Karate Kid is the ultimate underdog teen movie and 80’s martial arts classic! Seriously, who can forget Daniel LaRusso vs. Johnny Lawrence of Cobra Kai at the All Valley Karate Championship? Ok, granted the fight scenes were bit cheesy but you can’t even say the word “dojo” without thinking about the Karate Kid.

How about the crazy villain, Sensei John Kreese, who encourages his students to bully weak kids? This guy was supposedly an ex-Special Forces Vietnam Veteran. Who knows what happened in Nam that made him such a vicious nut ball!

For those that haven’t seen the movie yet you should definitely watch it. If anything to see a young and cute Elizabeth Shue! Geez, she was hot back in the day!

I’m getting side-tracked now! Anyway, check out the 5 awesome Karate Kid t-shirts below!

tournament

“Get him a body bag, yeah!”

sweep

“Sweep the leg!”

bow

“Bow to your Sensei!”

cobra

“Strike fast, strike hard, now mercy!”

miyagi

“Wax on, wax off.”

Of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a Karate Kid video clip! In the video Ralph Macchio looks like a scared ferret on crack…

Ok, here is an extra t-shirt for the hard core Karate Kid fan; 80’s Tees offers the “Referee” t-shirt, which can be seen in the video above.

The front side of the t-shirt simply says “Referee”. If wearing a referee t-shirt from the Karate Kid movie isn’t funny then I don’t know what is!
