golf n’ stuff

from the karate kid posted in movies by pete_nice

Daniel-san and Ali begin (and continue) their courtship at this magical mini-golf course and video arcade. The decor is still very similar today, although the water slide was torn down in the mid-90s.

ali’s house

from the karate kid posted in movies by pete_nice

This Karate kid film location is Ali's (Elizabeth Shue) house. Daniel pulls up to the fancy digs with his mom in her station wagon to pick up Ali, and his wrong-side-of-the-tracksness becomes evident. Ali's parents come to the door in matching traffic outfits, and then the Larusso's have to push the station wagon away.

karate kid’s school

This Karate Kid film location is Daniel-san's high school, and is also known as the Charles Evans Hughes Middle School. It was used in several scenes for the first Karate Kid: when Daniel and Ali are talking outside, the soccer field, and the road where Daniel causes a car accident as he runs by in his shower costume.

karate kid’s apartment

This location is also used when the Cobra gang in skeleton make-up kick the crap out of Daniel-san by the fence. Then Mr. Miyagi jumps in and throws the smack down on the d-bags in the Cobra gang. It is extremely gratifying. You have to imagine the fence without weed and shrub growth.

Mr. Miyagi's workshop is also at this address. It was a film crew build on the ground level in a space that is currently a parking stall.
