The new generation of teen characters on Cobra Kai informed a lot of what the Karate Kid characters have become. Johnny Lawrence wanted to train bullied kids like Miguel, Eli and Aisha. Daniel LaRusso has been training Johnny’s estranged son Robbie (Tanner Buchanan) while his own daughter Samantha, played by Mary Mouser, finally decided to pick up Karate at the end of season one.
Season two of Cobra Kai has as much drama with the younger cast as it does with the Karate Kid veterans. Samantha and Miguel broke up when Miguel got too aggressively into Cobra Kai. She’ll be training with Robbie under her father’s Miyagi-Do style, and can’t stay out of her father’s rivalry with Johnny.
