The Karate Kid

Daniel Larusso spent way too much of his life taking out his anger at being fatherless on his stupid bike. Lucky for him, he found the perfect replacement in a creepy old man who made him do chores. But Mr. Miyagi also taught Daniel the two most important things a dad can teach his son: how to fight and how to use chopsticks.
