Karate Kid Gifts
Do you have what it takes to go head to head with some of the most skilled (and dangerous) athletes from Cobra Kai? Well, do you have what it takes to stomach doing all of those confounding chores for Mr. Miyagi until he finally fesses up and lets you know that you've been learning all about karate the whole time?
These are the kinds of things that you get to live for when you're living in the world of the Karate Kid! Of course, you don't have to dive back to the 80s and deal with all of that stress just to enjoy the fun. You can take a look at some of our Karate Kid gifts and you'll soon be living a life of nostalgia... and maybe even perfecting that crane kick while you're at it!
There are a few things that might be helpful to know while you're looking through these officially licensed Karate Kid accessories. First, you might want to know a bit more about Mr. Miyagi. Is this guy just a quirky janitor that happens to know a thing or two about martial arts because of his upbringing? Well, that might seem to be the truth at first. But, Miyagi is quite an experienced guy.
He learned karate from his fisherman father back in Okinawa. He and his best buddy learned the martial art together until they ended up in conflict over Yukie, a gal that they both loved. Rather than be forced to fight his friend or make Yukie choose, Miyagi moved to the United States to start a new life. There, he fought in World War II and gained a ton of medals and service awards during his tour of duty. That's the kind of guy you want to be your mentor! There is a lot more to Miyagi that he keeps a mystery. For example... what's his name? We're not even sure on that one. The various films named him Nariyoshi, Keisuke, and even Miyagi Yakuga. Fortunately, you only need to know him as Mr. Miyagi... or maybe Sensei if you're lucky.
The other side of the spectrum is the leader of the Cobra Kai. John Kreese could have had a very similar life path. Military bred and highly capable. If only he wasn't such a jerk obsessed with winning all the time! His focus on victory over everything else not only lost him the tournament for his dojo, but definitely made his students a little messed up, too!
That doesn't mean that the rest of the Cobra Kai are all bad. They join Danny in the desire to become the very best student of Karate they could possibly be. You can join them in their path to success by picking out some of your favorite Karate Kid memorabilia. From belts, figures, headbands, and even full Karate Kid costumes, you'll find everything you want to bring your favorite series of movies to life.
