Trivia: William Zabka (Johnny) produced the music video for No More Kings' single titled "Sweep the Leg Johnny." The name comes from Kreese's infamous line at the end of the movie and the video for the song includes Karate Kid cast members William Zabka, Ralph Macchio (Daniel), Tony O'Dell (Kobra Kai Jimmy), Rob Garrison (Kobra Kai Tommy), Ron Thomas (Kobra Kai Bobby), Martin Kove (Kobra Kai sensei Kreese), and Erik Felix (Kobra Kai student Robertson).
Trivia: The name Miyagi and the karate style he used are based in truth. The real Miyagi lived in China and combined Okinawan techniques with Chinese kenpo to create the Gojuryu style demonstrated in the movie. However, many of the moves performed, such as the "crane kick", were created solely for this movie and do not exist in the style.
