The video left Garfield overwhelmed as the actor reacted, “Miyagi-Do for life. Thank you. I’m very moved and touched by that. That was one of the best moments of my life.”
What is Miyai-Do?
For those of you who have not watched Cobra Kai yet, Miyagi-Do is one of the karate dojos. At the start of season 4, Daniel LaRusso’s Miyagi-do and Johnny Lawrence’s Eagle Fang teamed up to take down Cobra Kai in the all-valley tournament. However, the two had a fallout for not much longer as the dojos often found each other’s teaching methods clashing. Season 5 picked up right where season 4 ended.
Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) sidelined John Kreese and took over Cobra Kai. Silver won the all-valley tournament against Daniel’s Miyagi-do and Johnny’s Eagle Fang. As per their agreement, the two are forced to close up shop. However, Silver might fool everyone but not LaRusso.
Cobra Kai’s influence spreads rapidly, and the drama between the fighters continues to build. Every season of Cobra Kai has exceeded expectations and season 5 is no surprise. The stakes are higher than ever, and blood will be spilled. Moreover, Terry Silver vs. Daniel LaRusso will have you at the edge of your seats.
Garfield to star in Cobra Kai?
In an interview, the producers of the show Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald, spoke about the possibility of Garfield joining Cobra Kai since he is such a huge fan of the series. Jon revealed, “As to any specifics, I probably shouldn’t say anything because who knows? Maybe he will be on the show, and I don’t want to take any chances of ruining that.”
Only time can tell if or not Garfield will be a part of the upcoming seasons of Cobra Kai or not. Till then, you can watch all seasons of Cobra Kai only on Netflix.
