Cobra Kai Season 1 Recap
Johnny Lawrence was beaten by Daniel LaRusso at the All-Valley Karate Championship 34 years ago. Daniel is now the successful owner of a car business, while Johnny does odd jobs to keep himself afloat. When he is practically at rock bottom, he meets Miguel, a youngster who also happens to be his neighbor. When Miguel is tormented by other schoolboys, Johnny steps in to save him, much as Mr. Miyagi had defended Daniel from him and his buddies. Miguel is impressed by his abilities and wants Johnny to teach him karate, but Johnny declines.
He has a change of heart when he meets Daniel again. His car is damaged in a hit-and-run and is towed away to Daniel’s car service, where they reminisce about the tournament. The memories of his defeat, of how he had been treated by his mentor after it, and the fact that Daniel’s daughter, Sam, had been one of the girls in the car that hit his car, collectively changes Johnny’s mind. He restarts Cobra Kai and takes Miguel under his tutelage.
The Rivalry- Past and Present
Johnny responds by vandalizing a LaRusso auto dealership billboard. Daniel attempts but fails to prevent Cobra Kai from competing in the All-Valley Karate Championship. When Daniel’s cousin, Louie, and his motorcycle companions wreck Johnny’s car, the attack takes a dramatic turn. Following this, both men ready to fight, but Daniel’s wife, Amanda, intervenes and gives them a chance to communicate before leaping on each other.
This leads to an unexpected friendship, during which Johnny tells him about his stepfather and how his bullying drove young Johnny to Cobra Kai and Sensei Kreese. 7 But then something unexpected happens, and everything changes.
The New Rivalry
Miguel’s life changes dramatically after becoming Johnny’s student. He gets beaten up again by the lads, one of them is Kyler, Sam’s boyfriend. But he gradually improves at karate and ultimately shows off his talents in front of the entire school by beating up his bullies. His deed is captured on tape, increasing demand for Johnny’s services.
Meanwhile, Sam’s first crush on Kyler fades as he makes a play on her. As a result, he spreads rumors about her at school, and Miguel beats him up. Sam is amazed by Miguel’s karate talents, despite the fact that he is unaware of her father’s karate training.

Another difficulty emerges with the arrival of Johnny’s son, Robby. Johnny had abandoned him and his mother a long time before. Robby never grew to respect his inattentive father. However, after Johnny’s life was back on track with Cobra Kai, Robby chose to irritate him by going to work for Daniel. When Daniel took him under his wing and began teaching him karate, his motives shifted.
This connection to the LaRusso family also brought Robby into contact with Sam, and Miguel envied their bond. When Miguel gets drunk and accidentally hurts Sam, Johnny realizes that Daniel has been training his kid, not believing that Daniel had no idea who Robby was.
Johnny enters the All-Valley Karate Tournament with the No Mercy ethos of Cobra Kai, the spark of enmity fanned between him and Daniel.
Miguel and Robby both compete in the competition. While Miguel is upset by his breakup with Sam, Robby simply wants to demonstrate his abilities. Miguel beats Robby, who had previously had an arm injury, in the final battle. Daniel cools down towards Robby and concludes that if he wants to defeat Cobra Kai and their brutal methods of taking over the valley, he must form his own squad.
Meanwhile, Johnny regrets pushing Robby towards Daniel and transforming his students into the very thing he promised Cobra Kai was no more. Furthermore, Sensei Kreese appears to be alive and well when he knocks on Johnny’s door.
