Of all the relationships I could talk about within the Karate Kid, I am choosing to talk about mine. With Ralph Macchio.
Of course I am talking about the original Karate Kid. For me, there is no other.
In 1984, I was 12 years old and I think I fell in love for the first time. With Daniel Larusso from the Karate Kid.
Those brown eyes. Those blue tracksuit pants. The soccer skills, on the field, on the beach. The shower costume. The black eyes and sheer defiance. Not to mention all the waxing.... on and off....
Daniel/Ralph posters adorned my walls and my school books, feeding my daydreams about the day we would meet and he would realise that I was the only girl for him.....
I can't help it Rocky. I give the Karate Kid a 10/10. Thanks for the memories Ralph!
