The movie was about a young american kid who went to japan with an old karate master friend expecting to have a good time, but instead was caught in a family feud and was being bullied by the nephew of the other family.... He found himself deeply involved in a serious trouble and was left with no other choice but to fight and defend himself and his new found friends.... Ganyan lang kaikli yun he-he....! Just a summary only of course, but in the real movie you'll find yourself getting carried away, sinking, drifting, and being washed-off by each and every scene.... It was quite an explosive movie that time....
It all happened when just recently i stumbled upon an article about the japanese main girl character in that movie, and i found out that she is half filipino pala....! How come i didn't know that....?! I've seen that movie over and over for maybe about 10 dozen times but never had i stumbled on any print, television, or radio media ads saying that the girl pala in that movie na kahit bata pa ako nun ay naging crush ko pa yata ay half pinoy pala....! Anyways, that was long time ago and that only proved that i was destined to be a real astig pala ha-ha....!
The girls name is Tamlyn Tomita, daughter to a japanese father and a filipino mother.... I just wonder where those people are now and what are they being busy about in the present time....? That includes also the karate kid himself, Ralph Macchio.... While Pat Morita, Karate Kid's Mr. Miyagi, died at the age of 73 in November of 2005....
