The Karate Kid,Part II (1986)

The Karate Kid,Part II (1986) is a Hollywood adventure-drama movie and is a sequel to The Karate Kid. Both Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita, formerly of Happy Days fame, respectively reprise their roles of Daniel LaRusso and Mr. Miyagi.

Filming locations include the island of Oahu, in Hawaii, USA.

At the 1987 ASCAP Awards, Bill Conti won Top Box Office Films for the original music, which was released on United Artists Records.

Part II begins where the first movie ends off, when Mr. Miyagi confronts evil martial arts teacher John Kreese (Martin Kove), who is loudly berating his student (and Daniel's former nemesis) Johnny for finishing second in the All Valley tournament. When Kreese breaks Johnny's second place trophy, Miyagi has seen enough. After a short brawl that mostly involves Miyagi dodging blows and Kreese punching the car behind him, Miyagi defeats Kreese, humiliates him (by eschewing a fatal strike in favor of honking Kreese's nose) and then watches as all of Kreese's students, including Johnny, dump their dojo uniforms and belts and walk away, departing from Kreese's dojo and his sadistic form of martial arts. Miyagi then explains to his protégé that being unable to forgive one's enemies is a fate worse than death itself.

Six months later, Miyagi and Daniel travel to Okinawa to visit Miyagi's dying father and martial arts teacher. They are confronted by his old nemesis Sato (Danny Kamekona), whom Miyagi fled Okinawa years ago in order to avoid a fight to the death with, Sato's rebellious nephew Chozen (Yuji Okumoto), Miyagi's ex-girlfriend Yukie (Nobu McCarthy) and her niece Kumiko (Tamlyn Tomita).

As Miyagi and Yukie re-kindle their old bonds (after fleeing to the USA Miyagi had thought that Yukie had married Sato, but she actually preferred to remain single the rest of her life than doing so), Daniel learns more about Japanese culture with Kumiko's help and falls for her. Later, he has to protect Miyagi's honor and the life of Kumiko and a little farmer girl in a fight to the death with an humiliated Chozen, who has been disowned by Sato after he and Miyagi made amends thanks to Daniel.

Daniel and Chozen fight in a water-surrounded center, and Chozen seems to be getting the upper hand and even Daniel's Crane Kick is no match for him. However, Daniel defeats Chozen with multiple strikes to the face, and then spares Chozen's life in the same way that Miyagi spared Kreese's life at the beginning of the film.

For those wanting to put their songs in the correct play order, they go as follows:

01-Jan and Dean - (Bop Bop) On The Beach
02-Paul Davis - (It Takes) Two To Tango
03-Bananarama - Cruel Summer
04-St. Regis - Rhythm Man
05-Shandi - Tough Love
06-Broken Edge - No Shelter
07-Gang Of Four - Desire
08-Baxter Robertson - Feel The Night
09-Commuter - Young Hearts
10-Joe Esposito and Beth Anderson - You're The Best
11-Survivor - The Moment Of Truth

There are still two missing and extremely hard-to-find songs, which would fall into tracks 3 and 6. These are "The Matches - The Ride" and "Broken Edge - Please Answer Me".
