The series’s plot is about Johnny Lawrence, who works as a part-time handyman, is in his fifties, and stays in an apartment in Reseda, Los Angeles. He has an ex-girlfriend Shannon Keene and a son named Robby Keene. But he had abandoned both of them since he was really not over his then high school girlfriend, Ali Millis. Once after getting debarred from his job, Lawrence had used Karate to save his neighbor Miguel Diaz from getting bullied by a mob.
Miguel was extremely interested in learning karate, which made John reopen Cobra Kai karate dojo. This activity somewhat rekindled his past rivalry with Daniel LaRusso. Daniel is the owner of a successful car dealership chain and has two children named Samantha and Anthony.
However, John’s dojo classes attracts a group of bullied social outcasts who found self-confidence under his tutelage.
