The Karate Kid II is an entirely new adventure for Daniel-san: we find out at the beginning of the film that high school sweethearts Daniel and Ali are no longer together as they parted ways after prom.
Shortly thereafter, Mr. Miyagi receives some bad news regarding the health of his father in Okinawa. Upon learning of the news, along with his master’s unresolved issues he has with a former friend, Sato in Japan, Daniel decides to come with Mr. Miyagi for moral support, using the money for his college tuition for a plane ticket to Japan. While there, Daniel finds familiar obstacles to Reseda in the form of local bully, Chozen,as well as a new love interest, the beautiful aspiring dancer, Kumiko. The film (of course) culminates in an epic karate battle with Chozen, resulting in Daniel’s victory.
