||This box set includes all three KARATE KID movies, directed by John G. Avildsen. ^THE KARATE KID|When New Jersey native Daniel (Ralph Macchio) encounters bullies at his new high school in Southern California, he is saved by Mr. Miyagi (Noriyuki "Pat" Morita), a handyman who turns out to be a karate expert. Daniel begs to learn this ancient martial art, and soon Miyagi begins the boy's training, teaching Daniel that there is more to karate than fighting. Morita is a gem as the elderly father figure Miyagi, giving the character warmth, wisdom, and comic charm. 1984's THE KARATE KID inspired an entire generation to run out and join the nearest karate school while chanting "wax on, wax off."^THE KARATE KID II|Miyagi and Daniel return to training after a triumphant victory. But when bad news brings Miyagi home to the island of Okinawa, both he and Daniel embark on a journey that will challenge them mentally and physically. The emotionally charged adventures of Daniel and Miyagi are set against the beauty and honor of old world Japan, instilling a rich sense of history into their mastery and understanding of the ancient art of karate. ^THE KARATE KID III|In the third installment, old villains return to get their revenge against Miyagi and Daniel. This rousing continuation of the adventures of Daniel and his teacher includes fast-paced karate sequences and an inspirational soundtrack, now synonymous with THE KARATE KID films.
