YouTube Red released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming "Karate Kid" TV sequel, "Cobra Kai". We also see memories of the past, including newspaper clippings of LaRusso's stunning upset in the All-Valley Karate Tournament, Lawrence on a Cobra Kai flyer encouraging sign-ups, and young men and women undergoing karate training.

With Mr. Miyagi's life lessons, Daniel has found personal success in his own family and career as a vehicle dealer. The underdog sports movie was popularized by Rocky less than a decade earlier, but The Karate Kid stood out among them.
