“The Karate Kid” reboot trailer

Come join me in watching Will Smith’s son Jaden and Jackie Chan in The Karate Kid remake, won’t you? Forget that it’s set in China and karate is a Japanese martial art and that the karate in this movie was changed to kung fu yet the title still remains The Karate Kid. Also, forget that Jaden is only 11 while Ralph Macchio was in his 20’s when he played the role of Daniel Larusso. These facts have no bearing on the movie whatsoever. Yea, Jaden seems a little undersized, but that’s inconsequential once Jackie Chan teaches little Jaden to “jacket off.”

Jus to let you know, the term Karate is rather generic. Generally what people refer to as ‘Karate’ mean Tae Kwan Do to be more precise. In either case, you’d find out that such is of Korean ‘ancestry’, not Japanese.

wch, why does a simple search show that all definitions reference Japanese form of martial arts? Search here.

Also, if the term Karate is used generic, it is from lack of knowledge of those using it. Tae Kwon Do is Korean not Karate.

Using Karate as a generic term is like using American football being used to describe Australian football.

Anyway, the Karate Kid franchise died after KK II. They should let it go.

Koreans like to claim they invented everything, they probably think Jesus is Korean and the bible is probably written by Koreans also.
