Justice for Johnny

(I saw this today on the Cobra Kai Facebook page, some of the comments are pretty funny.)

Paul Caulfield - John Kreese does not tolerate losses via illegal kicks to the head in his dojo and effectively shunned Johnny after. Johnny was unable to secure further instruction in Karate due to his reputation, leading to a downward spiral into drugs and homelessness which would never have happened had he been recognised as the true all valley champion. Johnny's dignity, self respect and hope for the future was put in a body bag that day.

Wayne Michael Zahra - Not only johnny was kicked in the face the tournament is for brown belts and above . Some poor guy trained his ass off to make it to the tournament only to have his belt stolen from a bag .

Let me guess Daniela is the victim once again . Daniela is a cheat !

Adam McCartney - True. However, perhaps the judges decided to look the other way on the Crane Technique after seeing all the dirty tricks and bad sportsmanship demonstrated by ALL of the Cobra Kai during the tournament.

Ian Corcoran - Leave now.

Abner Berrios - Larusso cheated. Mr. Miyagi stole a belt and he give false information in the application he said he have a Miyagi dojo he does't have a karate school Larusso can't be a black belt.

The facts prove Larusso is a cheater, the tournament organization must do a review of documents and present charge against them for fraud.

That's a federal crime.

Adam McCartney - It's way beyond of the statute of limitations now. Too late to file charges.
