The Karate Kid III

Factual error: The storyline in Karate Kid 3, based on the happenings and reference points of the first two movies, is supposed to take place roughly about late 1984, or early 1985. However, if you look close at the beginning of the film when Terry Silver drops off John Kreese at the airport, there are several cars that are definitely later 80's models.

Trivia: When Daniel is persuading Myagi to use his college money to buy a store for selling Bonsai trees, he takes a wad of cash, smells it, and says, "Hmm. Looks like money.smells like money." Ralph Macchio has practically no sense of smell at all, so just for fun he always makes a point to smell something in every movie he does.

Question: Was there a particular reason why the defending champion only fought in the last fight/round? Why exactly did the rules change in this tournament?

Chosen answer: My guess is that they wanted to give everyone a chance to fight to the end without a bunch of people needing to fight the previous champion, and therefore be knocked out early by someone of obviously higher skill.

Johnny Lawrence was the champ the previous year. And he fought his way to the championship.
