Netflix Watch Party: Karate Kid (Virtual)

NWP Karate KidOn Thursday, November 5, STATIC hosts a Netflix Watch Party featuring the original Karate Kid. Event begins at 8:00 p.m.

In Karate Kid, “Daniel (Ralph Macchio) moves to Southern California with his mother, Lucille (Randee Heller), but quickly finds himself the target of a group of bullies who study karate at the Cobra Kai dojo. Fortunately, Daniel befriends Mr. Miyagi (Noriyuki ‘Pat' Morita), an unassuming repairman who just happens to be a martial arts master himself. Miyagi takes Daniel under his wing, training him in a more compassionate form of karate and preparing him to compete against the brutal Cobra Kai.”

STATIC will ask various pieces of Karate Kid universe trivia, with the winner taking home some amazing prizes.
