Trilogy of action films. In 'The Karate Kid' (1984) Daniel (Ralph Macchio) arrives at his new school in Los Angeles and soon finds himself bullied by a bunch of karate-trained creeps. Help is on hand in the form of the school janitor Mr Miyagi (Pat Morita), a wise old martial arts instructor who trains Daniel to become a karate expert. In 'The Karate Kid 2' (1986) Daniel decides to accompany his teacher Mr Miyagi to his home island of Okinawa. Mr Miyagi has not seen his home in 40 years, on account of a vicious feud between him and an old friend over the affections of a woman. Meanwhile, Daniel is in similar trouble after falling for a girl who has captured a bully's fancy. Finally, in 'The Karate Kid 3' (1989), Daniel returns to Los Angeles and is emotionally blackmailed into defending a championship title he doesn't want and becomes upset when his mentor Mr Miyagi refuses to train him for the bout.
