Do's been open for one day.
Don't be so hard on yourself.
It's just Mr.
Miyagi I mean, he was such a great teacher.
He had all these tricks to help me learn, and I I don't know.
Okay.
Well, come up with your own tricks.
You don't have to be Mr.
Miyagi.
You just have to be Mr.
LaRusso.
Okay, I'm gonna go tell the service team they can go home early.
Thanks.
Don't add too much water.
You wanna make it nice and thick.
Sensei, why are we mixing cement? No questions.
All right.
Keep stirring.
Their muscles are gonna ache, sure, but if you wanna make them tough, you gotta give them something to be afraid of.
No one is afraid of a little cement.
They will be.
Thanks, Cutter.
I'll take it from here.
Hey, you didn't say nothing about no kids, Johnny.
Hey, you want your bar tab paid off or not? If you get caught, you take the heat.
What the Hey, um, was the first turn clockwise or counterclockwise? I don't remember.
What's the point even? How's a stupid dance gonna save us in a fight? Dad? Dad, what are you doing? Mr.
Miyagi built this a few years before he died.
He said it was a monument to balance.
But today, it's not gonna balance bonsais.
It's gonna help you two learn the wheel technique.
Hop in.
You actually want us to get in there? Yeah.
Could have told us to bring our swimsuits.
Come on.
A little water never hurt anyone.
All right.
Nice and easy.
Oh Oh, it's cold.
Come on.
It's not that bad.
Get on each side.
Oh, my God, Dad.
What did I just step on It's nothing.
It's nothing.
Don't worry about it.
If we can't do this on the ground, how are we supposed to do it on this? On the ground, it's hard to sense when your partner is moving.
On that deck, trust me, you're gonna feel it right away.
Come on.
Get up there.
Whoa! There you go.
Easy, easy.
Just relax.
All right.
Find your balance.
Dad Whoa.
Find your balance, Sam.
You're all right.
Okay? There you go.
Okay, Robby.
Sense each other.
There you go.
Okay, take your starting positions.
There you go.
Good.
There you go.
There you go.
Whoa.
Whoa! Whoa.
Whoa! Whoa! All right.
All right.
Not a bad start.
Okay? You're just finding your footing.
I don't feel like we're finding anything.
Dad, when was the last time this thing was cleaned? Come on, guys.
Get back up.
That was great.
Come on.
You think winning the All Valley gives you the right to goof off? Well, I got news for you.
Winning one championship don't mean squat.
A true champion never stops training.
You gotta keep moving forward, or else you could get stuck exactly where you are.
It's like the cement in this truck.
If that drum doesn't start turning, the cement inside will harden and get stuck.
Is that what you want to happen to you? No, Sensei! Good.
Then climb up, get inside, and make it spin.
What? Sensei, we're sorry for messing around.
We learned our lesson.
Get in! Sensei, this seems kind of dangerous.
I mean, the fumes alone Quiet! This man led you to the mountain top, and you question him? Look at you.
Look at all of you.
I can't believe this pathetic pack of pussies competed in the All Valley, and let alone won.
It's an absolute miracle.
And who's responsible for that miracle? Johnny Lawrence.
The best student in the history of Cobra Kai.
My student.
You were Sensei's Sensei? You better believe it, kid.
And I tell you I've never trained a tougher student in my whole life.
So if you know what's good for you, you better listen to every goddamn word he says.
I'll do it, Sensei.
Holy shit.
All right, now remember Remember, use all your senses.
Feel where your partner is.
This is weird.
Don't just stand there.
You wanna get stuck? Move! All right.
Come on.
You ready? Yeah.
One.
Two.
Three.
Hey, hey.
Slow down.
Yeah, I felt that.
Thanks.
Come on.
Get pushing.
Let's go, guys! Move it! Come on! All of you, let's go! You ever done this before? Don't worry.
I got this.
Come on.
Don't just stand there.
Let's go.
Let's go.
Come on.
All right.
There we go! There we go! A little bit faster.
There you go! There you go! Keep pushing! All together! Whoa! Okay, all right.
Come on.
Get back up.
Don't be discouraged.
You're getting better each time.
Come on.
Get up, man.
Keep going.
Keep pushing.
Come on! Let's go! You got this, guys.
Let's go! Keep going! All right! Keep going! Keep going! Keep going! That it.
That's it! That's it! That's it! Come on! Come on! Yes! Good going.
Good going.
Yes! Huh? You should all be proud of yourselves.
I know I'm proud.
Your parents would be proud, too, if you told them what we did here today, which we won't.
You pushed forward like champions.
Never stopping.
Never being satisfied.
Never giving up.
And if you keep pushing and keep moving forward, you're gonna go to places you never even dreamed of.
Hey, took me forever to dry off, but today was awesome.
Yeah, I think we finally got it.
Yeah.
Hey, do you need a ride? Uh No.
Uh, look, I'm sorry about earlier.
I just Dealing with some stuff at home.
My mom took off.
I guess she missed some bills.
But I'll see you tomorrow? Yeah, sure.
Cool.
Not too bad for a newbie, huh? Maybe I will earn my way onto this wall yet.
Hey, Dad.
Yeah? Do you have a second? Sure.
What's up? Uh, how much do you know about Robby's home life? Hey, Robby.
Hey.
Mr.
LaRusso, what are you doing here? Well, I could lie and say I was in the neighborhood.
Is your mom home? Hey, listen.
It's all right.
Okay? Oh, the poor thing.
I can't believe he's been living by himself.
I know.
You know, we have the space.
I could put an air mattress in the guest house until we get some real furniture.
All right, slow down.
Slow down.
Yes, obviously, he can stay here tonight, but if we're talking about long term, we're gonna have to talk to his parents.
I tried calling his mother.
She's completely unreachable.
He has a father.
I gotta tell you, Johnny, I didn't see that coming.
I mean, the whole thing could have gone south real quick.
Somebody could have died.
Takes guts as a Sensei to put your students through that.
I know what I'm doing.
Didn't say you didn't.
Thanks for giving an extra kick in the pants today.
They needed it.
Anything I can do to help.
What do you say you and I, uh, go grab a couple of tall boys? My treat.
No, I'm good.
Come on.
You can walk me through tomorrow's lesson.
You're coming back tomorrow, huh? Well, if that's okay with you.
Sensei, you home? I used your spare key to drop off some food.
My mom doesn't want you eating Slim Jims for breakfast anymore.
Okay.
Robby Keene? Hey, why don't you say it to my face next time! It's called America, big boy, love it or leave it.
He's a real son of a bitch, isn't he? Dead, my ass.
Well, what do you know? The gang's all back together.
Well, almost all of us.
My condolences.
You're lucky he's not here.
How are your knuckles doing there, Kreese? What's this, all part of your new Cobra Kai, Johnny? You don't know what you're talking about, man.
Yeah, right.
I've seen plenty.
Well, maybe you wanna see a little bit more.
Because this man is gonna make Cobra Kai bigger and better than ever.
What are you even doing here? I came to ask you a question, and I got my answer.
You're both in for a rude awakening.
I'm Daniel LaRusso.
What the hell? Don't be a snake in the grass.
Son of a bitch.
Be a champion.
You guys, have you seen the commercial? Sam's dad started his own dojo, and he disses Cobra Kai.
Tweet us at #TeamMiyagiDo.
This is an act of war.
It demands an immediate response.
I know what it needs.
LaRusso training your son like his own.
It doesn't look good.
I know exactly what I'm gonna do.
