calm down, man. Save some
for the tournament. ( exhales sharply ) Hey, don’t even bother. He’s been super aggro
ever since the breakup. ( exhales sharply ) Well, where’s sensei? The tournament’s
gonna start soon. – Aisha: 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… (stammers) A carton of milk. Clerk: ( scoffs )Bert: When I heard him
in the parking lot, yelling.Johnny: You want to be
his father? Fine!( liquid splattering )Now who’s pissed? Uh, Sensei? Everything all right? We’re all gonna die, kid! – We’re all gonna die!
– ( glass shatters ) 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.Aisha: 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.Johnny: 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.Miguel: Great.Let’s sign up.Johnny: Not yet.There’s one more lesson
I have to teach you.Man: ( over PA )
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 learnthat 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 scream ) All right, guys,
let’s get down there and kick the shit out
of everybody. ( together ) Yeah! No. You’re not wearing those.Man: ( on TV )
Well, it’s a good thing
today is Sundaybecause it is gonna be sunny
outside here in LA…(continues indistinctly)So is this the plan
for the whole day?‘Cause I was thinking maybe
we could swing bythe DMV or maybe a funeral.You know, put a little pep
in our step.Come on, guys. So your boyfriend
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: ( on TV
speaking indistinctly)I’ll go if you want to go. – I didn’t say anything.
– Sam: I know. I just know it’s your thing. ( scoffs )
Not this year. Everyone I know
is gonna be there. It is the 50th anniversary.( exciting music )( indistinct chatter )Man: ( over PA )
Please take your seats.The competition
will begin shortly.Great turnout. I’m telling you, it’s all about
the blue mats. Yeah, I’m sure word
really got around. We don’t have to stay long.
We’ll just check out
a few matches, and we’ll hit the road,
all right?– George: There he is.

champion in the flesh. Good to see you, champ. Are you sure
you don’t want me
to keep the car running? Go ahead. How are ya?

Huh?You did a great job

if he hadn’t resorted
to that sweep, you totally
would have had him. I don’t need your sympathy.Daryl: There can be only one
true winner,and he is standing
on this stage right now. Will it be Miguel Diaz from Cobra Kai Karate? Whoo! Will it be Hawk… well, I guess it’s just Hawk from Cobra Kai Karate?– Daryl: Huh?

of Topanga Karate, Xander Stone! ( cheers and applause ) ( feedback screeches ) 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. ( sighs ) 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? ( both laughing ) 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.
– ( chuckles ) – 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.Xander: And as I look around
this arena,I pray for every race,
religion, and genderthat we can all
live together in peace. Please join me
in a moment of silence as we strive to end
intolerance in our time. Hey, kick that pansy bitch

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.Man: Okay, come on!Man: Yeah!Something wrong, Sensei? No. Show him what you got. ( cheers and applause ) Whoo!( rock music )Prepare to face the fury

You’re disqualified. Bullshit! – Are you okay?
– Get the hell away
from me. Hey, back on your side. What the hell
are you thinking, man? What was I supposed to do,
be a pussy? – ( applause )
– You all right, kid?Robby: I’m fine.Daryl:
With that disqualification,Keene earns a trip
to the finals.We’ll see him back here
after a short break.( soft flute music )( groans ) 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
become…him.Trust me.You let go
of all that anger, and I guarantee you,
what happens tonight, you go home feeling great. ( chuckles ) ( sighs ) 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.( dramatic musical sting )( rubbing hands together ) Medic! Is there a medic?Man: ( over PA )
The final match
will begin shortly.( laughter ) 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
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? – ( shoulder pops )
– ( groans ) 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.( stirring music )( cheers and applause )♪ ♪This is it, folks. The moment we’ve all been
waiting for. The final match to determine
who will be victor

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. ( cheers and applause ) Face me.

Warning for illegal contact
to the knee.( crowd jeering ) 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.Daryl:
Whoever wins the next pointwill be our new champion!It’s 2-2.
Next point wins. ( shouts )Man: Okay, good luck

you bury your bodies

to Miyagi-Do Karate. ( door opens ) Miguel? Man: Congratulations. You did
what I always thought
you could do. You won. Cobra Kai is back
where it belongs. Back on top. Everyone closed
