Apparently Johny's life hasn't been going so well since since they faced off at the All Valley Karate Tournament in the first movie, or met again in "Karate Kid Part II". "Cobra Kai will be a true continuation of the original films - packed with comedy, heart and thrilling fight scenes". As you can see in the trailer above, Daniel and Johnny are at odds, but they will likely end up working together as some new bullies come into the picture: a wrestler named Kyler and his thug brothers who see karate as a joke. Macchio and Zabka are also on board as executive producers.
"I just don't know why you'd ever want to bring back Cobra Kai", Daniel tells his high school enemy while they stare at each other across the renovated dojo.
Of course, an aspect of Cobra Kai that the teaser has yet to touch upon is that said rivalry will transcend generations as the respective children of Daniel and Johnny will continue the martial arts enmity.
"We are not trained to be merciful here".

The iFixit team threw their heat gun, razor blade, hacksaw, spudgers, and screwdrivers at the device before it came apart. Plus the microphones are almost flawless at hearing your voice commands regardless of how loud you're playing music.
The series debuts on YouTube later this year.
We also learn that Daniel's wife and business partner Amanda is being played by Courtney Henggler, while Mary Mouser plays their spitfire daughter, so you can bet they'll have a say in Daniel, now a successful auto dealer, getting back into the fighting game. The show will also feature Johnny's pupil (Xolo Maridueña), Daniel's family (Courtney Henggeler and Mary Mouser as his wife and daughter, respectively), and Ed Asner, as Johnny's stepdad who, I think we all hope, gets a chance to offer some old guy wisdom in the absence of Morita (who died in 2005). Or if such lines can be drawn at all.
What Is Cobra Kai About? Not exactly the most compassionate of life lessons. Johnny, however, has fallen on hard times.
