I loved The Karate Kid growing up. I’m pretty sure my brother and I fought each other after every viewing, back in 1984. I was 9 years old and watched that video tape often. I always love a good underdog story, standing up to the bully. Daniel was a loner and just trying to stand up for himself. I loved the theme about balance. Even … Continue reading Sweep The Leg!
