This is a little bit out of our usual fare, but is anyone else a fan of the KARATE KID films and the offshoot Netflix series COBRA KAI? Like most 80s kids, I saw the original movies at the theaters when they were new, but I didn't expect that universe of characters to be revived as a successful streaming series in the 21st Century. It's pretty compelling watching, and many of the characters and their conflicts are reminiscent of wuxia in some ways, but with a modern spin. I view Mr. Miyagi as a Janitor Monk/Cheung 3 Fung figure. Daniel LaRusso could be any number of wuxia protagonists, and even Johnny Lawrence has emerged as a kind of Kiu Fung-type tragic figure.
