  1. "Calling all meat heads and wana b bad asses to the KARATE KID CHALLENGE" R. MACHIO will probably get his ass waxed off…

  2. This black guy that challenges Harvey is an Ignorant dumbass. He needs to study up on the history of the White Crane.

  3. <In my Maury Povich voice> "In the case of the crane kick…..Mr Miyagi, you said 'If done right, no one can defend.' Chozen on Karate Kid part 2 proved……THAT WAS A LIE!!"

  4. My cousin Vinny… this show is nothing but haters … that the world we live in people getting paid to hate on people smh

  5. Listen… BROTHA, Ralph would FUCKING jack you up. Free facelift for you, Son. Custom. Not all BROTHA'S know how to fight. If they do, it's 8 on 1. DON'T be talking like you're the next Black Panther & shit. Show some respect & walk away from someone who could FUCK up your world. Bow NOW to your sensei, Son.

  6. So does he fucking know karate?…. Good job answering the question in big bold text.. You talk about a 30 year old movie and not the reality of it all… Fuck.. Fuck tmz

  7. A front face kick is actually illegal in karate competition. So Daniel-san would have been disqualified in real life. 😆

  8. So many people have been knocked out by the crane kick. I personally have connected with it twice as a teen.

  9. I WATCHED the WHOLE series and this was BAD ASS… My name is John and my brother is Daniel. I always thought what a fucking coincidence and plus my colors are black and gold and I wear bandanas so I totally was ALL JOHNNY and Cobra Kai. the last episode SPOIL ALERT ….. Johnny's SENSAI is BACK. I want to WATCH season 2 like NOW…

  10. That was not the crane kick that was a front kick to the face no one has used that ridiculous ass crane kick in the UFC

  11. That was Lyoto Machida just doing a jumping front snap kick. Not a crane kick. Never held his arms up high over his head and standing on one leg with the other leg held in midair like forever. No telegraphing like the joke the crane kick was in the movie. Regular people were impressed but martial artists everywhere were rofl.

  12. Look. The Crane kick is just a leaping front kick. It can work if done correctly. Macchio did the pose for dramatic effect. You still have to have a guarded stance doing it.

  13. On the MMA fight shown , it's not a crane move, it's called a jumping front kick which is a legit martial art kick.

  14. The black guy is an idiot.. worked or not.. the crane kick is ICONIC. What everyone remembers from the movie.

  15. That is a jump front kick that man used to score the knockout in the UFC fight. The Crane is not an actual Martial Arts technique.

  16. Big mouth black dude is going to get knocked the "F!" out with that same kick one day! Mark my words! Freakin big mouth!

  17. Ok, so this dumb dude is saying that the cran kick was the most ridiculous move and standing in a pose for a min. But you would have ran into it too back in 1984. Nobody would of known that was coming. Great movie and actors. Hands down to Pat. We miss you R.I.P.

  18. Well Ralph Macchio pretty much did say what Van is saying- Ralph Macchio mentioned in another TMZ video 2 years prior to this video that the Crane Kick doesn't work in a real competition fight. He said, "You might get your lights knocked out if you try using the Crane kick in a fight!" So they actually share the same opinion.

  19. you've gotta be on pretty blind offense to charge right into a crane kick. by that measure, it totally could have worked on Johnny Lawrence 😛

  20. The diffrence is machida dint have his arms in the air when he trew that kick. Cheers to machida. He did the same move last knick on vitor belfort who has gotten kod twice by the same move.

  21. I’m 32 I’ll I’ve been doing karate since I was about 14 but I’m most good at Muay Thai and bjj but even though the crane kick looks a little generic I guess you could say it does work and that black dude that says it don’t seems like a guy who drinks from a rainbow cup so I don’t think he would know

  22. That black dude would probably get his ass handed to him, by a non black belt karate rookie lol. Wish somebody would sweep the leg, show no mercy, and put all these tmz doucbags in a body bag!

  23. Of course the black guy would get cocky and say try it out lol Anybody ever seen the show Alone, where the black dude talked his street shit about if a bear and he got in a fight ……any guesses on who tapped out of the show first? lol upon hearing a bear outside his camp ironically lmfao give it up with the jive–it's played out, and only pathetic white people are intimidated by the jive and buy into it , and laugh at it and such….further how many black navy seals are there? there sure are a lot of "Gangsters" though , i.e. crips and bloods lol that set trip and can't even unite with "their own people"

  24. That’s a jumping switch kick not a fucking crane kick you morons. This can be found in tkd, karate, and probably some other kicking or self defense form idiots. Now we know none of you guys can fight.

  25. That krane kick is bullshit Johnny walked straight into just like the black guy said it doesn’t work and it’s an illegal kick and Ralph Macchio doesn’t know how to fight.

  26. FUCK YOU TMZ!!!
    Also… the crane kick might be fictional and seem like a dumb move in the real world but…….. I'll be damned if its not an excellent balancing exercise
    Remember the scene when Miyagi was practicing on a tree stump? Seems legit IMO

  27. If Fumio Demura (Miyagi’s stunt double & real martial artist) practices it, then it’s clearly legit.

  28. Both Ralph Macchio and William Zabka learned martial arts just for the Original Karate Kid Movie. Neither had previous martial arts training; however Zabka was an accomplished wrestler.

  29. It would have been cool if he turned out to be a karate master. He will forever be the karate kid. So great!

  30. That’s not a Crane kick, it’s a nidan geri jodan-a flying front kick to the head. I’ve been training for almost 50 years and have never heard of a Crane Kick. “Daniel” couldn’t fit off my 84 yo mother. He’s a pissweak Nancy boy who can’t fight and could not survive to earn a black belt or its equivalent in any martial art.

    The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai are pathetic jokes…especially Daniel and Miyagi Do.

  31. I would like to try it out on the black brother😂 it's actually called the front kick. Anderson Silva used it on Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida used it on someone to. It's been used several times today in the ufc the crane kick AKA front kick. So if someone connected with black guy. He would be knocked out cold. It rattles the brain so hard. I've used it on people face the front kick to the head hurts.
