Karate Kid (1984) new locations!


Check out my previous blog to check out the South Seas apartment from The Karate Kid.

On this latest trip, I checked out a couple new locations from the film.  First up is the school...

  1. Hmm. I'm not positive, but I think Elisabeth Shue's house was also Tawny Kitaens' parents house in "Bachelor Party". It sure looks like it.

  9. Dude, this is the bee's knee's. Thanks for doing this. If I ever make it all the way to California again, I'll try to find the house and school.
    To this very day, that movie makes me shudder with anxiety at what it must have felt like fir Daniel to uproot and move somewhere totally new and crazy intimidating.
    Much appreciated your work.

  10. Thanks a ton for this. That movie still makes me shudder with anxiety at what Daniel must have felt like at that new school.
    Your work is much appreciated. The 80's ruled and this movie was the pinnacle for me.

  14. Nice! I was the first one to track down Elisabeth Shue's house many years ago... long before Google Earth and smartphones...I was stoked! You should check out Golf-n-Stuff, the 2 Karate Dojos used for Cobra Kai & the tournament site sometime ;) Alas, it looks like we'll never find poor Mr. Miyagi's house...

    1. Mr. Miyagi's house was finally found, but has since been torn down but was at 20924 Gault Street. I definitely am planning on getting to Golf N Stuff on one of my trips!
