FW MOVIE PICK: THE KARATE KID

My favorite 80’s flick and marital arts flick of all time! A martial arts master agrees to teach karate to a bullied teenager. The film stars Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita and Elisabeth Shue. The movie is truly a product of its time, but it is still tons of fun. Not only for its two lead characters, but for its unorthodox martial arts training lessons such as, “Wax on, Wax off”, “Paint the Fence” and “Sand the Floor”. And lets not forget about the crane kick at the end of the final karate match. A worthy recommendation for the fans!
