Daniel may be new in town, but he's already made an enemy of Johnny, the toughest kid in school and a karate black belt. There's only one solution-Daniel has to learn karate, too. But can Mr. Miyagi, the old Japanese handyman, teach him enough to face Johnny in the All Valley Championship? And more important, can Daniel win back the girl he loves, and regain his own self-respect? Daniel stood in the bow of the boat, practicing his blocking exercises. "When am I going to learn to punch?" he asked. In response, Mr. Miyagi began to rock the boat, breaking Daniel's rhythm and tipping him. Unceremoniously, Daniel landed, shoulder first, in the cold water. When he emerged, sputtering, Mr. Miyagi answered his question. "When learn keep dry," he said wryly, and helped Daniel climb back into the boat. "More important than learn punch or block," he continued, handing Daniel a towel, "is to learn balance. Balance is key. When balance good, karate good. Everything good. When balance bad, better fix quick or pack up and go home. Understand?" "Yeah."
In a new adventure that begins where THE KARATE KID left off, Daniel and Mr. Miyagi travel to Okinawa-Mr. Miyagi's boyhood home. There, Mr. Miyagi is challenged to a karate duel-to-the-death by Sato, once his best friend. When Mr. Miyagi meets a long-lost love, Daniel meets a new girl friend, and then finds his courage tested to the limit in a confrontation with a vicious young karate expert who will stop at nothing to defeat him.
When Daniel and his karate teacher return to California, they find that Daniel's old enemies from the Cobra Kai dojo are waiting for him.
